I am working on-site on a short-term contract, 3 months. From the beginning of application my employer told me that this will be a short-term contract, but the position is with a large company with many perks though.
After struggling for about 6 months to get a desired job, I got this opportunity. Also, the role is not really what I was looking for.
Anyway, I accepted the offer and working with them from past 2 weeks. My contract is for 3 months, I would love to be in the same company but I do not want to continue working on the same position (extend the contract). The other reason I chose this position is because I thought I will manage to get desired role or similar within the same company.
Now, because of the short contract duration, I wondering how should I begin my new job search.
I have few questions:
Should I talk to my manager now or wait until 1 or 1.5 months left to apply within the same company? The company has full-time and contract positions.
Should I start searching for new opportunities outside the company without informing the manager from tomorrow onwards?
Does only a month of contract experience affect my job application if start market my resume?
*Right now, I am more interested in a full-time or long-term contract opportunity.
