Hi Confessions of the Professions family,
Think this could vibe well with your readers? I’ll be honest with you, I’d do just about anything to have had an internship like that during my college years. HA! How about you?
I really enjoyed browsing through some of your posts on this a.m. I also noticed that you happen to fancy the occasional visual and was hoping to sync up about a piece I think you’d like.
It’s widely known that Google and Facebook have some of the most coveted internships in the tech industry. That’s why I thought it’d be fun to put together a visual that pits these ground-breaking giants against each other (well, sort of). It features some super awesome company perks we would only dream of, super generous salaries, and other benefits that would almost make you want to quit your day job.

Google vs Facebook Internships
Internet Titans Google and Facebook have some of the most coveted internships in the tech industry. “The Social Network” already infamously documented the early days of Facebook, and now Google is setting for the upcoming comedy, “The Internship,” starring Vince Vaugn and Owen Wilson. All Hollywood spin aside, both digital giants offer the kind of internship benefits that even full-time employees envy.
