I'm a temp worker and finished my work a few months before deadline. Do I just chill now, or ask for more work?

Keep your work in the bank and release it incrementally between now and deadline and use that other time as suggested. If other work is available you may want to say you can do it as well but make it appear you’re multitasking and doing both. They will love that.

Yes I love this idea. You will come off great and hopefully won't get too much more work if you say you're still working on the first project.

Chill but make it look like you’re busy. Use your free time to apply to permanent roles or learn a skill. Only if there’s a clear opportunity for you to convert to a permanent time role at Amazon should you take on extra work. If they’ve said it’s really a temp job only treat it as such.

If you’ve double checked your work and it’s 100%, then I’d say chill but make it look like you’re still doing your work for the rest of the time. You don’t want to get let go too early. If you want to make a good impression, you can ask for more work.

Just like everyone said, chill lol No need to over-exert yourself. As soon as you do they will expect you to work at the same pace and do the same amount of work. Play your cards right. Hold off turning it in. Set a date that's a sweet spot and then just chill until you send your work in. As soon as you do make it a week earlier than due date and then ask for more work. It'll make you look good for sure.

Check your contract to see if there's a statement of work. Things can get wonky if you're contracted to work within a scope, and you exceed that.

Definitely chill and beef up your skills for a permanent role or line up some more contract work.
