A business of your
own, backed by us.
Become a financial advisor or representative
As a Northwestern Mutual financial advisor or representative at the Oak Brook office, you'll build lasting relationships with your clients and help them live their lives to the fullest. And you'll be building your own business from the ground up with support from seasoned mentors and award‐winning training.
You're in charge
As a financial advisor or representative, you'll run your business, but have backing from Northwestern Mutual. The position is mostly commission-based, so you'll control how much you earn. If you decide to really get after it, there are also renewals and bonuses based on hitting sales goals.

We don't expect you to know everything on day one, or even have a business degree. You'll receive award‐winning training and partner with our industry experts to learn the ins and outs of financial planning. We'll help you to:
- Get off to a fast start
- Grow your career in finance through distinct learning paths
