Internships at Meta Platforms Inc., the Facebook and Instagram owner, are coveted for their selectivity, high compensation, lavish perks -- and most of all, the potential job offer waiting at the end of the summer. This year, that’s more elusive.
Meta told interns via email in early July that it would delay deciding whether to hire them, giving the company extra time to assess staffing needs, according to a spokesperson. It’s so far the most prestigious program to change or cancel plans to offer interns full-time jobs, but it’s not the last. Twitter Inc. also said it would be delaying hires, as did a number of startups.
