Is it viewed favorably to send a linkedin invitation to an interviewer after the interview?

Your call. I personally would probably wait until the hype died down, and then shoot them one. I think it just depends on how well you connected with the person, and whether you think they'd still want to speak to you if you were to be denied.

if he liked you, then it wont make him not like you (well, maybe not). if he didn't and you're not getting the job, it's not going to change his mind.....either way, there is NO upside, and marginal, but not de minimis, downside

I would wait until after you hear back either way.


If the person you are trying to connect with is a professional, then he or she will not accept you until after the decisions have been made.


I would hold off. Related: the key to LinkedIn is quality over quantity. Don't be the guy with 500+ shitty connections.

Like others, I'd wait to see how things go. If you end up getting an offer, definitely. Or if they offer feedback on your interview/demonstrate a strong willingness to help you out even if things don't end up working out, then consider it. But err on the side of waiting to see how things turn out first.


Do it. I used to add interviewers who rejected me all the time. You never know when circumstances can change in your favor.

No. They should invite you. Also, during the interview, instead of only talking about your own qualities, ask what they have to offer you. Instead of replying to questions all the time, ask questions. Stand out from the rest.
