So, I use LinkedIn for networking; at career fairs or professional accounting networking events, I would exchange business cards with others and asked if it was okay if I added them onto my LinkedIn network.
Now, the issue is, however, I am getting non-professional requests to be added to my professional network: my aunt and uncle.
I feel like this is a sticky situation. I would look like a snob if I didn’t add them to my network; but at the same time, I fear that I would lose my credibility if I haven’t dealt with relatives on a professional level. (I’m really picky of who I have on my professional network)
What would YOU do if relatives request to be added onto your LinkedIn network?
