It’s time to enhance your credibility through Recommendations on LinkedIn

Recommendations have largely taken the place of references. They add to your personal brand on LinkedIn by enhancing your credibility

The more recommendations you have from credible people, the quicker recruiters, hiring managers and prospective clients will make assessments that you are somebody worthwhile doing business with.

Key steps to building up your recommendations:

LinkedIn has laid out the process for you, but don’t use their default message.

Explain to your contact that you’re updating your profile and would appreciate a recommendation.

Ask for a recommendation in a specific area of high value to you.

Ask for two or three paragraphs that detail specifics, rather than a general recommendation.

Remember, recommendations can only come from LinkedIn connections. If you have not invested time in making connections on LinkedIn, start doing so today.
