Many of us have been there, and some might right now be the newbie intern working 9-to-5, but only being paid peanuts!
According to Jobstreet and Glassdoor, Malaysian interns earn anywhere from RM300 to RM1,000 monthly.
Peanuts also more expensive.
But it seems like things are a fair bit better in the United States of America.
A team of economic research analysts at job-site Glassdoor in the U.S. have just released their list of the highest paying entry level jobs and internships there.
The lowest intern salary in Glassdor’s list makes $4,167 (RM17,433) a month. Double the median pay for fully employed people aged 20 to 24 years old.
Shockingly, at the top of the list is Facebook which is paying their interns as high as $90,000 (RM376,596) a year.
Good news for all those in the technology sector because 70% of the top 25 highest paying internships are at tech companies.
Second in line are the finance and consulting industry with Bank of America cracking the top 10 list.
Oh, and even Uber is listed!
