Audit Intern

June - August 2021 • Edison, NJ

What I liked

I really enjoyed all of the different talks that we, the interns, were given during the orientation period of the internship and the in depth overview of some of the tasks that we possibly would be doing. The talks allowed us to learn more about the company and what RSM stands for. We learned about RSM's service to the community and how it helped out during the pandemic, we learned about what RSM did for its employees, and it was a great to hear about all of it. I also appreciated the introduction to company systems during orientation as it took a lot of stress away from when we actually began to work.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to do more work during my time there, however, the summer is not a very busy time so that was understandable.

Advice

I would take full advantage of this experience and really get to know the other employees and partners within your office or general area. Everyone that I spoke with had been more than happy to speak to me about the company and it allowed me to see what RSM and its company culture is really about. Because of my interaction with others, my already good experience was taken to another level and my internship experience remains as the highlight of my summer.

Process and Risk Control Intern

June - August 2021 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

Got actual industry experience, employees were very helpful and were eager to help you learn. Great company culture.

What I wish was different

I wish that more people had been in office. Every once in a while everyone would go in, but it wasn't the best experience all remote.

Advice

Reach out to the Partners. They were very eager to meet with the incoming interns and always available to help out when needed. Great relationships were built by just sending them a simple email.

Business Tax Entities Intern

June - August 2021 • Davenport, IA

What I liked

The opportunities and culture at RSM stand out amongst large public accounting firms. Working with primarily middle-market clients as opposed to Fortune 500 companies allows you so much more exposure to all aspects of client work. Additionally, RSM cares about its employees, and this was apparent throughout my whole internship. Employees and partners at all levels made it known I could ask them for help with anything I needed. There were multiple service/social events during my summer with the firm, and I never encountered a person I didn't like. I am very excited to return to RSM full time as a Tax Associate next fall!

What I wish was different

Intern in the spring if it works with your schedule to have even more client work opportunities!

Advice

Take notes when you receive answers to work-related questions to improve your ability to work independently and showcase yourself as a quick learner.

Risk Consulting Intern

June - August 2021 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the people that I had the opportunity of working with and the company culture. RSM gave me the tools to learn a lot on my own and have the resources available to ask other employees for help and guidance.

What I wish was different

I don't wish anything had been different. I had a great experience.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions, go the extra mile, and be diligent.

Value Added Tax(VAT) Intern

June 2020 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I enjoyed learning about what it’s like working at RSM and their culture.

What I wish was different

Since my internship was moved online, we mainly focused on what RSM has to offer their employees. I would have liked to learn more about VAT. I was able to shadow my job for a day and had a lunch meeting with a senior manager to learn more about what I would be doing on a day to day basis.

Advice

Make sure the culture/ ethics at the place you intend to work are something you agree with and want to be apart of.

Accounting and Financial Outsourcing Intern

October 2019 • Blue Bell, PA

What I liked

I liked that I was able to work from home due to the pandemic. It enabled me to take more time to do things like study for my summer courses. Plus I liked that the team was so friendly and I had many different people to ask for help with certain projects if I were to get stuck.

What I wish was different

I wish that projects would have been different from one another. Most days I felt as if I was doing exactly what I have done the day before, other than that, I would not have anything different.

Advice

Advice I would share about this experience is, do not be afraid to ask questions for help. The specific department I was in, worked with a lot of different companies and each company had its own way of doing it. Of course, there was so many different rules and procedures to follow that it would sometimes feel confusing on what to do.

Audit Intern

January - August 2020 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I liked the ability to experience what a busy season within a public accounting firm would look like and how it would work. I got to learn how to go through an audit process with several different accounts for different clients.

What I wish was different

I honestly don’t wish to change any of experiences I encountered.

Advice

I’d say go in ready to learn as much as possible and to not be hesitant to ask questions. All the employees are very helpful and would rather you ask them questions.

Tax Intern

January - April 2020 • Waterloo, IA

What I liked

Being at RSM, I really enjoyed the challenge that preparing tax returns brought me. Never preparing tax returns before, I got to get my hands on 30+ tax returns for both businesses and individuals. Being at a smaller office, it gave me the freedom to prepare multiple tax returns a week, and I enjoyed this. The tax managers and associates did a great job at answering any questions I had, and made the internship great all around. I also really enjoyed the office environment, and all of my coworkers.

What I wish was different

I enjoyed every aspect of my internship so I would not of changed anything!

Advice

I will give two pieces of advice because these are very important. Do not be afraid to ask questions and self review your work every time.

Assurance intern

June - August 2019 • McLean, VA

What I liked

I loved the office and people I worked for. The work environment and culture at RSM is uplifting for an accounting firm. My fellow internship friends were amazing and we all hung out out of work a lot. I loved the work environment and how the employees treated us.

What I wish was different

I can’t wish much more. I was on one client for 3 weeks I do wish I was on a couple for weeks at a time. My internship experience I was on 3 different clients which was nice.

Advice

My piece of advice is to go in with an open attitude and just be very willing to learn. Everyone wants you to succeed!
