Gone are the days of interns scraping by on minimum wage, and heralded in is the golden age of interns making bank. Well, only for a lucky few, that is. Glassdoor put together a list of the 25 highest-paying companies for interns, with monthly wages ranging from $4,653 up to $7,012.
If you estimate annual salaries from this list, some of these interns are making more than $75,000, which is more than the median household income — $53,046 — in the US. Most of the companies listed are based in San Francisco, which isn't a surprise, as many of them are tech companies. The top three are Palantir Technologies, VMware, and Twitter — all in tech. The nontech companies, which include ExxonMobil and Chevron, are in the energy sector. Read the list below, and prepare to weep.
