Hi, I have 2 questions for Mark and Mike which I hope will also be relevant to other members:

1) When you receive an Linkedin invitation from recruiters you don't know, should you connect? Manager tools has podcasts on what questions to ask recruiters when they call, but we can't do this from Linkedin invite. How best to assess if they are worth working with?

2) When you receive an Linkedin invitation to connect with Recruiters you know and work with, should you connect? Most people are connected with their colleagues and managers, and they would be able to see that you've connected with a recruiter (or should I connect but always change the settings so that your connections can't see who else you are connected to?).
