A Career with Northwestern Mutual

Successful financial representatives with Northwestern Mutual's Tampa office experience tremendous pride and satisfaction in building a practice from the ground up. Their success is not a factor of luck or chance; it's the result of a productive work ethic, strong relationship skills and a level of professionalism second to none. A mission of doing what's right for our clients is the thread that weaves together our organization.

The goal is not to simply sell products, but to discover clients' needs and help to meet them. That means taking the time to understand each person's financial situation, values and goals. You might conclude that no one person can be an expert in all financial matters. We agree. That's why we provide you and your clients with access to a nationwide network of representatives, advisors and specialists who will work with you to provide a full range of services.

We know that building your own business is difficult without help. As a financial representative with Northwestern Mutual, you will be in business for yourself, but not by yourself. Our Tampa office will provide you with support in your training and development, so you don't have to do it alone.

New representatives receive initial industry and sales training as well as mentoring and joint work programs for hands-on experience. They have access to on-line education resources for polishing skills and keeping up to date on industry information as well as exposure to opportunities for ongoing career education and advanced professional designations to increase their knowledge and reputation.

An Internship With a Future

You don't have to tell Kevin O'Connell the importance of a strong intern program. He's committed to recruiting 30 interns for this year, the same number of full-time representatives he plans to recruit. His passion for the internship program is surpassed only by his belief in the mission of the office and Northwestern Mutual's life insurance products.

Since 1967, Northwestern Mutual's Internship Program has provided over 20,000 students from all over the country an unmatched opportunity to learn more about themselves, the world of business and a financial services career.

Our internships provide a great chance for students to combine what they've learned in the classroom with a real-life look into what they could truly make of themselves. You'll have the chance to work in a real-world business environment and earn performance-based compensation.

Whether you know where your college education is taking you or you're still keeping your options open, you owe it to yourself to see if Northwestern Mutual's Internship program is right for you.

After completing the internship, the knowledge you have gained, coupled with the opportunity to work for the Tampa network office as a full-time Financial Representative, can lead you to a profitable and fulfilling future.

Northwestern Mutual recruits and actively participates in many career centers at the following colleges and universities in the surrounding Tampa area:

  • University of South Florida
  • University of Tampa
  • Florida State University
  • University of Florida
