An invitation from an interviewer on LinkedIn can feel reassuring and validating. It can mean that a prospective employer wants to see more details on your profile or considers you a valuable professional contact. At the same time, depending on the number of connections the interviewer has, they may have a policy of adding strong candidates to their network. In general, receiving a LinkedIn invite from an interviewer does not mean that you have gotten the job or have not gotten the job. It is neither a good nor a bad sign, though it does indicate that the interviewer has taken the time to look up your profile and the initiative to send an invite. You may choose whether or not to accept this invitation, but it is a good idea to grow your professional network whether or not you get a position. When it comes to initiating contact with interviewers, most employment experts do not recommend sending invitations to interviewers. Other suggest that you personalize your request and only send a request if the interview went well.
