The next time you see a 20-something programmer in a graphic T-shirt and wingtip shoes, consider the fact that they might be making over $100,000. Startup geniuses? Close, but undergraduate internships in the tech world sometimes actually pay that much.
Students earning college credit for work experience in the tech world don't always make $100,000, but most of them make more than the median salary for the U.S. Or, that's what we discovered from a tweet listing all internship offers in the tech field.

That's right, every undergraduate intern at these tech companies earns no less than $5,000 every month. If ever there was a time to encourage your kid to learn to program, this would be it.
In fact, you might want to consider this Christmas present to encourage kids to build and program their own computer.
