I'm currently a university student in my 3rd year of a 4 year degree. Last summer, the University offered paid work placements and I found myself working for a local software company for a small salary (it worked out at about minimum wage, perhaps a little under).
The placement went very well and at the end of the placement, the boss of the company expressed interest in having me back at some point for things such as holiday work.
Right now I'm trying to organise my life over next summer, for which I will need some income. I'd very much like to return to the company - but would it seem rude if I emailed the boss of the company requesting more work from him with a similar timeframe/pay to the university-organised placement? How might I go about sorting this out soon so I can have an answer either way and look for more work if necessary?
