When application invites go wrong

This week's Poked column talks about people who love sending application invitations. It's fine to send stuff to friends, but too many requests to the same person can start to look like spam.

And if you're sending application invitations to co-workers that aren't your close friends, think twice before clicking send. If the application revolves around a topic that HR would frown upon, then chances are you can make that person uncomfortable.

And remember that you don't have to respond to every poke or application request that comes your way -- ignoring them doesn't make you rude. But if you are worried about offending the person, you can always send a short message to them saying you're just not that into their application.
