    Apple and Google offer interns more than a rewarding experience – they also pay really well.

    College students hired within the tech hub of Silicon Valley can make up to $8-10K a month, Business Insider reports.

    A survey conducted by a Berkeley student shows the facts: Google pays their interns $6,000 a month and Facebook pays $8,000, while Snapchat takes first place with high-paid interns at $10,000 a month.

    LinkedIn and Twitter don’t stay behind either. These Silicon Valley-based social media companies also pay really well – averaging up to $8,000.

    Assuming a full time summer internship goes for 40 hours a week, an intern working at Facebook can make up to $50 an hour.

    That, on top of $3,000 in benefits.
