Throw representatives at a wall and see who sticks. Solicit your family and friends. Cloaked in secrecy. Highly opaque. Antiquated methodologies. Sticky business.

Busy workplace with Independence
Working at Northwestern Mutual is like working on a team. There is a level of independence on completing the workload but you also work alongside a financial representative, sometimes multiple. I learned quite a bit about the importance of financial stability and steps to take to get there. I was shown how to analyze financial portfolios to best outfit clients with how they should invest their money for the long term. Management is solely based on the financial representative you work for but overall Northwestern Mutual has technology and tools that everyone uses throughout the company to assist their clients. The workplace culture was friendly and employees tend to collaborate with one another to make sure a financial portfolio is best suited for the client at hand. The hardest part of the job was balancing the workload between prospective investors, current investors, and veteran investors, all of which had different deadlines at different times of the year. The most enjoyable part of the job was attending the numerous conferences that helped advance everyone's career.

Northwestern offers the best outside sales training that I've ever seen, and I have been through several sales trainings with other companies. They used the One Card System when I was there, and I still use it to this day. Nice people, you make it what you want there.

Requires extreme drive and motivation to find success
Your book of business is built on reaching out to everyone you know in your own personal circle. Requires lots of dialing to schedule meetings and there is a great deal of accountability and checking-in/meetings early on.

Great internship to get started. You will learn a lot and expand your resume. It is fairly easy to get an interview so just reach out to their university relations coordinator.
