Mission: In response to the Great Commission, Compassion exists as an advocate for children to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.
I have been working at Compassion International full-time (More than a year)
I have worked at Compassion for about a year and three months and I could not be happier. My manager genuinely cares about me and my personal and professional development. The people are the best part about working at Compassion. Everyone on my team and most of the people I have interacted with have the mission of releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name at the forefront of their minds. That really helps break down the barriers that could divide us. Everyone wants what's best for the mission. Having a strong mission mindset is helping to foster an amazing culture where everyone is building each other up.
Not so much of a downside as a personal preference. Cube-land is not my favorite thing. I wish the workspaces were more open and collaborative.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Compassion International.
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.
These are the 8 basic ingredients needed to build healthy partnerships - in life, in business and in ministry.
Part 2 of our "Ask Jimmy" series focuses on global development improvements and our focus on church partnership.
