Ask former co-workers
Getting the inside scoop on the internal situation of your previous company, through former co-workers who you know and trust, is a great way of gauging your chances of getting your job back. If your position still has not been filled, you just might be able to get the job back. However, if it is the other way around, knowing that you may have to accept a ‘No’ for an answer is a good way to be prepared.
It is not always easy to talk to your former supervisor to get your old job back. All professionals out there will testify to the fact that establishing and maintaining a good relationship with your former boss is of utmost importance; if you manage to do this, you just might be in a position to ask for your old job back.
Do not call your former organization out of the blue and in a cold way. Be prepared, pick a suitable time to call the company, and speak politely. This will have a good impact on the person who you are talking to and should improve your chances of getting back to where you want to be.
In many businesses around the world, it is extremely hard to get back in once you are out. Unless you have a really good relationship with your previous boss, and the position you left is still open when you try and make a comeback, it is highly important for you to accept the fact that you may be rejected due to the competition in the field nowadays. There are many more people that are jobless, and the company may have found the perfect candidate.
