It is not always you see global tech giants running after an employee, but for Eric Sanders, it seems to be a commonplace occurrence.
The software engineer in a Linkedln post shared an email Facebook management had sent him 3 months and 8 days after he quit working for them.
The Seatle resident in the United States was reacting to the saying that switching tech companies is bad for those in the tech sector.
Eric said he only spent 360 days at the social media giant organization.
In the email he posted, Facebook stated that they missed him and concluded by offering to see how he could open talks with them so he could return to working for them.
Eric also added that Microsoft and Amazon recruiters have been on his neck despite working at both organizations for more than two years.
His post has generated mixed reactions on the Linkedln platform.
Katherine Dumanoir said:
"As sad as it is, job hopping at the top tech companies and coming back later .... can sometimes be more lucrative than just staying. You become more valuable when you leave."
Chidiebere Chukwudi reacted:
"wow!!! Inspiring. Where are the FAANG recruiters, my dm(or mail) is open."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a man had quit his security job and dropped a 'personal' letter for his female boss.
The female boss named Felicia Opoku-Folitse took to Linkedln to share the personal letter her security man wrote her.
The unnamed security man, according to her, handed her the personal letter on the morning of Monday, February 22 just as she approached her office for the day's work.
She had, out of curiosity, opened the letter to find out he was quitting his security job to take on his academics.
