Meet a Few of Our Career Changers


Field Director

Josh began his professional career working a sales position in the home improvement industry. While gaining valuable sales experience where he was, he knew deep down he was looking for a way to springboard into a career as a financial advisor. After meeting a Northwestern Mutual representative at a job fair, Josh discovered his personal beliefs aligned well with the company philosophy and immediately knew it would be a great fit for him. Over 12 years later, Josh couldn’t be happier with his choice to change careers and join the Northwestern Mutual team.

Following his entry into the business, Josh learned about the environment at Northwestern Mutual firsthand, and utilized his immense ambition to thrive. The freedom to handle scheduling and communication with clients, something he hadn’t experienced with previous opportunities, helped Josh excel in his new role. Learning to create a harmonious balance between his clients’ beliefs and his financial advice was the biggest component of Josh’s career change, and now he feels comfortable and in control of helping his clients. If you choose Northwestern Mutual, you are backed by strength and values that you never have to be ashamed of - they are some of the best in this industry.
