I am about to complete my summer job by the end of this week. But I could say that I worked really well and everyone seemed to appreciate it. I have not expressed that I would want an extension yet (In short, we all need jobs and cannot afford unemployement). But I was planning to talk to the manager about it in a decent and positive way that even if their answer is negative I would stay positive. But she knows that this is my last week and she has not asked me that if I want a continuation. Which to me is an assumption that they do not want me anymore? Should I still express it that if I can have an extension? If yes then how can I put up a request?
On a personal level, the depression of unemployment 'again' is quite unbearable but I am still trying to stay positive and professional and looking for more opportunities.
