An Internship With a Future

Northwestern Mutual's Top 10 Internship Program *

Internships are about personal and professional development. They are meant to enhance your college education with real-life business experience that can help further your career. A Northwestern Mutual Internship is demanding yet rewarding. Here at Northwestern Mutual-Louisiana and Mississippi, we provide you with the tools, resources and training necessary to help you discover and build your markets to develop a successful practice as a financial representative intern.

As full-time college students, interns in the Network generally work 15 to 20 hours per week developing business and client-building skills. In most aspects, our interns follow the same process for establishing their careers as our financial representatives by:

  • Meeting with clients
  • Analyzing clients' situations
  • Making recommendations
  • Providing on-going service

Our internship program is more about developing people than selling products. You will learn what it takes to be successful, while sharpening your skills in communications and marketing to help build personal and professional self-confidence. You will also discover the rewards that come from helping others as you bring a full-service approach to your clients' needs and providence guidance and solutions that will have a positive impact on families and businesses for years to come.

The Internship Opportunity

Our internship offers you invaluable business experience that you will take with you far into your career. But that's just the start of the impact this can have on your future and your present. Consider these benefits:

  • Practical guidance in your career selection process
  • The chance to develop your networking and business relationship skills
  • Flexible work schedule
  • State licenses for life, health and accident insurance
  • Securities license opportunities and a head start program for a career as a full-time Financial Representative
  • Performance-based compensation
  • Actual business experience for your resume
  • Test drive the Financial Representative career

Regardless of what you do after graduation, you'll have a foundation of skills and knowledge to build your career upon. In our experience, one out of three former interns becomes a full-time Financial Representative upon graduation. These graduates have built a solid foundation for immediate and future career success.

The two-thirds who choose other career paths benefit as well. They launch their career with strong business-building skills and a clear sense of where they want their career to take them.

Our values of growth, integrity, professionalism, and passion give college students the opportunity to learn how to effectively operate in the professional world while having fun at the same time. Upon completion of the Internship, participants are on the fast track to a fulfilling future, both at Northwestern Mutual and beyond.

If you are interested in an internship with real work experience, or are a college graduate who is ready to be your own boss, be compensated for your hard work, determination, commitment, energy, and drive, and make a positive impact on people’s lives everyday then turn your dreams into reality and contact Melissa Overholt at 504-831-8146 to learn more about this amazing opportunity.
