Step Into a Top 10 Internship 

It all starts with a great internship. Join our award-winning team, as you get real-world experience with one of the most diverse, inclusive Fortune 100 companies in the US.

The Northwestern Mutual - Chicago North Shore internship program is a unique and rewarding experience designed to enhance your college education with real-world business experience.

Not your typical internship.

As a Northwestern Mutual intern, you will find that our college program is more about developing people than selling products. We value relationships and our desire to make a difference in the lives of others. 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 provide guidance and solutions that will have a positive impact on families and businesses for years to come.

Our internship program will help you:

  • Build the foundation in finance, insurance, and sales that will help you deliver excellent financial security to your clients.
  • Lay the foundation for a client base and a successful practice, with support from your office colleagues and the company. At Northwestern Mutual, you’ll work for yourself, but never by yourself.
  • Gain real-world experiences while earning performance-based compensation. Our attractive reimbursement program for professional studies can lead to a professional designation for interns who go full time.
