Life changing experience. Knowing full well from the years of interning that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I got to be my own boss and had all the coaching and mentorship I needed. Worked with clients and helped people on a day to day basis.


Downers

The only negatives from the internship came from me (whether I didn't do the right amount of activity). Interns are definitely dealing with rejection on a daily basis, which may be hard for some to overcome.


Advice to Potential Interns

Amazing opportunity that may only happen once in a lifetime. You are learning real world skills and can impact people on a daily basis.


Advice to Management

Maybe more accountability to interns who go back to school during the fall and spring semester.

Testdriving a full time career with unlimited potential. Training is immaculate.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learning experience. Deciding what I wanted to do with my future. Becoming a financial advisor and dealing with financial planning everyday excites me.


Downers

Structure. I was basically my own boss from day 1. It is tough coming in as a college student and not having any structure or anyone telling you what to do from 7am-3pm. I basically set my own hours, and appointments.


Advice to Potential Interns

The sky is the limit. If you want to make $50,000+ right out of college, this is the best place to start.


Advice to Management

Strucutre. It was difficult to stay on task or decide what exactly I wanted or needed to do each day. It was hard to motivate myself. Might be different for others.

It's a wonderful program for a hard working person looking to create their own success.

Larger stipend up front as not all college kids can rely on their families to buy a suit, put gas in the car, etc.

It doesn't get more real than this! By the time I graduated I was off and running with an amazing company with a limitless future.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

You actually do what full-time reps do. There's no front desk/paper crunching about this. You work side by side with some of the most successful advisors in the nation. The education and experience is invaluable.


Downers

Can't say there were to many things a didn't like. Cold calling would have to be the one thing I didn't like


Advice to Potential Interns

Well from a company stand point, Northwestern Mutual is viewed as a top company in the financial services industry. You don't have to wory about company recognition. The name speaks for itself. Everyone I've met that works here will do everything they can to make you successful. They really care about you and your future. Just an overall great experience.

A real life, hands on experience, providing impact, independence, personal/professional growth and some nice compensation!

Uppers

It was not a desk or paper pushing internship, it was very hands on and by the end of it you knew if you wanted to continue to full time or not.


Downers

To be young in the industry was a challenge


Advice to Potential Interns

This internship will prepare you for any full time career, even if it does end up being with Northwestern Mutual. You wil grow tremendously as a personal and professional. However, you will only get back as much as you put into the internship.
