Requirements

Typical students are juniors or seniors. Students work full-time in the summer and part-time in the school year. 50% of the interns are from the business school and 50% are from economics, social sciences, education and liberal arts.

You'll find that the Northwestern Mutual internship is more than a summer job. It's a truly meaningful experience that builds your business skills and helps clients achieve their hopes and dreams. With support from your network office, you'll work for yourself, but never by yourself.

The hands-on intern experience includes partnering with financial representatives who show you how it's done through mentoring and joint-work programs. Like your colleagues in the network office, you have ready access to the resources of the Northwestern Mutual, including:

  • A coach who meets with you regularly to help evaluate and fine-tune your efforts for greatest results.
  • Trusted financial specialists and advisors with technical know-how to help you create customized solutions for your clients.
  • World-class Northwestern Mutual products and services including life insurance, disability income insurance and education funding options, as well as retirement planning, estate planning and investment options.

Specifically, you'll practice the personalized approach we use to offer financial solutions tailored to each client's individual needs. You'll follow these key steps in our process, working independently with guidance from experienced colleagues:

  • Meet With Clients: You'll set up appointments to discuss your clients' current financial situation.
  • Analyze the Client's Situation: Through extensive fact-finding, you'll uncover long-term goals that you will use to help determine your client's needs.
  • Make Recommendations: After evaluating your client's current situation and goals, you'll determine what products can help fill their needs and present appropriate solutions to your client.
  • Provide Ongoing Service: You'll continue to work with your clients beyond the close of the sale. Most financial representatives contact their clients twice per year to determine whether their needs have changed, and keep them aware of the resources available to them.
