Internships. Chances are that if you’ve picked a particularly competitive major, you’ve almost guaranteed that you’ll spend some time as one. Your tenure as an intern will likely be composed of thankless 18-hour days full of frivolous tasks, and all for very little respect and even less pay. But while putting in a few months as an unpaid intern can pay off in dividends despite the lack of short-term payoff, you don’t always have to live spend your days as an intern living off of ramen; there are still plenty of paid internships out there, if you can get them.

Glassdoor, a website that lets anonymous users post info about corporations and companies, has listed the 20 best paid internships in the world based on the information provided by former and current interns themselves. Not only are these positions considered the most enjoyable, but the pay scale for some, such as list-topper Google, are actually more than the median wage in the U.S. at $70,000 annually.
