Are you wanting to get more (or any) recommendations on your LinkedIn account? Here’s how…

  1. Add contacts for the places you’ve worked at in the past. As many as you can find who would even remotely recognize your name.
  2. Once they’ve approved, go through that list of contacts and recommend everyone you feel comfortable recommending.
  3. Before sending your individual recommendations, Click on edit in the the [view / edit] links just above the Send button.
  4. Add a message thanking them for their hard work, and that you’d love a recommendation as well.

That’s it! Be honest and complimentary, and many of the people you recommend will recommend you right back.

It works! I have more recommendations than the average LinkedIn user. Check my public profile.
