Northwestern Mutual - A Top 10 Internship

If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, want real-world business experience and are looking to make a difference, then an internship with Northwestern Mutual is right for you! Our internship has been highly rated due to its mentorship and career advancement opportunities, intern involvement, resume enhancement and unique appeal. But that’s just the beginning, other benefits include:

  • Practical guidance in your career selection process
  • The chance to develop networking and business relationship skills with the help of a mentor
  • Flexible work schedule
  • Securities registration and state licenses for life, health and accident insurance
  • Compensation in the same manner as a full-time Financial Representative
  • An opportunity to try out or get a head start on a career as a financial representative

One out of three former interns becomes a full-time financial representative following graduation. Our internship will give you a solid foundation of business-building skills and knowledge for immediate and future career success. The confidence you develop, coupled with insight you have gained as a financial representative intern, can put you on the path toward a profitable and fulfilling future.


A Day In The Life of a College Financial Representative


As full-time college students, interns in the Network typically work 15-20 hours per week developing business and client-building skills.



In most aspects, our interns follow the same process for establishing their careers as our financial representatives by:

  • Meeting with clients
  • Analyzing clients' situations
  • Making recommendations
  • Providing on-going service

As a Northwestern Mutual Intern, you will find that our college program is more about developing people than selling products.  We value relationships and our desire is to make a difference in the lives of others.  You will learn what it takes to be successful, while sharpening your skills in communications and marketing to help build personal and professional self-confidence.  You will also discover the rewards that come from helping others as you bring a full service approach to your clients' needs and provide guidance and solutions that will have a positive impact on families and businesses for years to come.
