Career Paths

At Northwestern Mutual - Lake Charles, we give more and expect more from our financial representatives.

Our Financial Representatives exemplify character, quality and diversity, and along with our staff and management team enthusiastically embrace the recruitment process and how it contributes to the growth and development of our community.

We know that building your own business is difficult without help. The Northwestern Mutual - Lake Charles management team is committed to building a cohesive unit of productive full-time financial representatives.

We believe a strong, supportive network office helps our financial representatives be successful and more importantly, helps clients achieve their goals. Education, recognition and compensation are at the heart of our organization. We value teamwork, camaraderie, and community service.

Supporting the development of our financial representatives helps strengthen Northwestern Mutual. We provide continuous opportunities for advancement through specialization and leadership training. Everyone’s career path is unique, so our independent financial representatives control the choices they make to help direct and further their careers.

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 or wealth management advisors of Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Company®.
