    Default Any ideas on how to word this?

    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?

    Not at all inappropriate! If u don't ask, u don't get! You might be just who they're looking for, but they just haven't thought about part timers. Ask away! If u don't, you'll always wonder.

    In the email, maybe suggest the HR person speak to your old boss or former colleagues about you? Someone still there who can vouch for you.

    Good luck!

    Why bit make an appt with the hr person so she can put a face to the name and see first hand how professional and suited to the work you are. She would e more likely to remember you and think of you when a job did pop up.
