Application

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

Interview

First it was a 30min phone interview. Then I was offered to come to the office to speak with a director. At the end of the interview I was assigned a project to complete for them in a week. I then came back to the office with my project and I was told to expect a call from them in the next two days regardless of consideration. I was then called and offered the position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    More questions to see your personality type than anything. Wasn't very technical questions, they understand that you're a college kid with no experience, so don't try to portray yourself as this career ready business savvy 21 year old. Sell yourself, not what you're trying to be.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Three rounds of interviews, the first two being relatively informal. A large amount of time is spent trying to dissuade you from jumping into this job and weed out those not truly fit for the position, as it's not for everybody.
