Is it OK to contact people from an old job interview and ask if a job is still available? Last time I withdrew my application after the interview and before results were announced. I was from a different country and had some family issues but I withdrew with the message that I am not so interested in that project.
I noted that some positions remain unfilled for longer periods of time (several month to more than one year), because they cannot hire the right person, I suppose. In this case the time past is more than one year.
Is it a good idea to contact the main member of the selection comittee (project leader) and ask directly if that particular job is still available? For exmple, maybe they were not able to fill the position, or the hired person left etc.
