    The word “internship” usually conjures up ideas like “unpaid” and “free labor,” but there are certain internships that are perhaps even better than real jobs.

    A University of California, Berkeley student recently compiled a list of all the top tech companies that pay their interns a handsome sum for choosing to gain work experience with them. Rodney Folz conducted a survey using responses from the computer science departments, current interns and other coding-focused Facebook groups and email contact lists. After generating the results he uploaded the list to his Twitter account.

    While the numbers have not been confirmed as accurate by the companies, Folz agreed to release the raw data he collected for the survey once the names have been anonymized.

    Teenage venture capitalist Tiffany Zhong tweeted a similar list of tech company internships back in 2014.
