I’m not saying you should not connect with your co-workers or recruiter but don’t let others know whom you are connecting with. It is a simple matter to simply reset your “Who can see your connections” under “Privacy” setting to “Only you.”
Why should your boss, someone in your HR department or a recruiter you just connected with be able to search through your proverbial sock drawer without permission? Lock up your connections. Who you are connected with and why is your business alone.
