I need to first define what an internship is.
An internship can be defined as the period of time that someone works for free in order to gain practical knowledge and skills. Internships are usually unpaid and are not a form of employment, although some may have educational benefits.
Salary for an internship depends on the industry or field where you work and also on your academic background. If you are looking for a summer job or any type of job in general, then there is no fixed salary that one should expect from it. Salaries vary depending on location and other factors like the company’s financial status, level of expertise required by their employees, etc.
Internships are important because they help you understand the industry that you want to enter. The best way to find out about a company is by reading reviews on Glassdoor, CareerBuilder, and Indeed.
According to my research for internships in the United States, I found the average salary for interns was $27,000 as of July 2017. If your internship will be with a small business or non-profit organization then expect to make less than this amount.
This answer might not answer your question completely but it should give you an idea of what you can expect if you are looking for an internship in the United States.
A good salary for an internship is between $20,000 and $25,000.
There are a lot of internships that pay less than this amount but you have to remember that the work will be unpaid.
It is also important to know that some internships do not pay at all. However, if you do an internship which pays well, then it can be a great way to get your foot in the door. It will help you decide whether or not you want to pursue further education and training opportunities as well as being able to develop valuable skills and contacts within your industry.
