    Question job interview question

    ok...here's the scenario - applied for a job about 1 1/2 yr ago....had a great interview. great feedback from the head of the interview committee *it was 6 people i interviewed with*

    didn't get the job went to someone w/my experience but in a university setting...corresponded w/the head of the committee for a bit afterwards because she wanted to see if there was something else avail for me

    saw the same position is available again, same committee head that i interviewed with.

    question - is it worth re-applying?? could it be an advantage that i had a positive interview then? or if i wasn't offered the job the first time, let it go? OR could it be a hellish job, if who they hired has already left???

    or maybe whoever they hired before wasn't capable of doing the job after all and was fired....
    I say go for a again, especially if its something that you really want......u do have an advantage over other applicants :)

    apply again, because there could be 100 different reasons why the other person left. Also reapplying shows your eagerness.

    e.g.:

    poor work habits, laziness, left for another job, wasn't the 'right fit' ....etc.

    I say apply again.

    Apply AGAIN! if you really want it...re-apply. wat do you have to lose? plus i'm sure the fact the you had a great interview the first time, and you show interest again will work to your benefit.

    good luck :)
