I asked my manager when I want to extend my contract to give me more tasks and responsibilities as it is going to improve my skills , but he replied I dont have to ask for more and as I am a beginner (1.5 years) and he said to me that people my age in the company have already 8 years of experience so I should not ask for more and just "fly"through the process.
All I asked is do more work and given my studies,skills and my motivation , I guess performance cannot be judged only by how long you are in a company ? am I right ? I felt bad for a while , now I'm confused and I don't know what to do. it is related to software engineering so any advices or comments are welcome
