I have been looking for a job for a long time. I have applied for lots of jobs but not even 1 call back I have seen jobs from my last employer advertised on job websites a few times, but all the positions are full time which I can't do. I was thinking of emailing the person listed on the position just to say that I am looking for work, that I really enjoyed my time with the company and that I achieved many things while I was there (she started after I left). And that if a position was to come available could she please keep me in mind for it. Is that really inappropriate to do? How would I word it to sound professional and not like I am begging for a job?
