RSM has heart: Virtual internship experience

Culture RSM careers

In transitioning our U.S. internship program into a built-from-scratch 12-day virtual experience, our interns experienced immersion into our culture through development opportunities and connectivity with RSM professionals and leaders.

One of our summer interns told us, “RSM has heart. Simple as that.”  We feel the same. And this is the feeling we hoped to deliver throughout our 2020 virtual summer internship this past July. Human connection is something many of us are striving to figure out in this new world, and a sense of belonging and connectivity topped the list for developing an impactful, innovative and collaborative environment in which our interns could thrive and learn.

I absolutely feel like I am part of a rich and diverse family that is eager to learn about who I am and has courage in sharing who they are. Your attitudes and behavior were genuinely enthusiastic and warm. It truly showed and made all the difference. Thank you for the outstanding message of The Power of Being You really coming through.

We strived to create an environment throughout the internship program that demonstrated our genuine care for our colleagues and interns, and a real commitment to our communities. We included our interns in dialogue around our position and actions on racial understanding, and actively solicited their ideas on enhancing the impact of RSM’s stewardship across our Birdies Fore Love program, our university giving platforms, and our diversity & inclusion initiatives.

We know every one of the thousands of personalities that make up RSM brings value and unique insights—differences that we celebrate and make us stronger.

Given the situation, this internship was better than I could have imagined. The company culture seems so consistent across the firm. Across different positions, different lines of business and even different office locations, everybody genuinely seems to love what they do.
