When do you add your project team, counselor, partner, and colleagues (inside and outside core practice) on LinkedIn? I’ve interacted with some of these people for over 6 months and still haven’t added them.

Just go for it, don’t worry about holding back. Loads of people I don’t even know try and add me so if you’ve actually met then it’s fine!

Curate who you include on LinkedIn, particularly if you don't have a genuine connection. Recruiters, depending on country, may call people in your network as references. I don't include anyone who won't sprawl highly of me of those I've worked with.

Lol I add people after the first call even if neither of us say a word let alone to each other. It's LinkedIn don't over think it. I reshared a job posting from my company and we ended up hiring a guy that added me years ago after a call. He never would of saw that job posting otherwise.

I get added by random colleagues all the time. As long as you’ve actually interacted with any of them (and honestly even if you haven’t) it’s totally fine.

But why tho?

I usually add client and consulting contacts as I am ending a client project. And then there are others from my past that just keep popping in and I accept as well.

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
