Meet Ian Park, former Intern and current Financial Representative:

"I was introduced to Northwestern Mutual by my hurdle coach, Gary Spezia. He called me out of the blue one day and told me that he was going to give my resume to Brian McClure, a previous academic advisee of his and the Managing Partner of Northwestern Mutual in Champaign.

For me, the biggest takeaway from the internship was being introduced to this noble profession.

I decided to stay as a full-time representative with Northwestern Mutual when I started studying for my CFP® certification and the textbooks were espousing the exact same principals propagated in the phenomenal training and development program at Northwestern Mutual. In my opinion, Northwestern Mutual's training aligns perfectly with the Board of Certified Financial Planners and their education.

This industry and company have allowed me to impact generations to come by building trust in relationships through being a trusted advisor."
