Highest-Paid Internships in America

Interns at These 25 Companies Earn More Than the Average American Worker

If you're lucky enough to score a crazy-high-paying internship at Facebook, you no longer get to complain about broke college student woes. In perhaps typical Silicon Valley fashion, the tech behemoth offers its interns a handsome median pay rate of $8,000 per month. It's enough to make any working stiff long to attempt the plot of The Internship — taking an internship as a grown-up at a tech company because the opportunity (and apparently the pay!) is so tremendous.

While Facebook tops the Glassdoor list of highest-paying internships in America, it's far from the only company to offer swanky pay and helpful perks. Both Apple and Yelp, for example, offer a median monthly pay of $6,400, while interns at other companies like Deutsche Bank and Adobe have mentioned the hands-on experience and access to senior employees as major highlights.

As Glassdoor points out, "The median annual salary for a full-time US worker is currently $51,350. However, if interns at these companies worked a full 12 months, their salaries would range from about $96,000 at Facebook (No. 1) to about $55,000 at Bank of America (No. 25), much higher than what the average full-time American worker earns." Keep scrolling to see the list of America's highest-paying internships and feel that slow, familiar burn of envy.
