A few months ago I had received several job offers, and decided to go with a 2 month contract role, while rejecting the other full-time/W2 roles.
Now that the contract is ending, I noticed that one of the companies I had received an offer from is hiring again for the same role. What is the proper way to politely ask to be considered for the role?
Should I reach out to the contact (manager who oversees the department/interviewed me) I have at the job or should I apply directly to the position online? If its the former, what would be a polite way to ask to be considered for the role?
