Internships

RSM Career Centre recommends students to do at least one internship during their studies. An internship is an opportunity to take a closer look at a company for a short time. You can find out more about a job, about the organisation’s culture, and whether it suits you or not. All of the experience you gain during an internship is valuable for making decisions about your career and for your future.

RSM MentorMe

Your alumni community is here to help. Make a positive change with support from people who’ve been there.

We want to connect current students and RSM alumni through mentoring because it helps current students and recent graduates to prepare for their future. If you are an RSM graduate and you volunteer to become a mentor, it can also help you to become a better manager, or improve the way you deal with teams and colleagues.

Why join?

RSM MentorMe connects current students and RSM alumni through mentoring. Why you should join?

For students:
  • Take the hassle out of networking and talk directly to someone who’s been there and done that
  • Have actual company and industry insiders critique your resume and/or cover letter
  • Practice for your big interview with former company insiders who can tell you how to land the job
