MILWAUKEE, Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vault has announced its latest rankings for the top 50 internships in America and Northwestern Mutual continues its year over year trend of being one of America's Top 25 internships overall, and one of the Top 10 internships in the financial services industry. Additionally, the company is one of the Top 10 internships for career development.
"Through Northwestern Mutual's financial advisor internship, college students develop critical business and leadership skills while helping people achieve their financial goals. Our interns learn to be comfortable outside of their comfort zone, which results in them growing both personally and professionally, even after the program," said Michael Van Grinsven, director at Northwestern Mutual.
The valuable impact is apparent: 93% of interns in the past 50 years would recommend the experience, and many of the company's most successful financial advisors--as well as more than half of those leading its offices around the country--are former interns.
Vault.com provides in-depth intelligence on what it's like to work in an industry, company or profession. Vault's editors surveyed more than 13,000 current and former interns and educators, and evaluated 122 internship programs to select the programs they feel provide the best all-around experience. Many factors are considered, including quality of life, compensation and benefits, the interview process, career development, full-time employment prospects and diversity.
