What does a typical day as a Northwestern Mutual Intern look like?









As full-time college students, interns in the Network typically work 15-20 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
  • Providing on-going service

As a Northwestern Mutual Intern, you will find that our college program is more about developing people than selling products.  We value relationships and our desire is to make a difference in the lives of others.  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.
