    Pros

    Sales based job with a focus on financial planning - great for young single entrepreneurs that can dedicate a lot of time without other commitments.

    Cons

    Sales/commissions - very fluctuating income and takes a while to establish a client base to provide revenue for a family.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    Very friendly people. Met recruiter at school career fair. Had 2 interviews, one was basically informational and telling me about the company. The second was some behavioral questions, as well as asking me to recommend some friends for the job and gave me a packet to fill regarding potential people for me to start my cold calling for. Got an offer for a 3rd interview, but had a better job lined up. Being outgoing is seriously enough to get hired here, don't buy that "top 10 internship" stuff. I only recommend this job as a last resort if your resume is lacking and you're desperate for some experience, but it's just sales.
