    Since ESA states that they introduced a new system in which the applicants can track the status of their application, this petition has become redundant.


    New petition description: ---
    UPDATE:
    The Head of ESA Recruitment Service reached out to us to inform us that ESA is introducing a new system that will include information about the application status:
    "[...] please be informed that ESA introduced a new system beginning of this year which allows all candidates to follow the status of their application. It also allows ESA HR to notify each candidate of the outcome of their application. Therefore, as from now on, all candidates to ESA positions will be informed of the outcome of their application."
    Since this is exactly what this petition was going for, there is no need for signatures anymore. Thank you very much to all who supported this, and even if it didn't make a difference, it is good to see that others shared our opinion! Thanks a lot to everybody!

    The European Space Agency (ESA, www.esa.int/ESA) is a supranational agency uniting its European member states in space research. Its Young Graduate Traineeship (YGT, www.esa.int/About_Us/Careers_at_ESA/Graduates_Young_Graduate_Trainees) program gives young applicants coming fresh out of university the opportunity to join ESA for a year and gain valuable experience in the space domain.
    The yearly application process for the over 100 YGT positions is highly competitive and successful candidates will be invited to interviews. Whoever does not proceed to the interview round, however, will never get any notification at all. We believe that it would support the ESA community if every applicant would get a response, no matter how short or anonymous, and are petitioning for ESA to introduce rejection emails for the YGT program.
