EU Careers Q&A Day Summary!

Yesterday (9th April), TYA Answers hosted an EU Careers Q&A Day! 

The aim was to give students an insight into what it's like to work for the EU institutions and to allow them to get their questions answered by current EU employees.

We had some really interesting questions, covering topics such as which languages are the most useful for prospective EU employees, the difference between translation and interpreting work, and how to prepare for the application process!

Special thanks goes to Charlotte Sanderson, Senior EU Staffing Officer in the Foreign Office, for answering questions on the day!


  • Users logged on from the UK, the USA, France, Spain, Canada, Germany, Italy, India, Luxembourg and the Philippines (year abroad students are a well-travelled bunch!)
  • TYA Answers now has over 1100 users, with over 200 of those logging on to ask, answer and discover on the day
  • Almost half of the visitors to the site on the day were new users
  • 99 different institutions and organisations are now registered on TYA Answers
  • The questions on TYA Answers have been viewed over 67,000 times

Here's a taster of the questions:

The questions and answers will stay on the site for future year abroad students and graduates to learn about EU careers.

There is also an EU Careers section on with articles, advice and case studies to give a further insight into working for the EU.

Thank you so much for taking part in the day and we hope that you continue to use and enjoy TYA Answers!
