Not weird. Normal.
@Anonymous op: interesting. I guess it would be weird if he had done it on Instagram but not LinkedIn.
how is this weird? Who ARE your connections on linkedin if not colleagues and potential or current supervisors? what else is it for? are you sure you are using it right? it is supposed to be your work persona.
@Anonymous op: I have colleagues, friends and former supervisors (not current). I guess I’m a bit surprised because I wouldnt request subordinates on LinkedIn.
why? it's not like facebook or instagram where you wouldn't request them bc that't their personal life. linkedin is your professional profile.
Totally normal that’s what it’s for
Op: thanks everyone!
LinkedIn = normal; FB/Insta = decline or no ghost.
You are way reading into this. I have even had bosses ask to friend me on FB and dont care. Just accept or don't but don't read it as a come on.
