I'm currently working as an intern as a software developer working on a new application for the company. The scope of the project is very large and I have barely scratched the surface in the short time I've been here. I have approximately 1 month before more contract will end.
I'd like to express further interest to my supervisor and ask him if I can remain employed on a part time basis once my internship contract finishes.
What is the best way to go about asking? I don't want to come across too forceful or desperate, and want to ask respectfully without overstepping any boundaries that there might be.
Also, when would be the best time to ask? Right now? Or should I wait until closer to my end date?
