4.9 of 5 stars

Lincoln, NE | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Helping people, being able to structure your time and business in your own fashion. Earn your way up, tenure doesn't matter.

Downers

Overwhelming, so much knowledge to take in at a time. You are literally test driving this career and doing the same thing full time guys are doing. Negative outlooks, before people see what you do they are very skeptical but once you take them through the process they realize you are there to help.

Advice to Potential Interns

Build your habits to be successful. Develop good language. Make minimum 15 dials a day, minimum 2 meetings a day and you will be successful in your internship. Never assume someone's taken care of, a little tweak to an existing plan can make a massive impact on their future.

Advice to Management

Prepare the structure of full time a little more. The shift of freedom to checking in almost 4 times a week kind of diminishes the excitement behind running your own business.

Would You Recommend

Yes

An internship that exposses students to the industry, Northwestern Mutual, personal and professional growth, and great experience.
