Step 2: Online Assessment
Shortly after submitting your application, you will receive an email inviting you to complete an online assessment. During RSM’s online assessment, you will need to complete some situational judgement tests and numerical reasoning tests. The assessment will take around 60 minutes to complete. The key to passing these assessments is to practise.
Step 3: Video Interview
You will be invited to complete a short video interview if you successfully pass the online assessment. RSM uses an on-demand video interview platform where you will need to record your answers after reading the questions displayed on the screen. There will be 5 questions, and the interview will take 15-20 minutes. During the interview, be prepared to demonstrate your teamwork, communication and leadership skills, creativity, and motivation to apply to RSM.
Step 4: Virtual Assessment Centre
RSM’s virtual assessment centre is an interview and will be conducted by two of their trained assessors via a Microsoft Teams video call and offers a fantastic opportunity for you to get to know them better. The virtual assessment centre is an opportunity for RSM to tell you a little more about the company and for you to ask questions.
In order to be successful, you should understand your strengths, what you are good at and how you deal with difficult and stressful scenarios. You should be able to demonstrate your motivation to apply to RSM, time management, collaboration, teamwork, analytical and leadership skills.

How to Pass RSM’s Online Assessment
In order to pass RSM’s online assessment, first, you will need to understand RSM’s culture and what the role you applied for entails. You should then start practising our situational judgement tests, which are developed to give you a sense of a real assessment. Our situational judgement tests are not timed. So, during your practice, please take your time and read the questions carefully to grasp what they are asking for.
For the numerical reasoning part, if you have not experienced them before, it is important to start from the basics. In our learning zone, you can learn the basics of a numerical reasoning test. We will help you understand different aspects of numerical tests. Once you can pass these tests, questions in the challenge zone will help you accelerate your skills. You should confidently sit RSM’s online assessment if you can pass the tests in the challenge zone multiple times.
