15 Highest Paying Internships in America for 2017

Gone are the days when interns were relegated to coffee runs and note taking. These days, interns at some of America’s most popular companies are responsible for high-level engineering, engaging marketing projects, and Q&A sessions with executives. Of course, there are fun activities like summer parties and intern class bonding trips.
But perhaps the biggest perk of some of America’s best internships is the pay. According to Glassdoor’s Local Pay Reports, the median annual salary for a full-time U.S. 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 (#1) to about $55,000 at Bank of America (#25), much higher than what the average full-time American worker earns. Whoa!
