Why do FB interns get to keep flying places?May 21, 2018
I know folks at FB that get to fly to off sites multiple times during their internship, not even just for the orientation. Does any other company do this?
- Airbnb Joe GebbiaThe budget per person depends on the team and size of team, but can be high enough to cover the flight.
- You don't travel for business? I guess I wouldn't be surprised given amazon but assumed you would just have to fly economy or something.
- Facebook / EnganonlizardThe why is because relationships with other sites matter, so the business trips are inherently justified. The fun ones are because good interns have a choice of where to go (maybe Amazon's don't, idk) and if FB was fun to intern at, they come back.
I sometimes get envious of those trips but then I remember college students are probably as broke as I was, and then my net worth delta, then I'm just happy for the little pischers
