Internships can be a gateway to high-paying jobs — though some of them pay well on their own.
To compete for the best talent, the biggest firms in tech, engineering, and finance offer interns salaries as high as $8,000 a month, according to Glassdoor’s annual report on internships and entry-level jobs. Glassdoor looked at base salaries reported by interns from March 2018 to February 2019.
Tech companies like Facebook, Uber, Google, and Salesforce pay interns the most, comprising 44% of the list. Finance and consulting firms like KPMG, Deloitte, and Goldman Sachs followed closely behind. Other industries, like aerospace, media, and biotech, were represented in the companies Boeing, Bloomberg LP, and Genentech.
“In today’s strong job market, it’s a great time for college students and recent graduates to enter the workforce and start their careers,” Glassdoor economic research analyst Amanda Stansell said in a release.
