Why Should I Accept Your LinkedIn Connection?

Everyone who is in business needs a LinkedIn profile. Every company looks at it. You want to make sure that you are noticed by the people looking for services like yours. It’s hard to understand how anyone in the business world would not have a profile on there. A profile should look a lot like a resume.

Key Takeaways:

  • If I knew you, that would be one thing. I get invitations from lots of people that I work with or have personally met or emailed so that’s usually a no-brainer.
  • If I don’t know who you are and you’re from specific parts of Africa, Eastern Europe, South America, the Middle East or Florida, I’m likely going to reject you.
  • I don’t know how all this stuff works, but if your profile looks suspicious I’m afraid that by accepting your invitation you’ll do something bad to my account or to those that I’m connected.

“To me, a legit LinkedIn profile from someone who lives in a far off or dangerous place (like New Jersey) that is completely filled out with jobs and schools and has connections with more than 500 people, including a few in my network and follows a few smart thought leaders that I admire, like Richard Branson.”
