We offer college students the opportunity to test drive a career with Northwestern Mutual through our internship program (offered every semester). Recognized for 23 consecutive years, Vault Inc, 2019 named Northwestern Mutual’s Internship program one of "America’s Top Ten Internships." College students have the opportunity to get state licensed, gain valuable business experience and can earn an income that matches their ambition.
As college students, interns in the program generally work 10 to 20 hours per week during the school semester and/or full-time over breaks or summer developing their business- and client-building skills. In most ways, our interns follow the same process for establishing their careers as our Financial Representatives.
As you build your business, you will:
Meet With Clients - You'll set up appointments to discuss your clients' current financial situation.
Analyze the Client's Situation - After extensive fact-finding, you’ll uncover long-term goals that you will use to help determine your client’s needs.
Make Recommendations - After evaluating your client’s current situation and goals, you'll determine what products can help fill their needs and present appropriate solutions to your clients.
Provide Ongoing Service - You’ll continue to work with your clients beyond the close of the sale. Most financial representatives contact their clients twice per year to determine whether their needs have changed, and keep them aware of the resources available to them.
