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?

- Microsoft algonI 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?
