Have you ever applied for a position at a company you’ve been laid off from? Is that weird? Not that I’m at all considering it, but I’m just curious if anyone has actually done it... (And why??) 🧐

If you were laid off or a real reason - skip it. But if it was a reorganization or a ‘new leadership’ change then feel comfortable applying and call out the fact that you are a boomerang (don’t wait for the interview). Some cultures support it and others pass on it.

If the place has high turnover why not? Sometimes a lifer will call it out, but not always.

I did. Never got an answer. Even knowing that I won pitches and awards after I left, they don’t let me back in. Sad.

I was once contacted by a recruiter at an agency several years after they had laid me off, (told my position was eliminated — it wasn’t), telling me they think I’d be perfect for that same position 🤦‍♀️

I’m currently a project manager in the middle of a large project, but I feel unfulfilled in my work and honestly don’t have enough to do to fill even 20 hours a week. I probably could find more to do within my role outside of the project, but it’s not work that interests me. Would you recommend transitioning to a role that I might be more passionate about? Or wait until the project picks up more and invest more time in training the team?

I sincerely appreciate any insight y’all can bring 🥹
