How do I add recommendations to my LinkedIn profile?

There are two ways to add recommendations to your LinkedIn profile:

  1. Request a recommendation from a connection.
    1. Go to your profile and click on the “Recommendations” section.
    2. Click on the “Ask to be recommended” button.
    3. Select the connection you want to request a recommendation from.
    4. In the “Message” field, write a brief message explaining why you’re requesting a recommendation.
    5. Click on the “Send” button.
  2. Write a recommendation for a connection.
    1. Go to the connection’s profile and click on the “Recommend” button.
    2. In the “Relationship” field, select the relationship you have with the connection.
    3. In the “Position at the time” field, select the position the connection held when you worked with them.
    4. In the “Recommendation” field, write a brief recommendation for the connection.
    5. Click on the “Send” button.

Once you’ve requested or written a recommendation, the person you’ve requested or written the recommendation for will receive an email or message notification. They can then accept or decline the recommendation. If they accept the recommendation, it will be displayed on your profile.

Here are some tips for getting recommendations:

  • Choose the right people to ask. When you’re asking for recommendations, it’s important to choose people who know you well and can speak to your skills and abilities.
  • Be specific. When you’re writing a recommendation, be specific about the person’s skills and accomplishments. Don’t just say that they’re a “great worker” or that they’re “a valuable asset to the team.” Give specific examples of their work and how they’ve helped the company.
  • Be timely. Don’t wait until you’re looking for a new job to start asking for recommendations. Get them as soon as possible so that you have a good number of them to choose from when you start applying for jobs.

Recommendations are a great way to highlight your skills and accomplishments to potential employers. By following these tips, you can get the most out of your recommendations and improve your chances of getting the job you want.
