    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    Meet a recruiter at a career fair and he almost immediately asked for my resume. He actually contacted me after the career fair and asked if I wanted to get together for an informal interview. I meet with him and we talked about the company and what the life of a intern would be. I got the feeling that it would be all sales based and not focused on finance. I did not pursue the internship anymore although I was invited to come back for another interview. They seemed to eager to hire people.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to join Northwestern Mutual from a friend and decided to apply. I notice that they hire by the numbers because Northwestern Mutual understands that there is a very low retention rate.
