Back in with...the old?

Salvador Rodriguez, AZ Republic, Sept 26, 2010, recommends tagging up with your past employers.

Some people don’t like to go “backwards.” Some can’t—they are burned there.

If you don’t feel like this—it couldn’t hurt.

If you were let go for some bad reason, you may not get rehired. But it is was indeterminate, a layoff, you may be able to talk up how you have improved and all you have learned since.

But be sure you know how you felt when you left—and how they felt.

I recently noticed that an assistant I had hired had returned to my old place—so I was recontacting someone below me, or who had been 30 yrs ago.

She never responded.

So be warned—that can happen. It’s all a crapshoot.
