about a year ago, i interviewed for a job at a publishing company. while i didn't get it, they sent back an e-mail saying that i was seriously considered for the position and a strong contender. a friend who works for the company told me that they are about to begin hiring for a similar position and that i should try for it again.
should i indicate in my cover letter that i interviewed with them previously?
i can't decide if it would remind them of the things they liked about me, or the reasons they decided not to hire me.
