    I have been working at Compassion International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic management, a culture that most would find to be impossible to come across, staff that truly care about each others' successes, and a mission that couldn't be any more important.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Application

    Interview

    There was an introductory interview with a recruiter on the phone which lasted about 30 minutes and then an hour phone interview with the hiring manager. I applied for two intern positions and was given an interview for just one.

  • Part 2 of our "Ask Jimmy" series focuses on global development improvements and our focus on church partnership.

    Ask Jimmy: Global Development Improvements and Church Partnership

    A few weeks ago, we asked you on Facebook, "If you could ask Compassion president Santiago "Jimmy" Mellado one question, what would it be?" Well, we got some great questions from you and have compiled his responses in the "Ask Jimmmy" blog series.
