About Northwestern Mutual – Eastern Pennsylvania

French writer, Antoine de Saint-Exupery once wrote, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

As achieving financial security becomes more complex for people, a few simple truths are becoming even more powerful: Relationships are built on trust. Our lives and businesses matter. And we’re much stronger together than we are apart. These beliefs launched our company over 160 years ago. Today they’re hardwired into our DNA and are just some of the reasons why people turn to Northwestern Mutual to help secure their financial futures.

Above all, we believe in doing what’s right for our clients. With every important decision, we ask ourselves this poignant question: “Is this in the best long-term interest of our clients?” It’s the primary reason we created a distinctive planning process and evolved from a life insurance company to a financial security company in recent decades. We knew having the solutions to meet all of our clients’ financial needs was the right thing to do.

Join our team in carrying on that tradition. As a financial representative intern, you’ll get real-world job experience as you discover a career with flexibility and rewards. Teamwork. Training. Hard work. Fun. It’s part of what has made the Northwestern Mutual internship program a Top Twenty-Five Internship for the past 23 years in a row and continues to keep us ranked #97th on the Fortune 100 List.
