You would think that landing an internship at a massive tech company, you would get paid very little, right? After all, they are doing you a favour by hiring you.
Although having Facebook and the likes on your CV is pretty impressive, according to jobs site Glassdoor, “Facebook are paying interns a median monthly pay of $8 000,” reports CNN.
That “median” implies that half the interns are earning more than that.
A casual R110 000 a month straight out of university? It’s what dreams are made of.
But Facebook isn’t the only big player to offer high salaries in an attempt to attract the best graduates out there – this is where the rest of the tech companies fall:
Microsoft, which pays interns a median $7,100 per month, took second place. Salesforce, Amazon, Apple, Yelp , Yahoo and Dell subsidiary VMware all made the top 10, offering a median monthly salary between $6,080 and $6,450. Google, at $6,000, was stuck at No. 11.
And if tech isn’t your thing, major financial institutions feature as well:
Investment management company BlackRock pays interns a median monthly salary of $5,400. Capital One interns earn a median $5,000 per month. And interns at Deutsche Bank, AIG and Bank of America all make a median monthly salary between $4,570 and $4,640.
Here’s a pretty graph to show you the highest paying internships in the States:
Imagine, you could be an intern all your life and live your days out in absolute luxury.
