An Opportunity for Personal and Professional Development

Internships are about personal and professional development. They are meant to enhance your college education with real-life business experience that can help further your career. A Northwestern Mutual Internship is demanding yet rewarding. Your local Network office provides the tools, resources, and training necessary to help you discover and build your markets to develop a successful practice as a financial representative intern.

As full-time college students, interns in the Network generally work 15 to 20 hours per week developing business- and client-building skills. In most aspects, our interns follow the same process for establishing their careers as our financial representatives by:

  • Meeting with clients

  • Analyzing clients’ situations

  • Making recommendations

Our internship program is more about developing people than selling products. You will learn what it takes to be successful while sharpening your skills in communications and marketing to help build personal and professional self-confidence. You will also discover the rewards that come from helping others as you bring a full-service approach to your clients’ needs and provide guidance and solutions that will have a positive impact on families and businesses for years to come. Learn more about our internship program by watching the video, 'A Day in the Life' to further explore the challenging, real-world opportunity to experience a career in financial services.
