Do you have questions about our opportunities? Check out answers to some of our frequently asked questions by clicking the titles below.
Q. Do you accept applications from candidates from any degree discipline?
A. We consider candidates from a range of degree disciplines. Certain business areas, however, may have specific requirements. For example, if you're interested in an Engineering Internship or Graduate program, you must have (or be studying towards) a degree in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering or electrical engineering. Such requirements will be clearly outlined in the job description.
Q. Can I apply for an internship even though I have already graduated?
A. You can. But please be aware that the program is fixed-term and not a permanent role within the company.
Q. If I graduated more than a year ago, can I still apply for the graduate program?
A. You can – but depending on your work experience, you may be offered a different entry point into the company. Our graduate programs are not suitable for people who have completed a formal graduate program with another employer. So if you have already completed a graduate program before, we would not be able to accept your application.
Q. How can I prepare for the online tests?
A. One of the best ways is to attempt the practice questions we’ve provided. They’ll familiarize you with the content and format of the tests.
Q. Can I get feedback after each stage of the application process?
A. Due to the large number of applications, we are only able to offer feedback after the assessment center.
Q. What can I expect during the assessment center?
A. During the assessment center you’ll meet people from our business and be given an overview of the company. Assessments can include a group activity, a presentation, a role-play exercise and an interview with somebody from the function you have applied to. You’ll have opportunities throughout the day to ask questions about our early career programs and what it’s like to work for us. You’ll also have the chance to meet some of the people currently on those programs. Ultimately, it’s as much a chance for you to get to know us, as it is for us to get to know you!
Q. How should I prepare for the assessment center?
A. Our assessment centers use a variety of exercises to give you the best opportunity to demonstrate your skills and experience. To make sure you’re prepared, we’d recommend reading a book on assessment centers. There are many good ones out there and they can tell you what to expect.
Q. How long does each early career graduate program last?
A. The length of our early career graduate programs is usually three years but this may vary according to the type of program and the country it’s offered in. Please refer the specific job details for more information.
Q. What should I expect from the 'on demand' video interview?
A. If you are invited to complete an 'on demand' video interview, you will be asked a series of questions and you will have the opportunity to re-record your answers until you are happy for them to be submitted. You will also be provided with detailed instructions and a helpful summary of tips and best practices for completing the interview.
Q. Do you sponsor non-EEA candidates?
A. We welcome applications from all candidates regardless of nationality. We select candidates based on the required criteria for each role, including education, skills, experience and other factors. All candidates, however, must have permission to work in the EU by the start of their employment. Each application will be reviewed against current EU guidelines.
Q. Where do I find the requirements for the job I’m applying for?
A. Please check the online job posting for the role you’re considering. This will include all requirements for the role.
A. We try to review all applications within two days of receiving your details. It can then take one to three weeks before we decide whether to invite you to an interview or assessment center.
Q. Can I submit my CV without applying for a specific position?
A. To join, you need to apply for a specific role or program. If, when reviewing your application, we think you’d be better suited for another role or program, we’ll let you know. You can also set up your profile to receive job alerts for any future roles you might be interested in.
Q. Should I include a cover letter with my application?
A. You don’t have to, but it’s probably a good idea. A well-written cover letter can sometimes make the difference between getting an interview and not. It also allows you to get across your personality in a way that your CV and application can’t.
Q. How should I prepare for the interview?
A. There are a few things you can do. For starters, learn as much as you can about Mondelēz International and the role you’re applying for. Then think about your experience and achievements, and why you’d be a good match for our business. The more specific you can be the better. Finally, make sure you’re relaxed. That way you can be yourself and have the best chance of making a good impression.
Q. Do you pay interview expenses?
A. It depends on what position you’re applying for and the country in which you’d like to work. Please see the job description or speak to the recruiter once you’ve been invited to an interview.
Q. How long will it take to hear from you after the interview?
A. Once you’ve had your interview, we’ll try to get back to you within a week to let you know the outcome.
Q. If I’m unsuccessful, can I reapply?
A. Absolutely. You can reapply and we will consider your application on its own merits, taking into account why you were unsuccessful the first time. Please note, however, that you will need to wait six months before reapplying for the same role.
Q. Can I be notified about new positions?
A. Depending on your location and area of interest, we can let you know when new vacancies arise. To receive job alerts for any future roles you might be interested in, log into your online profile and update accordingly.
Q. How do I update my profile?
A. You can update your profile at any time by logging on to the system and clicking ‘edit my profile’.
Q. Will there be scope for me to develop my career internationally?
A. One of the best things about working for a global company is the opportunity to work internationally. If you establish yourself within the business and prove you’ve got what it takes to succeed, we’ll be more than happy for you to bring your talents to any of our offices around the world, provided the right opportunity comes up..
