Not all networking is good networking. Do you agree?
This is from Caroline Ceniza-Levine and her most recent Forbes article on when to reject a LinkedIn connection request.
I look for:
➜ A freshness date. This is Ed Han's term that I love. Basically, are they engaged, active users on LinkedIn? When did they last comment or like something? Do they share original content?
➜ Common connections. Do we run in similar circles on LinkedIn? Do we follow the same people?
➜ Interesting people. If I am intrigued to know more about you and understand how I can learn from you, I am all in. A note with the connection request usually makes this determination easier.
