After a long day at work, sometimes all you want to do is sit on the couch, eat a bag of chips, and zone out watching television. The thought of attending a networking event seems so daunting. Not only do you have to give up free time, but you also may have to talk with strangers.

Have you been stumped on how to explain why you left your last job during an interview? In today's episode, J.T. O'Donnell shares her advice on how to correctly answer this question without sounding overly negative.

Not sure how to get rehired at your former employer? Have you tried applying to jobs at the company with no success? People go back to their old companies all of the time. However, knowing how to do it effectively will save you time and potential frustration. Before you do anything, you need to call the HR department at this company and ask if you’re even eligible for rehire. They will tell you whether or not it’s worth applying based on your file. If they tell you that you’re eligible, ask about the best way to be considered for future roles. This will help you figure out the best strategy when it comes to applying for opportunities at this company. Then, try reaching out to colleagues to explain that you checked with HR so they know they have permission to speak with you. This will make it easier for you to get back into the company and reconnect with your former colleagues.
