I had an interview today morning which went well and the interviewer seemed positive. On the way back, I dropped him a LinkedIn request with a thank you note, which he accepted. Should I take this as a positive signal. Any thoughts ??
Sending LinkedIn connection request to your interviewer.
Overview of answers
it is quite common that candidates send LinkedIn invites to interviewers, rarely also the other way round. Don't take this as a positive signal. Interviewers would not reject a contact request only because the candidate failed. Whether you want to stay in touch depends on the overall interaction and interviewers do also accept requests of candidates that did not succeed.
Be patient until you get the official result!
I would not take this as either a positive or negative signal. I would say that it is not a signal at all.
It's not a signal at all. He just accepted your request.
Speaking of Germany: (i) I would not send a thank you note to the interviewer - if at all, send a note to the recruitment team and (ii) definitely do not take it as a positive signal. Sorry :)
I wouldn't read to much into it, it is common courtesy to accept a LinkedIn request.
As hard as it might be, it is now just a waiting game until you hear back :)
