I am a software developer contractor for a certain company. This is my second time around with them with the same team. On both my times with the company I have got no feedback on whether they will extend my contract or end it. So the first time with the company when it got near the end I found a new position with a different company. And when I told them that I found a new position they were surprised that I was leaving and then told me they were planning on extending me.
Now on the second time around here I have talked to my manager about a extension or a full time position and he was non-committal on if I would be extended this time. I got a negative vibe about my situation....so I have been looking for a new position. I actually applied for a position in the same company and it happened to be under my manager's team. The recruiter I went through got back to me and said I wasn't able to apply for the position because they were trying to extend my contract. I am not sure if I believe that or not....
I have contacted the agency that I am working with and they have tried to get more details on if I will be extended or not. But they haven't gotten a single response back and it has been over a week.
Does anyone know what I should think about the whole situation? Does this happen alot to other people who are contractors as well?
