I am a new grad, and I'm offered an interview for internship by one of my dream companies related to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
The reason why I applied for internship is that I'm going back to academia next Fall. My plan for this year is to get summer internship, and to go back to school for graduate studies.
However, I didn't expect to get an interview offer from my dream company, and this makes me feel uncertain about my career goals. If I work really hard and my internship ends with a full-time job offer (I wish), I would be happy to accept an offer and stay in the industry for a couple years before I go to graduate schools.
But if the interviewer asks what would be my plan upon the completion of internship, how should I properly answer this question? Should I not mention about graduate studies at all?
