Northwestern Mutual's internship program has been recognized as a Top 10 Internship by Vault Guide to Internships (2017 edition).

When you join our financial representative internship program, you'll be supported by a team of people in one of our local network offices who will:

  • Develop your networking and business relationship skills
  • Work with your school schedule-internships are available to full-time students either fulltime during the summer or part-time during the school year.
  • Help you build on your classroom learning and develop lifelong skills
  • Offer you the tools and the opportunity to try out or get a head start on a career as a financial representative

In our experience, one out of three former interns becomes a full-time financial representative following graduation. This internship will give you a solid foundation of business-building skills and knowledge for immediate and future career success. The confidence you develop, coupled with insight you have gained as a financial representative intern, can put you on the path toward a profitable and fulfilling future.
