I was offered a job the other day (verbally) but I was not provided with a lot of details and, since I am a minor, my dad is the one who has to email my employer about whether or not I am going to take this job or not.
After giving it some thought, I concluded that, since the school year is going to start in a couple of months, this job might affect my school so I most likely will not take it. But I do not want to miss this opportunity so I would like to ask my possible employer about the details of a job(most importantly, how many hours of work a day I have to put into this job and how many days a week). I thought of something along these lines:
Hello Dr. Doe,
I was wondering if I were to do this machine learning project, how many hours of work would I have to put into it per week and would I be able to work from home?
My main issues are the following:
I feel like this sounds like the employer is the one who really needs me and I sound like I am scarce.
I do not know how to end the e-mail. I am 14 so I do not really know what to write so it would not sound sort of weird.
What is the best way I could ask the questions I already wrote in a formal way and how could I end my email?
EDIT I live in Canada.
Thank you so much in advance!
