Accepting a job offer i've already turned down!

 
#1 Accepting a job offer i've already turned down!

I was offered a job at Detica recently and due to a number of reasons, I turned it down in favour for another. My reasons for not accepting it, where not necessarily to do with the job but circumstances which I would prefer not to go into at this stage. I have come to the conclusion, however, that I made a big mistake and my current job is not as I expected nor as was described for that matter.

What do you think my chances are of Detica reoffering me the job or will I have to reapply? bearing in mind they said if my situation changes perhaps I would consider them again, this may just be standard blurb though.

Any advice please would be greatly appreciated.

Err, why not ask them? Provided you turned the job down for sensible personal reasons and in good faith, and you were open and honest with them, and they still need someone, I don't see why not. Saves them hassle of recruiting someone else.

Neil to anon (#2)

I guess I'm just worried that they will question why I've been in another job for such a short period of time and then decided It's not for me. It may raise questions about my commitment. I think at the end of the day there's no harm in me trying but before I did I wanted to see if anyone was familiar with their Hr and recruitment process.

As a Detica bod provided you have got understandable reasons I would say go for it. A - you've got nothing to lose B - neither have we. May want to phone your 2nd interviewer first to sound things out rather than approach HR directly. Hope this helps ;-)

Neil to BZ (#4)

cheers BZ, I think I'll give it a bash. My impression was that they were very keen to take me on as the turnaround from submitting my CV to having a job offer was less than two weeks. I was in contact with the recruitment manager directly so I think I may drop him an email next week.
