MD Linkedin Request

Trying to network by adding MDs on Linkedin but some take forever to accept. How long do MDs usually take to accept requests ?

Most MDs only check their LinkedIn a few times a year. When they do accept requests, its usually only from their reports or people in their firm. So, you can put in your requests if you want, but I recommend you find other ways to reach out to people. 

Doubt this is true. Their job is to network...

Edit: I keep getting these stupid alerts from some of you idiots. I guaruntee MDs check their linked in more than "a couple of times a year". I've seen a bunch of them quite active. Given that they and clients keep their linkedin up to date, i can assure you that they are looking at it. They just don't respond to people they dont know because it's not worth their time.

Anyways, please get a clue and have fun dreaming about getting into this stupid industry.

Am I in the minority here for believing you should wait to add people on LinkedIn until after speaking with them either over the phone or in-person? Not up to speed on what the kids are doing these days.

Agree with other posters, fuck off with the spam. College kid here and I get spammed by at least a dozen reqs weekly from random kids at my school etc. People really think pressing the connect button is networking. Why would a random MD bother to add you?

I had a department head add me back in 5 minutes once, but I've also had some never add me back so it totally depends. With MDs though, I never just randomly add with no message. It's always someone I've already met or someone I sent an inmail to. Never just a random request with no message.
