I joined a new job in December (outsourced work). The job is nice enough; close to home, newish technology, okay-ish team etc.
One of my colleagues (quite a bit my senior) was discussing with me how the client decided to extend our contract. Apparently which was up-till March. Turns out that my manager (the one who has been working on this project) required 2 more resources till March and I got hired for it(I had other offers). The other person had just paused their other project.
Now I am currently on this job and I don't know how long this extension is suppose to last. Not to mention, I don't know if I will be even told if my contract (client side) is expiring. My contact mentions that I cannot be removed w/o a 3 month notice (add the fact that the company tends to keep people on the bench for 4-5 months), I have ample time, but I am not exactly willing to sit on the bench for an extended period.
There is always the chance I'll be moved to a different project, but my expertise is in Qt something not used extensively here. I am just wondering if I should ask my manager regarding the same.
P.S. My manager took my interview, so he could have always told me about the short contract.
