    3 step process, pretty straight forward, Got the internship and accepted. Room to be extremely successful if you set your mind to it.

    The interview was very laid back and simple. Most of the questions were easy and more behavioral based. They ask questions about your extended network of potential clients. The interview takes place at the NWM office, and if you're accepted they send you a project 100 assignment which makes you fill out prospective information about your family and friends. Second interview is after that and pretty similar.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    I was approached at an internship fair by a recruiter. Then had an interview with the recruiter I had met. It was very conversation based and the environment seemed very welcoming. From there, I was asked to complete a series of interviews about various peoples' financial information that I was supposed to present to a board of people.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a call a few days later probing my interest in the position. Ended up some what knowing the recruiter. Asked to do a few personality/job fit questionnaires. After completing this portion, got a call a few days later for a more in depth interview. Asked if I would commit to an in person interview with a HR manager, turned it down as I had come across other opportunities and was not that interested in commission based pay.
