Agreed, don’t know why people do this. I had a candidate add me on LinkedIn halfway through our on-Campus presentation recently, instant reject

Yeah but you got any tips?

Lol the tips part is definitely too much. I didn’t interviews recently where the recruiter sent me all the hiring managers linked in and said to look at it before we met

The worst type is someone who stalked you and asked you for tips without adding you.
