Congrats everybody!
Now starts the hard part for the rest of us waiting :(

My guess is that they send all emails regarding certain companies on same days, so as soon as I know that someone who applied for the same company as me get selected I surely start panicking XD

Keep the hope alive. Until we receive the "wait until 1st round finish" mail we may receive the mail.

That´s said, I´m quite pessimistic :S

Any info guys?

I'm a bit stressed out right now. I just read the 2017 shortlisted thread and they said that the company number 30-41 just chose 3 students out of all the 22 positions offered...
I'm scared they might do something similar this year and select less students than the positions they offered :cry: :cry:

Speaking of that company, on the spreadsheet I saw that other Italian girls applied, just like me! Forza ragazze! :P

They never cover all positions. There is a budget limit. I´m also quite stressed, but I don´t think I will be lucky on Monday. Lets hope I´m wrong.

PD: I found in twitter another selected, (for application nº 11). He was notified Thursday, around 15:30.

Last year my company didn't choose anybody for example, and a lot of position hasn't been cover (just 26 were covered). Let's see if we have some news on Monday :|

Not even a person?? We're applying for the same company (different positions) so this scares me even more...

But why do they propose so many positions but choose so little partecipants ? Also their traineeship are very interesting! It's a pity they can't realize all of them, or at least 90% of the proposed

I was wondering if any of the forum admins are still active so that we can get our very premium, "shortlisted" / "selected" group memberships and if there are any more hidden parts of the forum for those groups with more information?

Can you see the Shortlisted and selected forums? I think that there is no more information.

But I agree with you. Without the memberships you cant post there.

If I remember correctly, the e-mail from center stated, that the matchmaking will end "after 08/04". So, it could still be going

Thats right. This was the email:




@MK16 There is a Selected Forum (I suppose that only shortlisted members can see). If they dont give you the "Selected" tag I can try to send you the information. There is only 3 post if I remember it correctly.

EDIT: I have just checked. There is a [YEAR] Selected threads and 3 information threads. I could copy the information threads and share it to you, if they dont update your status.

EDIT2: This was written by an admin in the selected forum: "Admin note: You can share anything you like in Selection since the forum is invisible to regular users and guests."

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

Posted: 08 Apr 2019, 19:16
by AsiaBergamini94
So it means that this was the last day for the match making and maybe we will know something by tomorrow?
Still I find very strange that none of the applicants for numbers from 30 and above have heard anything :/
Even someone else who might join the forum in these days...

Please end my suffering soon!!

This old admin should get a kick in the nuts for forgetting this wonderful community and not taking better care of it. I apologize.
All ranks and requests of membership should be taken care of.


In case any of you lucky people are shortlisted (and selected) and do not yet belong in the appropriate group, you may request membership in your Usergroups page in your User Control Panel.

Hi everyone,

I finally managed to create an account for the forum.

My name is Danae, I am an undergraduate student in the University of Piraeus, department of Digital Systems and was selected for position number 11. This is my first time applying for vulcanus and I am excited and anxious at the same time.

@hidesagred97 for placement no 6. Actually, they changed the topic of my internship but it was fine for me. I'm an undergrad (in Biochemistry though, not really related lol) so there will be lots of learning anyway :D

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

They did, they contacted me about this a month ago but told me to wait for EU-Japan Centre's decision so I wasn't sure about anything until I received an email from Vulcanus. I guess, a lot of companies select applicants but the Centre makes a final decision who gets the grant. That could explain a lot of placements left empty each year

No, they only informed me of topic change (which is because of their change of staff) and wanted to know if I am still interested in the internship. Your case is different! This company accepts a lot of students each year, so don't feel down.
