Indonesia internship program
 

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

Why does INKOMPASS offer a 2-cycle approach?

INKOMPASS, as a student 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.

What happens if I don’t want to commit myself to participate in the 2nd cycle?

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.

What happens between the 2 cycles of internship?

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. An exclsuvie INKOMPASS mobile app, which will allow you to keep in touch with the global INKOMPASS community;

2. Invitations to company activities and events;

3. Communication from your COACH and BUDDY.

I reside outside of the country where I would like to do my internship, can I still apply to the program?

Yes, you are welcome to apply for our paid internships. Please note that the selection process will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia, and the internship assignment will be also in Indonesia. We won't cover any transportation and accommodation expenses for participants from outside Indonesia.

Each cycle lasts 6 weeks. We adjust the schedule and provide batches based on university schedules. The 1st batch is in July - August 2019. However, the fixed schedule of each batch won't be flexible.

What are the normal work hours?

Interns will be subjected to 8 AM - 5 PM working hours, from Monday - Friday.

Is the INKOMPASS internship paid? What contractual conditions will I be under as an intern?

Yes, the INKOMPASS internship offers a very competitive salary. Salaries vary on a country-to-country basis. You can apply to our paid internship program through our website.

Will I be assigned a group project or an individual project?

You'll have the opportunity to experience both. In your 1st cycle, you'll be subjected to a group project, and in the 2nd cycle, you'll be subjected to an individual project. 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 in an individual or group setting.

What type of guidance and support can I expect to receive throughout my program, to help develop me professionally?

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.

What is the criteria for advancement to the 2nd cycle of the program? How will I be assessed?

During the 1st cycle of the student internship program, 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 behaviours 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.

Will I receive feedback regarding my performance? When?

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!

Can I use my internship project experience as a university assignment and / or as credits for graduation?

No. Internship project is strictly only for the use of company. We will be able to, however, provide you with a confirmation letter that you have undertaken an internship in the company.

Will I receive a job offer with Philip Morris International when I complete my internship?

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.
