Companies that Pay Their Interns

Interns, listen up: You are not disposable— important, even. Who else are going to rearrange the documents, fetch our coffee, or sit around the office looking decorative?

But seriously, you are important. Some companies might think that the experience that you get from working with them for a while is rewarding enough, but there are some others that show their appreciation in the form of monetary reward. If this is not incentive enough for you to send your internship application to these companies, we don’t know what is. Read on to find out which names to look out for.


All the prestigious companies in FMCG field pay their interns: Bayer, Unilever, Mead Johnson, L’oreal, and P&G. Their pay are quite interesting, ranging from IDR 2.5 to 4 million. But we have a positively outlier, that is P&G, one of the biggest in the industry offering 6.7 million for their intern.

2. Consulting

From AC Nielsen to Markplus Insight, to Accenture, to SKHA Consulting, to BCG, when you’re an intern in one of these consulting companies, rejoice, for you will be well compensated. Depend on the company, you might get IDR 2.5 to 3 million. BCG for example, pays 7.7 million. If we may be blunt, that’s even more than some entry level salary for employees of various fields. We know it’s drooling, even i’m drooling. But first take a note, you have to commit yourself at BCG upon entering their internship, because you will be involved in learning how they conduct business as usual.

3. e-Commerce

Our diva today is e-Commerce. By climbing up and taking the spotlight in our eye, e-Commerce industry now become a preferred place to work for young and dynamic people. E-Commerce might be new, but it doesn’t mean that young companies like Bukalapak, Tokopedia, Blibli, Foodpanda, Zomato, and Zalora neglect their interns.

5. Auditing

FKS Multi Agro, tech giant Microsoft, HM Sampoerna, and if you’re interested in interning in the telecommunication and automotive business, Telkom and Astra Toyota.
