Quick one, I think. About a year ago, I interviewed for a job I really wanted. The facility was a long drive away and the employer suggested a phone interview; I agreed. The interview went well -- until it didn't. I was asked a question that I couldn't think of a good answer to, that got me very nervous and I bombed. It was obvious that I was crashing and burning and it seemed to me that the interviewers (there were two of them) were sympathetic, but as it was a structured interview, there was no flexibility in the script.
The job is being advertised again (or still, not sure which). Even though my working experiences have been minimal in the past year (2 weeks as a summer camp nurse, 2 months as a Mollen flu shot nurse), I actually had some great "learning experiences" and want to reapply. My question is, in my cover letter should I say I interviewed a year ago and would like another chance. Or should I just apply and hope they do not remember me? For what it's worth, I have a very unusual last name. (So unusual there's only 3 of us in the world, as far as I can tell.) The nursing manager is the same as last year.
What do you all think? Chances are they interview so many people they won't remember me. But if they do I expect they would just chuck my resume in the bin straightaway.
