Said no to job offer but 6 months later want to say yes ?
6 months later she has a new boss and her current work position has deteriorated. Can she go back to that well? And how should she go about it?
Ty for any tips!

Sure the employer may turn her down but I don't see the harm in asking. I don't think people should refrain from taking action due to the possibility of rejection.

To formally ask, it may damage her reputation in the industry especially at an executive level position. However, it may be possible to put out causal feelers to see if the other position has been filled or what that other company has done since she rejected their offer. Maybe they are hurting and are re-thinking about the amount offered. Then she can always have a causal lunch or coffee with her former boss in order to 'touch base' but not an 'ask for employment' type of meeting. Let her former boss bring the topic up and see where it goes from there.

6 months ago? Wouldn't they have moved on and found someone by now?

That’s no being wishy washy, they offered her a position and could not agree to a key term in the contract (salary) so she turned it down. Sounds pretty decisive to me. However, now circumstances have changed.

Refusing a position that was offered to you, and then turning around months later with a change of mind is wishy washy, no matter the reason. I would not be able to have full trust on an employee like that. I don't know what your anecdote has to do with this.abc123yyz wrote: ↑May 11th, 2018 6:52 pmThat’s no being wishy washy, they offered her a position and could not agree to a key term in the contract (salary) so she turned it down.

Only wishy washy if they actually offered her the terms that were acceptable to her and got cold feet after. My current job they came in with a number I wasn’t ideally happy with, and I countered. They ended up accepting the counter, but if they did not accept the counter I wouldn’t have taken my current job.
