Subject: Advice wanted...

Just over three months ago I was interviewed for a job with a start-up
company. The job sounded interesting (and the start-up looked reasonably
sound) and the company liked me and offered me the job. Unfortunately,
for various personal/professional reasons, I had to turn it down and
stayed with my current job.
Now I want to move on from my current job, and I've contacted various
agencies - one of which was the agency who got me the interview for the
start-up job. When I got back to them, they said that the start-up job
was still open, and did I want to re-apply for it.
This sounds like both a good idea (hey, they wanted me *last* time, and
we've already gone through the usual routine) and a bad idea: I turned
them down, and are they likely to forget that? What would you do?
I think I'd have to wonder why the job was still open! Perhaps it's because after talking with you, they never found another candidate as good! You spoiled 'em, Jane.
The fact is, there's still there three months later. If you still want it, I'd take it.
~ready to take anything, so maybe not a great judge.
