I think you should be optimistic. Just because you weren't right for the role a year ago doesn't mean you aren't right for the role now. They wouldn't waste your time going through the interview process again if there wasn't a possibility that they'll hire you. Good luck! Hopefully second time's the charm.

Thank you! You’re right, I just have to be optimistic!

It is definitely possible. In that year, you gained more work experience, confidence...They should see in their system you applied previously so if they gave you a call back they clearly think there's potential

The fact that you got a call when you reapplied is a good sign. I suspect that some companies keep a list of applicants who have applied in the past and shouldn't be considered in the future.

I agree - a lot of times it's right person, wrong role or the team had someone else in mind etc. I wouldn't overthink it too much, just go for it

Yup Is your experience different since you applied?

Sweet, thanks for the tip!
