About MassMutual

Founded in 1851, MassMutual ranked 77th in the Fortune 500 list as of June 15, 2017.  MassMutual provides financial products such as life insurance, disability income insurance, long term care insurance, annuities, retirement/401(k) plan services, wealth management, and financial planning. Experienced advisors aid clients in achieving their financial objectives by providing services tailored to their specific needs. Recent restructuring in the state of Michigan has created the MassMutual Great Lakes brand based out of Southfield, MI, with other prominent locations in Ann Arbor, Lansing, Troy, and Bay City.  Our firm’s network includes a total of 25 offices across the Great Lakes region.

The Program

Only 4 rising seniors will be selected for our prestigious “producer-centric” 10-week fall internship experience.  Our commitment is to create an environment that provides relevant career exposure to  the following areas:

  • Industry licensing (sponsored by the firm) and classroom instruction
  • Marketing & business planning best practices
  • Sales process and case design development
  • Client meetings

This will provide you an opportunity to experience what it takes for a financial professional to maintain their own practice.  Each intern will be assigned to a team of two established advisors as mentors.   Our most successful interns will be invited back for the spring, and be eligible for 1 of 10 summer associate positions being offered in 2018. 

Because of high demand, when positions for the fall experience have been filled, we will place qualified candidates on our waiting list and begin filling our 8 positions for the spring internship.
