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

 Why does INKOMPASS offer a 2-cycle approach?

INKOMPASS Paid Internship for College Students 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. Invitations to company activities and events;

2. 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?

Unfortunately, internships at PMJO are open only for Jordanian citizens only.

What is the selection process like?

To apply for this Paid Internship, please follow the following application steps:

If you meet the criteria, you will be invited to the next step.

3. Participate in an on-ground assessment (OGA), the final stage of the recruitment process. During the OGA, we will meet face-to-face and get to learn more about each other.

If you meet the criteria, we may invite you to be an INKOMPASS intern!

 If I cannot attend the on-ground assessment, are there any other dates available?

Unfortunately, and due to availability of the attendees, we only have one date for the on-ground assessment.

 Will I receive feedback if I don’t get selected? When?

Yes. You will be informed of your application progress during each step of the process via 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.

When will the internship start and how long will it last? Is there any flexibility with these dates?

Target date to start the first cycle of this paid internship for college students is August or September. We are quite flexible to accommodate to students availability.

What are the normal work hours?

From 08:00 to 17:30, with half an hour lunch break.

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

Yes, it is paid, with limited contract (under the Jordan Labor Law) for the duration of the internship 2 months.

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

You will be part of a team where you will have your own share of projects as well as support the team.

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, 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.

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?

Yes

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.
