Echoing what’s already been said here and chiming in with what I have observed based on my experience with a few organizations I’ve worked for who had robust internship programs. Inevitably, if the intern really demonstrates star quality — in terms of performance, cultural fit, curiosity, etc. — even if the department for which the intern is currently working doesn’t have a full-time role to fill, often the organization will not want to lose strong talent and will work to find another suitable internal opportunity. For example, one college intern started in a marketing for HR and when he graduated ended up in corporate marketing role for the same company.
