Internships at RSM

At RSM, you’ll be valued as an individual while interning with our firm. We recognize your accomplishments and unique potential, and mentor you as a future leader. By working directly with key decision makers—both inside and outside the firm—you’ll move quickly along the learning curve to jump-start your career in accounting or consulting.

Your internship experience

Orientation and training – You will be prepared for your client service role through a combination of formal and informal training.

Hands-on experience – You will have the opportunity to see a variety of clients and work directly with key decision makers and company owners.

Events – From lunch-and-learn workshops to sporting events or community service projects, interns will gather with their peers and co-workers to develop both personally and professionally.

Mentorship and performance management – Interns are paired with both a navigator and a career advisor to help them transition into the role. The navigator is a great peer resource for all the new-hire questions during assimilation to our office. The career advisor will be there to ensure your experience is meeting your goals and that you’re working toward that job offer.
