I had an internship in a company last year over the summer, and asked my supervisor to return there for another internship, for which he agreed and said he would love to have me back to continue working on the work I did the previous year.
This internship is in a different city from where I live, and I intend to move there. Before I do my internship in Summer of 2018, I want to email the supervisor and ask if it would be possible to continue working after my summer internship is over, either as part time or full time. (given that by this point I would have completed 2 internships there)
I want to ask if I will be able to continue work there to support myself financially (also stating that I also want to work there afterwards because I love what I do there), or if I would have to find other work before my internship is over and get a head start on the job search.
Is this something that would be acceptable to ask at this point, or should I wait until I am actually working there before bringing it up?
