This week, Im focusing on obtaining LinkedIn recommendations. Many younger job seekers are foregoing formal letters of recommendation and instead, asking people for recommendations they can include on their LinkedIn profile. Then, they choose the recommendations they want to show within their profile and can hide (or unhide) the others. Many of my clients print out their LinkedIn recommendations and provide them to the hiring manager at the end of job interviews instead of formal recommendation letters. My client, Brittany (name changed), was excited to show me that she already had two recommendations on her LinkedIn profile.Her problem?The recommendations were too short and didnt include specific information that would be helpful to a hiring manager or recruiter.
