Experience a Career
Being a Northwestern Mutual intern gives you a chance to test-drive a financial representative career while you’re still in college. That’s because you have access to the same training, resources and mentors provided to our award-winning sales force.
Like a new financial representative, you’ll develop a client base and work to build a successful practice. You can partner with more experienced financial representatives and expand your knowledge through joint work. You'll receive comprehensive sales training and participate in mentoring and joint work programs for hands-on experience.
But it’s your training in the Fastrack Development System that will give you the confidence and skills you need to be successful.
Fastrack Basics will help you start to build a foundation of knowledge in finance, insurance and sales cycle concepts, Northwestern Mutual's traditions and products, and how to manage your activity.
Checkpoints help ensure you are on track, and your local office mentors and coaches will be there to answer your questions as you progress.
During your first three weeks, Fastrack Sales School will teach you Northwestern Mutual's sales process, with an emphasis on obtaining favorable introductions and comprehensive fact finding. You’ll take necessary licensing exams and learn through experience to:
- Prospect, handle objections and effectively build relationships.
- Ask probing and challenging questions to uncover a prospective client's needs.
- Identify and understand a prospect's needs to help create solutions.
- Convey your conviction for our business and our needs-based analysis process.
As a Northwestern Mutual intern, you are trained as a professional, you work side-by-side with successful professionals, and you have the same opportunity to achieve as they do. But what about the strength and success of Northwestern Mutual?
Northwestern Mutual’s success is based on building relationships with clients by analyzing their needs and helping them meet their goals. This process reflects our belief that most people will experience many different financial needs and circumstances over a lifetime.
Our interns learn how these needs fit into Risk Management, Wealth Accumulation and Wealth Preservation and Distribution.
Take the next step toward an opportunity of a lifetime.
