I definitely agree that you can discuss with your recruiter, but be cautious and reiterate your interest in the internship. Some companies have processes for converting interns into specific positions upon completion of the internships, so your company may already have something in place to care for this. However, if the process is that you need to apply to openings online, the recruiter may also be able to guide you as to positions that would fit your background. Best of luck!
