WTF? Even the interns at Facebook are making big bucks — with some raking in almost $75,000.
Software engineering interns at the social networking site are paid a whopping $74,700 a year, according to salary information compiled by the website Business Insider.
Facebook may be paying interns more than other tech companies do in a bid to attract young engineers to a relatively newer company rather than a more established brand like Google, Business Insider said.
At least 10 job titles at Facebook make six figures, according to the ranking based on salary estimates from glassdoor.com.
At the top of the heap are senior software engineers, who bring in $132,503 for their expertise as coders who execute new ideas from founder Mark Zuckerberg and the site’s leaders. Not far behind are product managers at $130,143 and user interface engineers at $129,136.
