How to ask for your first Recommendation
If you’ve already received recommendations on LinkedIn, adding new ones is pretty simple. You just go to the segment of your LinkedIn profile and click Manage.
However, if you’ve never had a recommendation before, navigating your way can be pretty tricky. In this blog post, I hope to clear this up for you and help those who are new to the platform receive their first LinkedIn Recommendation.
To request your first LinkedIn Recommendation, you will need to:
- Visit the profile of the person from whom you wish to receive it
- Click on triple dots on the top right of their profile. Select ‘Request a Recommendation’.
3. Follow the prompts and submit the request.
You will be notified once the person has supplied the recommendation. You will have the opportunity to approve it or ask for adjustments. Don’t be afraid to ask for them – or offer to draft the recommendation for them – most people don’t know what to write and will be happy for the help.
If you have any questions, let us know.
