I am currently in the middle to end stages of the interviewing process. I have had F2F meetings with all the appropriate parties I am aware of.
Today I received a LinkedIn request from the corporate recruiter that I am reluctant to accept while still employed at my current company.
I am currently connected to my manager and team members, and I would not want them to see a notification from a new connection I have made with a recruiter from a specific company ( not a general recruiter ).
- Am I being overly cautious or is there a real risk of raising questions by my current manager as I think there is?
- Doesn't it seem strange that an in house recruiter I just met would send me a LinkedIn request before the hiring process has ended ( for better or worse )?
