Why It’s Important to Connect on LinkedIn


After meeting with a recruiter or hiring manager, sending an invitation to connect on LinkedIn is key to building the relationship and staying informed about opportunities with their company.

Recruiters often post real-time opportunities and share relevant industry articles that you’ll gain access to by connecting on LinkedIn. Furthermore, through LinkedIn, you are able to stay fresh in their minds by easily sending an occasional outreach message using the messaging feature. As a business student, being fresh in recruiters’ minds is a key strategy to landing opportunities and maintaining industry relationships.
