Intern Stories

Chad D. McKinney

How did you hear about the internship and why did you choose to do it?

I heard about it through the College of Business, I received an email that they were looking for interns and I replied, got an interview, and here I am. I chose it because who in their right mindset coming out of college would turn down a top ten internship if the opportunity was given??

How long were you an intern? How did you balance it with school?

I interned the summer and fall program. Balancing it with 18 credits of school, I put everything into my schedule and diligently stuck with it. I didn’t have class Fridays so that was my “working” day.

What aspects of the internship grew you the most/ were your favorite/ still use today?

Every aspect puts a person out of their comfort zone, especially dialing. All you have to do is pick up the phone and have an adult conversation with the person on the other end. I look at each dial as handing the person a gift to receive my call because I am looking out for their family, not wanting their money like most other companies industry-wide. Factfinding is definitely my favorite aspect of what we do because it allows you have a have a very structured conversation with people, and then reassure them you can solve their problems with high quality solutions.

Why should college students today do the internship? What should they expect to gain from it? Advice for prospects?

Because there is not another company inside and out that will treat you like gold. From in network offices clear back in Milwaukee, Northwestern Mutual has everything you could ask for and then some. Expect to gain real world experience. Rather than getting coffee and making copies for your “boss”, you have control of your own destiny here. If the opportunity presents itself for you, do not ask any questions, simply say where do I sign?

How many years were you in each position you have had with the company to get where you are today? (positions and promotions)

I was an intern for a year and appointed Team Captain as part of that, and now am a full time rep.

What is your favorite part about your job now?

For me, this isn’t a job. It’s not my job to implement solutions for my clients, it is my job to help get them to their goals and aspirations through solutions I present. My favorite part is sharing with prospective clients what they will get out of their money with Northwestern Mutual backing it up.


Brian D. Campbell

How did you hear about the internship and why did you choose to do it?

I attended a career fair at CSU. I thought it was a bank or something. Even after attending a brief info session, I was a little confused on what the company did. Now I am forever grateful that Northwestern Mutual found me as this was never really on my radar while in school.

How long were you an intern? How did you balance it with school?

I started my internship in the summer of 2006 and continued the program through my senior year of college at CSU. I joined on a full-time basis upon graduation in May of 2007. Summer was a great experience as I enjoyed treating this as a full-time career. Balancing the internship with school was a challenge, but it was very helpful to have the momentum from the summer to carry me into the fall semester.

What aspects of the internship grew you the most/ were your favorite/ still use today?

I grew more professionally participating in this internship than any other experience at my time in CSU. For much of my life prior to the internship, most things came fairly easy to me whether it was school or athletics, etc. This internship was the first thing I had done that truly challenged me to grow and have courage outside of my comfort zone. I believe it was the challenging nature of this career that I found most attractive in determining whether or not to make this my career when leaving college.To this date, this is still the most challenging and rewarding thing I have participated in.

Why should college students today do the internship? What should they expect to gain from it? Advice for prospects?

College often is great at introducing you to the concepts of business, but it fails to give you the experience of learning how to put them in practice. An example of this was in the Financial Planning Concentration of the College of Business at CSU. I learned how to go about crafting financial plans and the concepts that are used,however, nowhere in my course of study was I ever taught how to go about efficiently and effectively building a client base to actually plan for. The concepts that college reps learn in growing their own client base are translatable into any business application. I have great relationships with former interns that chose not to pursue this as their career coming out of school, but invariably they state how they are amazed by how much of their experience at Northwestern prepared them for their current career.

How many years were you in each position you have had with the company to get where you are today? (positions and promotions)

I was an intern for 1 year, Financial Representative for 3 years, College Unit Director and Financial Advisor for 3 years, and now a Recruiting Field Director and Financial Advisor.

What is your favorite part about your job now?

I love what I do because of the legacy that I am able to help create. I feel that I am a part of something bigger than myself. This legacy is two-fold. First,I am creating a legacy with my clients by helping them protect, grow, and transition wealth that will last for many generation after we are gone.The second is that my personal legacy for me will be my family, and specifically my children. In this career, I never feel like I have to sacrifice time with my family to be successful, and vice versa. My work allows me to provide all of the time and resources for my family that I desire to give to them. Once again, although this was never on my radar as I was going through college, I consider myself truly blessed that Northwestern Mutual found me.
