More than half of the 25 most richly rewarding U.S.-based internships are in the technology industry, according to Glassdoor. The ranking was based on salary reports from March 2022 to March 2023 by current and former U.S.-based interns on the platform.

Fintech firm Stripe and video game developer Roblox topped the list with an average salary of more than $9,000 a month for the temporary, entry-level gigs, which mostly go to college students and recent graduates. That would translate to an annual salary of about $108,000.

Nvidia is third, with an average monthly salary of $8,280 for interns, followed by Coinbase ($8,206), and Meta ($8,160).

"While the current labor market has cast a shadow over many companies' summer internship programs, this report is a reminder that many companies do pay interns, and some pay quite competitively," said Daniel Zhao, Glassdoor's lead economist.
