How to leverage Jr. internship for FT offers?

Hi, so I'm an upcoming senior who recently secured a banking offer at BB firm in NYC. I am really excited for the offer; however, I'd like to position myself where I can leverage the internship for better opportunities.

Is there any advice you'd give a senior on how to look for FT offers after an internship (assuming you don't get or accept a return offer)?

I've currently been doing the same thing when I looked for internships at BB. Using LinkedIn every day, contacting analysts in PE, VC, IB and arranging calls. I've also been fortunate enough to be contacted by other banks for FT roles.

Please let me know if this method is still effective for FT, or if i should try something else.

you're already contacted for FT at other banks before you even start the internship? How does this work?
