Can I sue a company for leading me on to believe that I will be employed?

I am currently an intern for a corporation and have been for over two years now. When enquired about the status of my employment the general manager responded by telling me “its getting processed now” “its going through the approval process now” “I’m pushing for this month”, “we are close”this has been going on since for 10 months. I am getting fed up and would like to seek legal advice. I feel like I am treated unfairly and taken advantage of. Also, this company prevented me from other options with much better pay than this.
