Interns today have a pretty rough go of it— most are serving longer terms, working longer hours and taking on more responsibilities than in the past, all while getting paid either next to nothing or exactly nothing.
But there are internships, and then there are internships.
If you happen to be interning as a developer/engineer at a booming tech company like Google, for instance, you can expect to pull in a cool $6,874 per month, according to data published today by Business Insider. That comfortably places Google's greenhorns in a tax bracket that would inspire envy in most middle-aged adults.
Other Silicon Valley companies offering golden internships include Twitter and Facebook, who pay their summer interns $6,539 and $6,229 per month, respectively.
That sound you're hearing is millennials across the country dusting off grad school applications.
