Got questions about INKOMPASS global internship program? We're here to answer them all.

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

If you apply and are accepted to an INKOMPASS internship in a country that is not your primary country of residence, you will be responsible for covering any expenses that may arise in order for you to be present and available in the internship country for the duration of each cycle.

If, on the other hand, we send you to another country for business purposes, then all related expenses will be covered.

What is the selection process like?

The application steps for this summer internship program are the following:

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

2. Complete the online assessment test

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. You will have a chance to showcase your skills in business cases and team activities, network with other applicants, and meet current Philip Morris Kazakhstan employees. 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?

No, unfortunately, OGA is held once per year only.

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 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.

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

What are the normal work hours?

All INKOMPASS interns will work under the same conditions as other PMK employees in terms of working hours - from 8:30 am till 5 pm with 30 minutes lunch break, 5 days per week (Monday-Friday). Also Philip Morris Kazakhstan offers a Flexability approach, by which you can choose the most suitable working hours.

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

Yes, the INKOMPASS internship offers a very competitive salary.

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

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.

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.

How will my performance be assessed?

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 the 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!
