Not Your Typical Internship 

At Northwestern Mutual we believe the only way for students to have a successful internship is by experiencing hands-on training and mentoring as well as developing relationships with our advisors.

College financial representatives will gain real-life experiences while earning performance-based compensation. Our attractive reimbursement program for professional studies can lead to a professional designation for interns who go full time.

Our training program will help you:

  • Receive financial planning training centered on growing your knowledge
  • Develop your skills in networking and business relationships
  • Be mentored and coached by our designated College Unit Captains and College Unit Directors
  • Join in on fun company outings and community service initiatives

Still Not Sure? Hear It Straight From The Interns Themselves

Northwestern Mutual has given me more opportunities to grow, develop, and learn than I could have imagined possible from a summer internship. Being given the freedom to run my own business and create my own future with the incredible support from everyone here is an experience I couldn’t have received anywhere else. The knowledge and experience I’ve gained throughout my time as an intern are things that I will take with me in the future no matter where I end up.
