    I am looking into post-junior year internships. I know some people accept full-time offers with their final internship company. Do you think this is very common across industries? If yes, what is a good way to pick a company to intern with after junior year? Any tips you might have for making offer decisions would be very helpful! Thank you.

    I’m currently pursuing an internship with the hopes that it turns into a full time position post-graduation as well! Based on my previous internship/co-op experiences I was able to determine what kind of work environment I wanted to be in, what kind of company culture I was looking for, and what types of tasks I could realistically see myself enjoying doing day in and day out! I also looked into company size, growth, flexibility, and location.  When applying to a bunch of internships this past semester, I not only researched them on their website, but asked friends and classmates that currently or previously worked there what they liked about working with a given company. I’m not certain that a post-junior year internship will always turn into a full-time offer, but a lot of companies do like you to have previous experience working with them before hiring you on full time!

    I think a lot of companies do prefer to hire students for full-time roles that they have previously hired for internships. However, I think it’s important not to limit your job search because you may have a full-time offer with a company after completing an internship. There might be better opportunities you could get if you continue to search for jobs after your internship.  Try to understand industry standards and make a judgment call.

    I know this was posted a while ago and you may have already made an internship decision by now, but I wanted to offer some comments. I personally will be returning full-time to the company that I interned with after junior year. I found that already knowing my team and manager before accepting a full-time position was invaluable. During your internship next summer I would highly recommend taking the time to get to know the people you are working with because it could be really helpful when you’re looking to make a full-time decision. Also, I know many people who accepted full-time positions with the companies they interned with after junior year, but I also don’t think its uncommon to accept an offer with a different company for full-time. Lots of companies value industrial engineers, so hopefully you will have options with whatever you choose to do!
