I just interviewed with a company for a systems / business analyst position through a recruiting agency. Through my recruiter, I found out I was not chosen for the position, after only a few candidates were left in the final rounds.
I felt I really connected with my interviewers and really liked the company, both in terms of cultural fit, and position suitability.Through our conversation, I discovered we shared a similar background and many similar interests.
The interviewers seemed to really take interest in me as a strong candidate - answering my questions fully and selling me the benefits of working for the company, such as the flat hierarchy and small team based culture. I found these to be very appealing.
I am thinking of connecting with interviewers on LinkedIn as I would be interested in maintaining a professional connection with them, and in case o future employment opportunities.
Is there an etiquette in connecting with interviewers on LinkedIn for an interview that was unsuccessful?
