I 'dropped' some names of my professional connections to familiarize and I was told I'm being unprofessional.. I think it's becoming another Apple without their cash πŸ˜€

    You shouldn't be name dropping in an interview. That sounds embarrassing. Neither should the manager interviewing you. Every company should have training about what not to say in an interview. Some are illegal some are just unprofessional.

    Wait, what? Name dropping during an interview? Why? Who does that?

  • Maybe he has some shady background that he doesn’t want you know about through common friends.

    • Shady background including faked his resume / experience / back-stabbing coworkers to move up / etc.

      Yeah, there is something going on that is not just about small talk. He could be insecure plus might have something to loose if OP joins.

    No.. he took the effort to send me a message on LinkedIn and then removed me from his connections list. I just spoke about him for 3 secs in a 90 mins meeting

      This was an interview and manager started dropping some mutual connections and I reciprocated. Later he might have checked with this mutual connection and this joker took the effort to write to me on LinkedIn that I shouldn't have taken his name..

      Maybe interview didn't go well and your connection didn't want to be associated with you? Just a speculation since we don't know about you interview and what did you talk about this connection.

    You should only namedrop people you know well and trust will say something nice at an interview. Seems pretty reasonable response to me.

      He is connected with me on LinkedIn band I've tried to help him solve an issue in the past so I thought we 'knew' each other professionally
