Just got some news that I didn't get a job, naturally disappointed of course. It's a civil service job so quite in depth feedback. The feedback is really good, and it would appear I missed out because I lack direct experience in particular area. Now to the wwyd -- a similar job (not as senior)has come up with the same person who interviewed me and I am wandering whether I should ask if she thinks it is worth applying. Or just not bother as they didn't want me for senior role so why would they want me for. do i e mail her direct (all recruitmentelectronically) and ask outright if it is worth me applying?
I'd ask her! The worst thing that can happen is she says no, right? She might not suggest it to you herself, as she doesn't know if you're interested in a more junior (and presumably less well paid) position.
The only circumstances in which I might not ask would be if this was an internal position and I had to work with this person every day. But that's because I am a coward.
Thanks - am really going to think about how to word it - what I want to say is "am I a wrong fit and if so just be honest - if not pleeeeeeeese give me this job" but obviously not as pathetic and desperate
