best professional decision i have made in my life
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

being full-time as an intern, you do exactly what you the full-time advisors do


Downers

the only downside of the internship is you have to get out of your confort zone immediately. that's why so many people fail at the internship becusae its not hard and nobody can make the calls or build your business for you. but if you do fight through those uncomfortable moments. paradise is on the other side.


Advice to Potential Interns

this internship will never give you more out than what you've put into it. you have to be able to work hard and if you do you will be very successful

Phenomenal
Syracuse, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

One of the best aspects of the internship is having the opportunity to test drive a full time career and obtain great work expereince. I have obtained a vast amount of skills that could be used in many other jobs and fields through my intenrship at Northwestern Mutual. Another great aspect of the internship is flexibility. Having the ability to set your owns schedule to work around your college schedule allows students to work year round and maintain their practice.


Downers

The most difficult thing about the internship is time managment. I had a very difficult managning my time with a high amount of responsibility and accountability expected.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you are looking for an amazing opportunity to test drive a full time career and work with some of the best planners in the industry, there is no other place to be.


Advice to Management

There really isn't much that I would change. I think Northwestern Mutual is an amazing company and a great place to work. Compensation is great as long as you put in the work and effort. Northwestern Mutual has some of the best training and development programs I have ever seen. I would advise management to continue doing what they are doing!

An opportunity to mature; personally, professionally & financially.

Uppers

Support, Office culture, Training, Entrepreneurial, Real life person to person interaction


Downers

It's hard work. If you're not ready to mature, it may not be a fit.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you're looking for a career where income is relatively unlimited, you have the independence to design your own work calendar & make your own business decisions, & you want to make an impact on peoples lives, then the career at NM should be entertained. The internship program is the gateway into that career. We urge our college financial reps to testdrive this career to its maximum potential.
