The Internship Opportunity
The ambition of the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network Internship program has been less to sell our financial products than to develop people. As a Financial Representative College Intern, you will enjoy the benefit of working with The Bailey Financial Group where you'll receive outstanding guidance, superior support and quality expertise.

As full-time college students, interns generally work 15 to 20 hours per week developing business- and client-building skills. In most ways, our interns follow the same process for establishing their careers as our Financial Representatives.

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

·         Securities license, state licenses for life, health and accident insurance opportunities and a head start program for a career as a full-time Financial Representative

·         Compensation in the same manner as a full-time Financial Representative

·         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. 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 stronger business-building skills and a clearer sense of where they want their career to take them.

After completing the internship, the knowledge you have gained, coupled with the opportunity to work for The Bailey Financial Group as a full-time Financial Representative, can lead you to a profitable and fulfilling future.

Still uncertain? Visit Northwestern Mutual Financial Network Internships. Here you'll find videos from current interns who talk about their experience, a quick tour highlighting some of the career aspects, and a fun quiz, "Have You Got What It Takes?" to help you decide if you're suited for a financial representative internship.
