  1. Excellent post — I have long advocated that you should connect to hiring managers in order to see their connections and then you can pick out interesting names in the list to review with them, but if someone isn’t connected to you or hides their connections, then this is better (and certainly saves you time if they’re cooperative with the request to review the list they self-generate via this method).
