Sample Letter to Ask for Job Back

Subject: Your Name

Dear Mr.Ms. LastName,

As you know, I recently started a new job at ABC company. To be honest, the position and the work environment aren't what I expected. Therefore, I am writing to inquire about the possibility of returning to work at XYZ company.

I sincerely regret my decision to resign and if I were to be rehired, I can assure you that I can offer a long-term commitment to the company.

If the company would considering rehiring me, I do understand that my job may have been filled. If so, are the other open positions I would be eligible to apply for?

Thank you in advance for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you and I'm available at your convenience for a conversation. I can be reached at 111-111-1234 or at your.name@gmail.com.

Best regards,
