Career Paths

We understand that the best way to ensure the sustained growth of the Northwestern Mutual is to offer continuous opportunities for professional development. This allows our financial representatives to move forward on their career paths through specialization and/or leadership training.

Specialization - The opportunity to specialize in market niches such as disability income, long-term care, annuities and investments. Representatives may also choose to become financial advisors of Northwestern Mutual Investment Services, LLC or wealth management advisors of Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Company®.

Leadership - The opportunity for career advancement through the recruitment, development and retention of fellow representatives by opening new offices, strengthening existing ones, and supplying the overall structure and support to maintain and grow the Network. A representative can maintain his/her own practice while helping other representatives build new ones. Leadership opportunities include, but are not limited to:

  • Leadership through Education, Achievement & Development Program (L.E.A.D.): Provides access to an exclusive training curriculum that will help representatives develop the skills needed to take on a leadership role within their network office.
  • College Unit Director (CUD): Leads a group of energized college interns. Read more about our top-rated internship program.
