    I recently got a seasonal job for the holidays. I have been working hard there and feel like I've done a good job. My job is supposed to be complete around January, but I would like to keep it past then. What would be the correct way to approach a manager about this? I feel like they think highly of me, but I don't want to jump the gun on this and approach them about it to early, or even to late. Thanks for the help!

    If you have a good working relationship with the manager it couldn't hurt to have a conversation with him about making it a permanent position. If it's corporate run, the manager overseeing you may not have the authority to make the call and it may take him some time to get a response. You have nothing to lose by asking, it shows you like your position and the company. They may also make you reapply if they do have a permanent position open, again, depending on how the business is run.

    I think it will come down to whether they can support another full-time person. If they can't, worst case your job comes to an end as you expected when you originally took the position. I highly, highly doubt any manager would take your inquiry negatively.

    I don't think it could hurt to be too early. At least ask them to consider it.

    I would approach him and ask "How would you suggest I go about becoming a permanent employee." That way he knows you have interest, and he may be able to offer insight on what type of hiring practices the company has.
