This has got to mean a callback is coming, right?

It means they're probably laughing at your LinkedIn account.

The real question is did you click back?

omg need a new poll question


Should I click back on a recruiter's LinkedIn?

A. Yes. Just as important as a post-screener thank you note. Dinged if you don't.

B. No. That is creepy and not alpha enough. Dinged if you click.

i just clicked back on the recruiter's linkedin. i'll report back in a couple days when this presumably converts my ding to a callback.

This would be TCR. However, I did not interview with the person checking out my profile; I interviewed with two partners. The person looking at my profile was the firm's recruiting coordinator. This is the main reason why I think it means a callback is coming. I'm thinking the partners told him what a 180 I am, and he's just checking out the linkedins of upcoming callbacks this weekend. We'll see, though.

If you look at your profile there should be a box on the right side of the page that tells you.
