Northwestern Mutual Davenport office expands, adding 3 Interns

The Northwestern Mutual Eastern Iowa office in Davenport is bringing on three summer interns.

“Our goal is to provide college students an internship with the kind of experience and training they’ll see in the real world, challenging them to grow personally and professionally,” said Managing Partner Kalvin Grabau Keele of Northwestern.

Ranked as a Top 100 Internship program for 24 straight years, Northwestern Mutual provides students with hands-on experience that will prepare them for life after college, including: learning a comprehensive approach to financial planning, managing a business, and developing their own client base through the mentorship of experienced financial professionals.

“It’s about more than just providing students with a job for the summer. We want to equip them with skills and knowledge that they can continue to build on in the future,” said Davenport Managing Director Wade Harrington. “We are preparing them to start a career whether that is at another organization or at Northwestern Mutual.”

“The intern experience educates students on the financial planning process but just as importantly gets them emerged in our culture. As they learn from experienced professionals and engage in office events, we hope they can take away the skills they have gained into their future career whether that is here at Northwestern Mutual Eastern Iowa or their next endeavor,” said Mr. Grabau Keele.
