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.
