Hello and Welcome!
In this short video workshop you’ll learn how to request, provide and manage recommendations on LinkedIn.
Let’s Get Started!
LinkedIn enables you to request recommendations from and provide recommendations to the people in your network.
Recommendations are a powerful strategy for building your sustainable network of mutually beneficial business relations on LinkedIn.
Receiving recommendations from managers and clients can help achieving your networking goals on LinkedIn.
Before you send requests, think about what you want to achieve.
If you want to move into a top management position, ask for recommendations that discuss your leadership ability in action.
Personalize each recommendation request you send.
At times, you might want to recommend your connections even if they don’t send you a recommendation request.
You can initiate a recommendation by visiting your connection’s profile page and click the recommend link below the
related position which opens the CREATE YOUR RECOMMENDATION page.
You’ll want to manage received recommendations and to manage recommendations you give to others effectively.
Request a new recommendation if you have a new job title or you receive a promotion.
Add a new position and request a recommendation for that job rather than revising an existing recommendation.
You can write a recommendation for your manager, colleague or service provider.
You will use this simple outline:
