You got a summer internship congratulations!
But how do you turn it into a full time job?
Here is thing that if you do will practically guarantee you get the offer!!

Make sure you and your manager are on the same page.
Review your KPIs and make sure you are doing a great job
#3 Network with as many people as possible

Keep a record of each call and make sure you keep the conversation going.

You don’t need a title to be a leader.
Volunteer to help organize event for the interns and show your leadership skills
# 5 Ask for the full time job
Don’t be afraid to communicate with your manger and HR that you are looking to build a career with the organization.
