The lucrative deals will come as welcome news to college students, who have been heavily impacted by the widespread unemployment due to the pandemic. 

During last summer, the unemployment rate among 16-to-24-year-old Americans reached 18.5 percent, about twice as high as the previous year before the virus forced businesses to shutter, stay-at-home orders to be issued and plunged millions out of work overnight. 

Less than half (47 percent) of people in that age group were in employment in July, the month when youth employment typically reaches its peak, after most students graduate from college. 

The previous year, this figure was significantly higher at 56 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

‘The past year presented unique challenges for college students and recent graduates trying to gain valuable internship experience, with many employers making the difficult decision to pause hiring or even cut internships,’ she said.  

With the economy showing signs of recovery, more opportunities are becoming available, she said.  

‘Fortunately, the labor market is seeing signs of recovery, presenting opportunities for workers early in their careers to not only find internships at top companies but also earn a hefty paycheck, especially in those industries where it’s notoriously difficult to hire, like tech and finance,’ said Stansell. 

‘Internship programs are critical tools for employers to fill their early talent pipelines and, in this age of remote work, many are willing to pay top dollar for interns, no matter where they are based.’ 

Stansell told that many of the internships on offer are still fully remote due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic, a move that also levels the ‘playing field’ for students living in different parts of the country. 

However, securing a place on one of the high-paid internships from the likes of Apple and Facebook is notoriously competitive.

At Facebook, for example, shortlisted applicants can expect to be put through multiple interviews with the entire process taking around a month.
