2 years ago, I started working in a company in the IT field. Honestly, everything worked well regarding the job and work environment. However, due to an unpredicted change in my family life, I had to relocate to somewhere far from the company. So, I had to leave the company after 4 months of working there. Despite that, my boss told me he is always open to hearing from me regarding working for them again.
Now, that my family life has become more stable and I'm looking for another job, I have the possibility to relocate to the company's town and work there again. Personally, I have that intention to continue the really promising path I started there. I also consider that if I start there again, I would be happy to be there at least for the next 2-3 years.
However, I do not know how the company and my boss would look at this proposal? I'm sure the first question would be "what if Bob leaves us again in another 4 months"? Also, I'm not sure if HRs would always recommend not to employ again the person who has left the company early.
So, I wonder if this situation has been experienced by others too and if there is a piece of professional advice on how to approach in such cases? Also, there is no position officially advertised by the company. But, I want to know if his team still wants to invest in such a position or not.
