depends on the job. i worked at wendys in highschool and i was pretty friendly with one of my managers. i told him i wanted to be employee of the month, i told him i really wanted to earn it, that i was very interested in being considered. i had already been taking a lot of extra hours to help pay for a trip, and i continued taking a ton of extra shifts. I also did my job well, and above and beyond my responsibilties. I think the reason I got it that month is because i told my manager i was interested in being considered.
but i know that isnt the way it works in all jobs
