Know that it is a tough business to start in, but it is also probably the most rewarding.

I feel that as interns we are unable to use some useful tools that the company has which would make us more productive as interns.

This internship will show you if you have what it takes to have a successful career with Northwestern Mutual
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Flexability of schedule and the ability to work around my class schedule


Downers

The internship is easy to go through the mothions, but to be successful you have to be self-motivated. This self-motivation along with extream flexability can be hard to manage for someone 18-21 years old.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't just go through the motions and collect the $100 wekly check. As an intern, you have the exact same income potential as the most successful full-time reps.

Yes

Perfect opportunity to test drive a career
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Getting real world experience, having managers/mentors who are amazing people who truly care about my success, getting ongoing training and experience, having the opportunity to gain networking experience, being a part of a company where people truly care about others and do their best possible job to help others, being surrounded by ethical people on a daily basis, having the opportunity to a full time position and leadership positions.


Downers

It can be extremely stressful at times when you are super passionate about and sometimes that was hard to handle while balancing school, track and my horse back riding.


Advice to Potential Interns

You HAVE to be good about time management. You need to be disiplined and independent. The mentors will support you and do all that they can to help you succeed but they aren't going to hold your hand and make sure that you are calling people everyday or meeting people everyday.


Advice to Management

I honestly can't think of anything to improve on...


Would You Recommend

Yes

Northwestern Mutual provides its interns with the experience of working as a full-time financial representative with 100% support.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I love the company culture and the support staff behind it. With this internship, the only reason one could have problems is if they get in their own way.


Downers

The job itself is not the easiest as you have the same responsibilities as full-time representatives, but there are no complaints about the internship program itself.


Advice to Potential Interns

No matter what, Northwestern Mutual will give all interns the opportunity to gain professional business experience working with clients of any caliber. The flexibility of the schedule and the additional growth opporutnities that they offer will constantly keep you on your toes and always learning.

Real world experience, test driving a career, professional licensure and certification, lots of valuable learning.

There were many interns who were of high quality but also quite a few that were not and it would be nice if Northwestern Mutual would be able to screen out the ones who are not serious better...


Advice to Potential Interns

As a true mutual and client-owned company Northwestern Mutual embraces core values of integrity and doing what is right for the clients. This culture is a really special environment to learn and become a part of.
