Unsurprisingly, internships at major tech companies are among the most lucrative.
Facebook (Tech30) came out on top with a median monthly pay of $8,000, according to Glassdoor. That would make for an annual salary of $96,000 (and keep in mind, median salary means half of interns are making more than that amount).”,
