Many recruiting systems, like Google Hire, will keep notes on candidates. So if they see you’re in the system, they’ll probably read those notes. I’d recommend addressing it directly “I applied here before, but for XYZ reasons I think I’d be a better fit now."

You worked there? Yes, employers keep files on former employees, of course. If done properly, recruiters will check if you're "eligible" for rehire before they contact you. If you're not progressing in the interviews (but are being invited to interview), I guess the hiring managers liked another candidate better. No way of knowing exactly what the story is without knowing all of it though.

Yes, it was Havas. I’ve been interviewed 3 different times by 3 different recruiters. This last one, I told her my experience, said I would like to know if there seems to be an issue with me, I’ve grown tremendously and am not the same writer I was back then, etc, etc. PS Even after I said that, the recruiter didn’t even call me back.

I don't hear back from them either, their recruiters are like that.

Second - is there a way I could move my current 401K to another (precious) provider?
