Fox 2 Job Shop - Robin Ankton of Robert Half International poses the following question:

LeBron James returning to the Cavaliers raises an important career question: would you ever return to a previous employer? 

As firms struggle to locate talent, some aggressively pursue their alumni to "boomerang" back to their earlier roles. What are the caveats for both hiring managers and employees as they consider such a move? How frequently does it happen? And how often is it a successful move?

Advice for job seekers coming back to a former employer:

1.         Keep an open mind

2.         Embrace change

3.         Implement new ideas learned while away

4.         Leverage your network

5.         Be a team player

Advice for the employer:

1.         Keep an open mind too!

2.         Be clear on expectations

3.         Embrace the lack of a learning curve

4.         Think about succession planning

5.         Be an advocate
