CNBC Make It He talks to workplace experts about how to get your old job back.

1. Talk to someone who knows “the quality of your work”

Brick said the only advantage you have as a renegade employee is the current relationships you have.

“You know who you connect with. Depending on your relationship, you can ask them to hook up for coffee, or simply ask by email.”

“Maybe it’s a former boss or maybe someone in a different department you worked with on a cross-functional project.”

2. Explain why you are better than before

Harris advised having an “exploratory conversation about what’s going on in the organization” to make sure your reasons for leaving are addressed or resolved.

He added, “If it’s true, explain logically why you thought going back could make sense. You have to be clear in explaining why you left, and why going back would be different.”

If you want to get your old job back, it is critical that you explain how and why you are a better employee now, said Brad Harris, Professor of Management and Human Resources at HEC Paris.

said Harris, who conducted Research On the Boomerang staff.

However, he advised that timing plays an important role in this process.

“I will caution that sometimes they may need some time to work through their own feelings about bringing an ex-employee back, so in some cases you are planting a seed that may take a while to bear fruit.”

3. “Sow the seeds” before you leave

For Amy Zimmerman, Chief Personnel Officer at Relay Payments, the process of getting your old job back “starts before you leave.”

“When you decide to leave, treat that breakup and your actions that follow as supportive and appropriate as possible,” she said.

“It is important to have a strong relationship with several people in the company.”

If you know they will be happy to have you back, you will feel less likely to connect with you.

Plus, you also have to “plant the seed” you want to work with again, Zimmerman said.

“That way if you decide you want to go back, you have already laid the foundation.”

This will also help prevent the conversation from becoming awkward or “weird,” if you choose to return to your former workplace soon after you are away.
