BLUF: After turning down a job offer, is it promising to apply again to an orgaization? After how long? What is the best approach?
This spring, I was in the fortunate position of receiving exciting job offers from two great organizations (thanks, Career tools). I would have absolutely loved either offer.
Both organizations are fairly large one-city companies (200-400 employees), and I talked a fair amount with the CEOs of both companies, as well as many other staff members.
Ultimately, I turned down one of the job offers. I let them know by phone and by e-mail how much I appreciated their time and their offer and regretted not being able to join their team. I had gone through 8 rounds of interviews with this organization over the course of 3 months. I've stayed in touch with several members of the team there. Our companies collaborate closely and have a great working relationship.
I am happy with the job offer that I accepted, but I can see some situations in which I may be interested in making a change, and my top choice would certainly be the other company. How many years would I need to wait before resuming conversations with them?
