Should You Connect with Your Instructors on LinkedIn?

Research Rockstar students often ask, “Is it okay to ask my instructors to connect with me on LinkedIn?”

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: Please do!  Anyone who has participated in a Research Rockstar class knows they are very interactive. Students and instructors have a true, two-way dialog during our classes. This establishes connections that can extend outside of the virtual classroom and benefit all parties. After all, we are all marketing research professionals. We all gain from networking with our research brethren.

As our Lead Instructor Kathryn Korostoff says, “Professional market researchers are a real tribe. We tend to have a lot in common—analytical thinking, academic accomplishments, and a propensity to challenge assumptions.” So yes, feel free to send your instructors invites on LinkedIn. We are all in this together!
