I joined the small company I work in now 4 months ago as a freelancer. My aim is to be a temporary or permanent employee there. Recently, one of my bosses left and my other boss took over his job responsibilities. But I can see that he is pressured with all of this. I think that he will be recruiting somebody to help him soon. I was thinking that I should let him know that I'm interested. I mean you can't get what you don't ask for, right? I'm intending to this right after holidays. What is the best way to approach my boss?
Note: we're in two different countries and I don't mind moving to the company's country.
Edit to add details: I want to know how to approach my boss for this position without making him feel like he is incompetent for doing the new tasks.
