How To Get Your Old Job Back To Get Benefit
Will the Company Rehire You?
Don’t presume that the company will hire you back even if they loved the job you did. Your position may have already been filled.
Be prepared to explain why you left,
and why you want to come back. Also, be prepared to show the company why it is advantageous for them to rehire you, and how you will show your commitment to staying this time around.
Before you leave, do everything you can to ensure you resigned on good terms.Leaving on the best terms possible will help you keep a foot in the door of the company and up your chances of getting rehired.
Stay Connected with Colleagues.
Keep in touch with your former colleagues. Connect with them on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+. Send an email once in a while to check on how they are doing.
Stay Connected to the Company.
In addition to keeping in touch with your former colleagues,
stay connected to the company.
Ask for Your Job.
If you decide you do want to go back to work for your former employer, you can request an in-person meeting or send a letter or email message asking for your job back.
What Else Can You Do?
Check on other jobs at the company. If your job has been filled, inquire about other openings you might be qualified for.
Be Prepared to Explain.
Be prepared to answer questions — lots of questions. Prepare answers to questions about why you quit, why you want your job back, and why the company should rehire you. You’ll need to be convincing and sell the company on giving you a second chance.
