Asking for a friend, she is in final semester of her Masters program, about to graduate in May. Do companies hire her as intern now as she can’t apply for full time roles. If so how to apply? Or any other recommendations on how to job search at this time?

      Many people graduating in May 2018 have been interviewing since fall 2017. She is a little late to the game but right now she needs to start applying for new grad roles.

    Does it matter where you get your masters when applying for internships? Like from an online unknown school vs a well known school online vs a well known on site school?

    I know people who have started as intern in the summer prior to their final year, and then have rolled into FTE that fall while concurrently completing their degrees. So you clearly do not need degree completion to land a new grad role. However, I don't know why any hiring manager would want to take the risk on having someone start months prior to graduation, unless that hiring manager had a preexisting relationship and knew what the new hire was capable of.

    Why can't she just apply now (for non-intern roles), and then have her official start date after graduation, as is the norm for university hires?

    May 2018? If so then no. She can only apply to non intern roles.
