How can I write a letter to help me get a permanent job out of a contract one?
I have been on contract work for a company since May. My contract was up at the end of August, but was extended and is now scheduled to finish at the end of this month. The position is an entry level HR job and I have abaout 2 years of HR experience. I would like to write a letter that shows my appreciation for them having provided me with the work. I would like the letter to double as a way of showing my interest in staying on with the company (I know they can afford it) as a permanent employee. Any suggestions on what I could put into the letter would great. Websites with samples are great too. Thanks. Only legitimate helpful responses please. I know there is work I can do here to keep me busy. The company is rapidly expanding and is constantly creating new permanent jobs. So I know that there is room. I would like to do it face to face, but the person making the decision is in another country

Instead of a letter, go directly to the hiring manager and state your case. If the hiring manager is different from your immediate supervisor, ask your supervisor for a recommendation before you go to the meeting. A face-to-face meeting shows initiative and will get you a direct answer.
