UNSUITABLE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACKNOWLEDGED
The Elements of Great
We rely on recommendations for everything
from where to eat, shop, travel, and what prod-
ucts or services to buy. Recommendations have
always been a part of the hiring process, as
employers rely on the word of someone who
knows a potential employee to vouch for his or
her talents, expertise and character.
Don't Do This...
Imagine receiving this message via LinkedIn in your
regular email account as I did recently:
"[Name] has shared his profile with you. Click be-
low to leave him a quick recommendation. He will
be much obliged you have supported his efforts!"
At first blush it seems like a routine use of social me-
dia to enhance the reputation of a contact. However:
Rather than coming from someone you know, it
turns out that it comes from a total stranger.
This stranger has also copied more than 20 other
total strangers on the message.
Rather than directing you to LinkedIn's own rec-
ommendation feature, the link sends you to another
This is a case of brash networking incompetence.
When you act this way, you can easily lose potential
friendships and alienate people.
I regarded the email as shameless self-promotion,
asking me to lie about knowing a person and to make
up something positive about him to lure others into
a relationship with him.
Instead, Use LinkedIn's Recommendations
One of LinkedIn's most underused, but a poten-
tially valuable function, is the Recommendation (as
opposed to the Endorsement). A recommendation
actually requires someone to use words instead of
just clicking an endorsement.
LinkedIn safeguards its users from having negative
or inaccurate things said about them by requiring
that the person being referred OK's a recommen-
dation prior to it being posted on their profile. And,
it allows the two people involved to work with each
other to tweak the language until both are entirely
satisfied with it.
When you give others whose personalities and work
you admire a recommendation, you show yourself
to be a strong networker and team player. And, of
course, what goes around tends to come around in
the form of a return recommendation.
In order to give a 1st degree LinkedIn connection a
recommendation, simply navigate to their profile and
click on the down arrow next to the blue and white
"send a message" button to open up the menu. It is
the third item in the menu.
