DescriptionWith the NM financial representative internship, you receive real-life hands-on experience. You will participate in our training program and be supported by our experienced Network of Specialists and mentors. As a Financial Representative intern, you start with client development and calling prospects. Proceed to meet with clients gaining an understanding of their financial needs. While working with other representatives - and by yourself when you are ready - you will learn to recommend products and services that can help give clients the financial security they seek. The internship can be a year round opportunity. You have the choice to continue your financial training during the school year, working around your classes and extracurricular activities on a flexible basis.
ResponsibilitiesWork for Yourself, Never by Yourself
You’ll find that the Northwestern Mutual internship is more than a summer job. It’s a truly meaningful experience that builds your business skills and helps clients achieve their hopes and dreams.
You’ll learn about our process. With support from your network office, you’ll work for yourself, but never by yourself.
The hands-on intern experience includes partnering with financial representatives who show you how it’s done through mentoring and joint-work programs. Like your colleagues in the network office, you have ready access to the resources of Northwestern Mutual, including:
• A coach who meets with you regularly to help evaluate and fine-tune your efforts for greatest results.
• Trusted financial specialists and advisors with technical know-how to help you create customized solutions for your clients.
• World-class Northwestern Mutual products and services including life insurance, disability income insurance and education funding options, as well as retirement planning, estate planning and investment options.
"My best experience as an intern was when my joint work partner, Mike, who did most of the talking on appointments, actually wanted me to do the appointment. It was a reflection of how much I had grown in my professional ability for the person who I learned everything from to sit quietly and let me show all I had learned."
RequirementsOnce you’ve completed our top-notch training program, you have the option of working full-time or part-time to get the real-world experience and rewards of the financial representative internship.
Most interns consider it their full-time job over the summer and expect to work at least 40 hours per week. If you continue while a full-time student, you could work 15-20 hours per week during the school year.
As a Northwestern Mutual intern, you will be part of the network office team, working side-by-side with financial representatives and professional office staff. You’ll see the independent and entrepreneurial spirit that our financial representatives share, and follow the same process they do for establishing your career.
"One key perk with this internship is you have opportunities to meet interns across the country and to learn how to model your practice after the most successful people in this company."
