When we think of intern, we often think of coffee running, dirty jobs and less-than-perfect treatment. But what if that less-than-perfectly treated intern eventually becomes one of the most powerful figures in business?
To highlight 16 business titans who have done just that, we bring you this excellent infographic from our friends at Who Is Hosting This. From Bill Gates to Oprah Winfey, and from Steve Jobs to Ursula Burns, this graphic shows how the most powerful figures in business today went from intern to CEO.
The infographic also shows a day in the life of a typical intern, how some internships are now paying better than the annual salary made by the average American, and the perks of being intern for a company like Google.
So, interns… maybe it is time to upgrade your definition of “dream job”?
