Hi all,

I had to decline an offer a year ago due to pay and having a detail assignment I needed to finish. A year later, I am able to take the role but I have to ask the hiring manager if they have any vacancies again. Any suggestions or advice?

I was in a similar situation once, contacted the HR office and all they said was wait for another announcement to open up. I suspect you might get a similar response.

I once declined a position due to personal reasons. A few weeks later my situation changed, and I emailed the hiring official to let them know I would be interested in the position when it posted again. They hadn’t filled it yet and I was selected non-competitively. If you interested there is no harm and reaching out to express interest. Worse case, they tell you to pound sand.
The excuse of, "I read it on FederalSoup..." won't work. Please do your due diligence.
