Dear Experts, Should I send a request to connect on LinkedIn with people who interview me? If so, when should I do it? Before or after the interview? Should I also invite everyone else I met while at the interview? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter:Q#405 Unless I hired u, I wdn't accept. Have reason they'd want 2. If u must ask, do AFTER intrvw, expect no. (@juliaerickson) Q#405 U have rt 2 find out wht 2 expect in interview. If they on LinkedIn, use it 2 ask yr question. Ive done before w/ NP. (@JoshuaWaldman) Q#405 Wait until after the interview. Also, don't necessarily expect to be accepted for Conflict-Of-Interest reasons. (@gradversity) Q#405 (JT's right) Too invasive to connect right after interview. Do connect after decision. Build network & keep options open. (@DawnBugni) Q#405 It never hurts to ask for the connection. The worst can happen is they don't accept. Won't hurt your job prospects. (@JoshuaWaldman) Q#405 Don't request via LinkedIn until after hiring decision is made. People you met may feel that's too pushy. (@jtodonnell) Q#405 That sounds a little strange to me. I'd wait until the job's in the bag before networking on LinkedIn. (@beneubanks) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
