Got questions about INKOMPASS? We're here to answer them all

A INKOMPASS career internship program offers a 2-cycle approach because it is an experiential job interview, giving you a better chance to showcase your skills and abilities and giving us a better chance to get to know you.

Across the two cycles, you will work on projects that will allow you to discover our business challenges, opportunities, processes and systems.

The 1st cycle will give you the opportunity to discover several aspects of our company (i.e. operations, people and culture) through projects that allow you to interact with people from different areas.

The 2nd cycle will give you the opportunity to experience a deep dive into a specific department or functional area.

A We strive to ensure you have a great 1st cycle experience so that you eagerly look forward to get selected for the 2nd cycle.

However, in case you do not want to continue, there is no obligation for you to do so.

A Staying in touch with you throughout your college students’ internship journey is very important to us. You will hear from us between the 2 cycles of your internship, through:

1. Invitations to company activities and events;

2. Communication from your COACH and BUDDY.

A This program is intended for DR residents only, if you are studying and living in the Dominican Republic and have permanent residence in the country, you may apply.

A As a first step, submit your application by clicking on the “Apply Now” tab – located at the upper-right corner of this webpage.

If your application form meets our criteria, we will send you an invitation to complete two online tests – one that will assess your ability to manage numerical data and another one that will require you to make decisions on a wide variety of simulated scenarios.

If you successfully pass to the last step, you will be invited to participate in an exciting on-ground assessment day, consisting of different activities and fun exercises that you will go through individually and as a team with other fellow applicants.

We end with an appreciation party, a celebration of your efforts and a great networking opportunity. Fun is a constant through this experience!

You will receive feedback along the process, letting you know whether you made it to the next step or not.

A Unfortunately, the on-ground assessment is mandatory. It is an event where were our executives and HR team can meet you face to face and understand the strengths that you will bring to our company. This is a one-time event/experience.

A Yes. You will be informed of your application progress during each step of the process by your registered email. Whether or not you meet the criteria to progress on to the next application step, you will receive an email confirmation regarding your status. If you do not hear back from us within 2-3 weeks of completing an application step, please send an email to both Sandra.Mesa@pmi.com and Paola.Santos@pmi.com
