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

A INKOMPASS 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 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 We welcome applications from inside and outside of the country. However, all candidates that are invited – as a result of their application and online tests – must be able to attend the on-ground assessment day which is the final round of the selection process . Moreover, all international travel and logistics costs during the recruitment process and internship program will be borne by you – unless you need to travel during the internship as part of your project requirements. Also, we expect our interns to be physically present in our premises during the 2 internship cycles.

A The selection process is as follows:

1. Complete the online application by clicking APPLY NOW. If you meet the criteria, you will be invited to the next step.

2. On meeting the application criteria, you will receive an invite for the digital interview via e-mail. It will help us in assessing your competencies which is critical for your success at PMI.

3. Next, you will receive an e-mail invite to take our online assessments. It will help us to assess your decision-making abilities on a wide variety of simulated scenarios. If you meet the criteria, you will be invited to the next step.

4. Participate in an on-ground assessment, the final stage of the recruitment process. During the OGA, we will meet face-to-face and get to learn more about each other. You will have a chance to showcase your skills in business cases and team activities, network with other applicants, and meet current Philip Morris International employees. If you meet the criteria, we may invite you to be an INKOMPASS intern!

A HireVue video interview is a digital interview that allows you to introduce yourself and your capabilities to us. HireVue enables you to complete your interview in your own time from the comfort of your own space. During the interview, we will be asking you a few questions on the competencies that you will have to demonstrate to become a successful intern at Philip Morris International.

A In case of any technical issues with the application or connectivity please address your questions here: HireVue (zendesk.com) The help desk will answer your questions.

A If you are not satisfied with your answer, you have the option to re-record it. If you choose that option, remember your second recording will be final and you will have to submit it.

A Once your interview is completed, the system will translate your recording into text by analysing your response. We do not consider other factors such as facial features but the scoring is solely done on things you say.

A Participating in the on-ground assessment day is a requirement for the recruitment process. Not only that, it’s an opportunity for all the candidates to challenge their limits and discover themselves while interacting with a wide group of people – not only other fellow applicants but PMI employees as well. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide additional dates to the one set for the on-ground assessment day. We will inform you well in advance if you are eligible for it, hoping that this will allow you to plan your activities and join us

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 contact us at contact @inkompass.global.

A The first internship cycle is planned as follows :

- 1st cycle : July 1st till August 13th, 2020.
- 2nd Cycle : July 15th to August 31st, 2021.

A Working hours are 8/9am to 5/6pm Sunday to Thursday with a one-hour break.

A The selected interns will work under an internship contract and will receive payment during the internship cycle. Further details will be provided to them at the time of the offer

A Depending on the project scope and expected deliverables, projects may require individual or group work. In any case, you can be sure that all projects will be meaningful, challenging, and give you the opportunity to showcase and further develop your skills, whether it is in an individual or group setting.

A Every INKOMPASS intern will receive day-to-day guidance and support from their COACH, who has the same function as a supervisor. He / she will introduce you to your project, clarify expectations, guide you on a day-to-day basis, and provide you with feedback.

In addition, you will also receive support from:

- Your PROJECT SPONSOR, who will ensure you have everything you need in terms of resources and budget to execute your proposals;

- Your BUDDY, who will help you answer general questions and network with different people and departments in the company.

A During the 1st cycle, you will complete a project with a definite scope and deliverables, based on which you will be assessed. We believe that both WHAT you achieve / deliver and HOW you do so is important. This is why you will also be assessed on the behaviors you display which should be aligned with our company’s work ethics.

Throughout the experience you will receive feedback and guidance so that you understand what is expected of you. The final assessment will take place at the end of each internship cycle.

A Your COACH and PROJECT SPONSOR will provide you with feedback throughout your INKOMPASS experience.

We also highly value your insights, feedback, and ideas, so please share them with us as well!

A Yes, you can. We can provide you with a certificate as proof of performance and attendance for your university.

A If you successfully complete both cycles of the INKOMPASS internship and meet the required performance standards, you may receive a job offer at the completion of your 2nd cycle.
