Interns at tech giants paid more than you think

If you think interns are paid a pittance to make tea and do the jobs no one else wants to do, then think again. Top technology interns can pocket an average of £3,400 per month, according to job ratings site Glassdoor.

The site shows research interns at Microsoft earning an average of £3,400 per month, but the technology giant is not the only one to offer such salaries for internships.

Being an intern software engineer at Google could bag you an average of £2,500 per month.

Talking to CNN Money, Scott Dobroski, corporate communications manager at Glassdoor, said: “Actually, it’s not that surprising that interns at a company like Google are getting paid so handsomely. The war for tech talent continues to rage on.”
