What Goes in LinkedIn Invitation to HR Manager?

Dear Experts, I would like to get advice about whether or not it is appropriate to connect on LinkedIn with HR people whom I have sent a resume and cover letter to in response to a job opening. If so, what is the best thing to say in the invitation to connect message? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#420 Let them know know why you are trying to connect with them. Be honest, polite, and professional. (@gradversity) Q#420 Unless U have a REAL reason 2 connect other than job application, don't try 2 get w/HR ppl on LinkedIn. (@beneubanks) Q#420 I'd say "I want 2 connect so you can see my complete public profile, as I've just applied 4 a job w/you."
