Minneapolis, MN | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Having the ability to effect another's life in a positive way, versus worrying about grabbing someone coffee or be treated as an "intern". I designed my own schedule, met the people I wanted to, and had a lot of fun "working"

Downers

The job is hard, and with the wrong attitude it can cause the daily tasks to feel really difficult.

Advice to Potential Interns

Based on my experience, put faith in the people who mentor you and continue to work -- even when it gets tough to do that.

Advice to Management

Continue to do the things you do. Perhaps from a recognition standpoint, put a little more emphasis on clients attained, and really emphasis the importance of T20 by making that a mandatory accomplishment.

Sample Interview Questions

How do you act in the face of adversity.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Best internship for professional experience and lifelong skills

The pressure of knowing what it takes to get the full time offer and being pushed to do so.

Advice to Potential Interns

Relize early on that this is a great opportunity and if you want to take advantage of it you must do so as soon as possible.

Advice to Management

Some interns give northwestern mutual a bad name after the fact. Because of how they pushed something on someone who didn't want it.

Be sure to try to meet as many people at the firm as you can during the interview process- you'll be struck by their knowledge, integrity, and people skills.

This is for the person who wants their hard work and skill development to dictate their trajectory and income. It is also for the person who wants to be affiliated with an incredible world class company, but have the opportunity to build their own practice and clientele.

Continue to educate them on the aspects of the career that are hard for most people to attract the right person.
