One of the forms I'm filling out for a possible game programming internship requires that I fill out a desired salary field. The truth is that I'm more interested in the experience (I've never had such an opportunity previously) than any payment I might earn. Does anyone here have any suggestions as to what I should enter? I checked the referenced GamaSutra articles in the FAQ, and unless I missed something, they don't really apply to my situation. The web form alows for different ways to measure payment (salary, hourly/daily/weekly wage, etc.). Please mention any experience you have had in these matters when making suggestions.

In the UK, the intern's that I have know work for about 10-13k a year, which in US dollars works to around 17-21k.

If its the experience and not the money your interested in, I would flag about $18,000.

Good luck on your application :)

I don't know about game industry pay, but the going rate for an intern at MS is ~$4500 a month. Game industry might be half that though ;)

At my university, statistics shows that students can expect salaries from 1733.33 CAD to 3466.66 CAD (1,494.31 USD to 2,988.63 USD, using today's exchange rate 1:0.8621) a month with an average of about 2383,33 CAD (2054.68). They are also some exceptions, depending a lot from experience, how many credits you obtained in your degree and where you work (like the case of MS as previously stated).

JFF


EDIT : I might also add that we are usually considered well paid for interns... so you might not be able to get to the higher part of that range.

A little higher than that, actually.

I just got an intership with IBM. I'm getting paid $22.75/hour (USD).
It's not a game programming intership, but thought it might help.
