I am an intern in cybersecurity. I have been doing an internship at a medium company (~70 people) for the last 4 months. I think that I have done an OK job so far and my colleagues and manager don't seem to think otherwise. Beside, every time my future was mentioned in a conversation, HR or my manager told me they wish I would stay at the company. The internship will end in august.
I have a meeting with my manager and HR in a few days. This meeting is taking place to determine my future at the company. I have been hired as an intern, to do a task, that will - I hope- be completed at the end of my internship. So the meeting will also be a way to determine what job I will have in the department I am currently working in. My question is:
How should I navigate assignments for my job role when transitioning to potential employee in a niche IT role?
What should I consider when discussing salary in transitioning to a permanent specialized role in IT from an internship?
