I recently interviewed someone, and was suitably impressed. I want to connect on LinkedIn (the interview process is not complete yet), but am stumped by 'How do you know' connect options:
Is he my friend? Is he my (to-be) colleague (what if he doesn't get the job)? Have we done business together?
(Answers to) FAQs
- No, we do not share a common group.
- I don't know his email address (or rather which one he uses on LinkedIn), so can't use the Other option.
- This is a rolling opening, so there aren't (technically) other candidates. Plus, adding him on LinkenIn (because being done for the right reasons after having spoken to him) is exactly the signal I want to give, if someone were receiving signals.
