At the moment, Flink does not support the calculation of intermediate
results from which you can continue your computation. When you execute jobs
which share parts of its job graph, then they are recomputed. When your job
contains operators with non-deterministic output, then there is no
guarantee that the shared job graph parts produce the same results.

What you can do is to execute the two jobs in parallel so that they share
the input of the non-deterministic operator. Alternatively, you can persist
the data set after your non-deterministic operator by writing it manually
to disc and reading it from there.
