What are the best conditions and best steps one can take to successfully apply again for a role in a company that previously laid you off or let you go (for whatever reason)?
I am asking because it might be possible that one got terminated because of specific reasons that may have improved in the meantime (e.g. gained new skills, more experience and achievements at other companies) - or maybe there is even a new manager?
I used to think this was not very easily possible, but recently an employee who was laid off two years ago returned to work as a contractor. I guess it is possible if not all bridges were burned during the original termination process?
