    One of the best ways to turn an internship into a paid position – at the same company – is to find out if there are hiring plans or a need for marketing roles in the near future. If there’s a certain budget set for staff, marketing, etc. then it’s hard for an employer to suddenly create a new role, even if you (as an intern) are excellent.

    One way to find out what the staffing and budgeting plans are is to ask “I love working here! Are there any plans to create a full-time position for what I’m doing in the near future? Or are there places you know internally that can use my talents?” That sends a clear signal that you’re interested and it plants a seed, in your manager’s mind, so that they may contact you if there’s an opportunity.
