Intern Interview

Average Interview

Application

The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Melville, NY).

Interview

My interview process was very long but very fair. The process is an initial interview in person in their office with a recruiter, you are then moved on to the second round of interviews which are conducted in a group with other potential interns in their office once again, following this one is required to do a "homework" of gathering together 100 names of people who can become potential clients and you must conduct 7 interviews with people in the industry, this can be quite difficult for someone who doesn't know many people or who are intraverts, this is not the right job for you. Finally, you are brought back for a third and final time to present a slide show to the 4 heads of the internship program on why they should hire you and what skills you bring to the table. While the process is very tedious and time-consuming, overall it was a fairly easy process.
