Converting Interns into Full-Time Employees
Companies hire their own interns. It's a fact. Doing an internship with a company is one of the most proficient ways to land a full-time position either at the internship's completion, or, at the time you are ready to enter the job market. You assimilate into the company's culture, build equity with its internal constituents, and gain familiarity with the way in which the organization operates. It makes for a shorter learning curve upon hiring and creates a seamless transition (and less expensive) for the employer.

If you’re an intern that returns for a second internship at the same company, nearly 90% of eligible returning interns received an offer of full-time employment, and nearly 90% of those accepted. (source: National Association of Colleges and Employer)
