Santamaria, Sergio


For my internship, I worked as a College Financial Representative. As a College Financial Representative, I essentially worked as a full-time financial representative, but without some of the certifications required to offer the full line of products offered by Northwestern Mutual. Throughout the internship, I went through the process of kickstarting my financial advising practice and growing my connections around the Northwest Arkansas and Tulsa areas. I gained experience setting and hosting meetings with potential clients, then creating personalized and customizable financial plans based on the information I received during the client's meeting. Every single meeting and financial plan were unique and offered multiple learning points for me to take away from, yet all followed a similar process when first creating the individualized financial plan. Also, I increased my knowledge of how important connections truly are in the real world and how to grow and cultivate those connections into mutually beneficial relationships.
