Consulting career discovery for students: 2021 Campus Automation Challenge

It’s important to us to develop meaningful experiences for candidates, particularly for students considering what they might do for a career upon graduation.


Our Campus Automation Challenge welcomed students across the nation to work in teams with RSM coaches to compete in building a bot that automates an everyday business process. For most students enrolled in the challenge, completing courses in Automation Anywhere’s online university program was the first time they’d been exposed to robotic process automation.

My favorite part of the automation challenge was learning a new skill that will be helpful for me in the long run. The main thing I got out of the challenge was the ability to make lasting connections with the people in my group as well as RSM employees.

Participants engaged in one-on-one conversations with RSM coaches to learn more about the daily life of a consultant at RSM and the variety of opportunities a career in consulting can provide. Our inaugural Campus Automation Challenge provided college sophomores leadership experience, gave them a chance to develop a new skill set, and allowed them to make connections with fellow students and RSM professionals across the country.
