It's officially intern season. It's that time of year where countless college students and young people around the country scramble to secure internships for the summer and beyond

However, even the best internships end, eventually. That's why it's great to find a role that at least has the possibility of turning into a full-time gig.

LinkedIn recently analyzed user data and job postings to figure out which fields tend to see internships turn into job offers, measured by retention rates at individual companies. LinkedIn members who hold current full-time positions in organizations where they previously interned were counted as "retained hires." Those retained hires were then broken down based on industry.

Here are the ten industries where an internship is most likely to lead to something more permanent, along with a selection of companies that are currently hiring:
