Dear Experts, Last fall I quit a job I held for 7 years. I liked the work I did but I felt it was time to move on, so when a job offer came up at another company I took it. I've been working at that company ever since. My problem is I hate my current job and I want my old job back. How can I make that happen? What should my strategy be? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: @ValueIntoWords Q#189 Agree w/other experts! Esp like the 'boomerang' language (via @AndyInNaples). If they consider rehiring u (-cont-) @ValueIntoWords Q#189 ... then be prepared to justify 'why' u would be committed to stay vs. having a roving eye. @beneubanks Q#189 "Man up" about your decision. Admit you were wrong and ask if you can return. It will hurt, but I think it's the best opp. @jtodonnell Q#189 Call old boss & share passion to return Ask what co's policy is. Some allow workers to return, some don't. @gradversity Q#189 Contact your old boss & candidly explain the situation. Many companies will rehire workers, if their motives are genuine @dawnbugni Q#189 Couldn't hurt to ask. Formulate solid value you want to bring back to org, but don't be surprised if no. @heatherhuhman Q#189 Many employers have a rule about not hiring back people who've left b/c they'll likely leave again. @AndyInNaples Q#189 "Boomerang" situations are quite common. CALL your former boss. Be honest, admit your "mistake." Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
