I am applying for a post in the place where I used to work previously. I was not an employee but posted there by a third party for 18 months.
Then I left work to figure things out for dd (sen related stuff) and then had ds. It's been 3 and a half years since I was there and that was my last assignment before leaving.
The CV has their projects listed obviously. I am wondering whether to also mention in the covering letter that I was with them and liked the work place, would like to work there again type of thing. Also, do I mention specifically that I've been away for 3 and a half years and what I did in that time.
Or do I go with bland, cv enclosed, hope you like it type of cover letter???
(I worked well there so hoping they will look up my managers there and get feedback.)
I would mention it on the cover letter, as otherwise they may think you did not realize it is the same company and just churned out an application. Say you enjoyed the work, and give a brief reason why you did not work the last few years, but now it is time to return, and would love an opportunity to work with this company again as you enjoyed it last time and know you can do the job.
same as QS, certainly worth mentioning that you were there thru xyz agency or whatever, who (managers, mentors etc)you worked with, what your role was and that you achieved bla bla and bla and enjoyed the work there. Yes I think that mentioning in a positive / skills acquired way (time management, multi-tasking ) about what you have done with the time in between would be a good idea too, then they are not left with gaps.
