Frequently when I'm coaching individuals who are in job transitions and looking for their next career opportunity I ask them if they've considered returning to a previous employer if there's an opportunity to do so. This often brings an incredulous look to their face as if to say, "Why would I ever do that?".

That being said, in some situations returning to a former employer could be a shrewd career move. To learn more about why and when this actually might make sense, watch below.
