A few years ago I gave up a great job... Part time, flexible hours, for an organization and cause I believe in... Why? I wanted to do some extended travel and then I wanted to find a full time "career". The job I resigned from was part time and paid as an independent contractor, so no benefits or anything. I did leave on good terms and even trained my replacement.
Well, fast forward to today. I traveled, tried the more extensive career track, got married, and had a baby. Now, I just saw that they are hiring for my old position again. My daughter is 17 months old, I get benefits from Dh's job, we are planning to stay put for quite awhile, and right now in my life this job would be perfect for me. Should I apply again? How can I explain myself to them and have them reconsider me?
