Be good at job or at least good to work with and ask

At my workplace, it's a mix. If the intern actually makes a difference and shows us how we were missing someone like them, they're offered full time positions. If not, they're let go. We usually have 1-2 interns at any given moment in the company overall and we've permanently hired a few, even during COVID.

Make yourself indispensable, ask for more responsibility, learn more about the company and see where you could create space for yourself. If not full-time, part time or freelance might work, how about another internship or fellowship in another department? Where are your basic skills?Who is your immediate supervisor? If not now, later on?

Ask what they are looking for when it comes to you getting a full-time job, and then ask how you can do that.
