What happens when I match with an employer?
First, you’re given the chance to accept or decline the employer’s interest by selecting “accept” or “decline.” There is no harm at all in declining, but please do get back to employers in a timely fashion either way.
If you “accept” an employer's request to connect, you will now be matched and can start messaging with them in the platform right away. A polite “Hello, nice to meet you! I’m curious to learn more about your open roles” or something similar is a great way to jump-start the conversation. Additionally, to stand out, you could proactively check out the company's website to learn more and say what interests you about the company.
