    Interview

    Got referred by a friend and met the recruiter at the career fair. Very nice people and transparent throughout the whole process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Champaign, IL).

    Interview

    The entire contracting process is a long one. It took me 5 months to complete all the requirements. I met a recruiter at a college career fair and got a phone interview shortly afterward. After the second phone interview I had to take a personality quiz. Then I had a face to face interview where I was given a packet with 5 surveys and what was called Project 100. Another face to face interview followed after the completion of this. I then needed to take a life and health insurance class (about 15 hours over 2 days). The next step was to have my fingerprints scanned and sent in for a background check. Afterwards came traveling to a testing center to take the life and health insurance tests. Only after you pass these tests and pay the licensing fee are you contracted to start the internship.
