    Yes, I would want to know.

    At least now she'll have the opportunity to decide what she wants to do about it whilst the job is still up for grabs.

    If it was me I'd want to know, she's been working hard at being noticed for the new role and I agree with harvs - she could quickly shoot off an application or get in contact with someone for that last ditch effort.

    Also some companies are bound to advertise some roles externally as due process - it may not be widely advertised as they have her in mind but just need to extend the pool a little bit to make sure??

    I read the OP as it would ruin her holiday meaning she would know and couldn't do anything about it. If she can apply then yes you should tell her (or at least you didn't ruin her holiday by telling her).

    This happened to me a few years back - the role I wanted and had expressed interest in when I knew it was coming up was advertised while I was on holidays. I was really grateful that other work colleagues had sent me texts to let me know, even though I wasn't able to do anything about it until I got back. Thankfully it had a long enough application period so I could still apply.

    I got that job, so as someone else said, they may be advertising now because they are obliged to, not because they don't want your friend in the role.

    I would tell her so that she is aware of what is taking place.

    It sounds like the company know exactly what they're doing and would have offered her the role if they wanted her in it.
    I wouldn't tell my friend as I personally would be really crushed about it if it were me and I'm assuming your friend would, too. That would definitely taint her holiday unnecessarily. She will no doubt find out when she gets back.

    BUT, having said that, if this were a very close friend of mine, I don't think I'd be able to hold back, simply for the fact that I'd actually be really peeved and hurt along with her and we'd need to vent about the company together
