An old coworker and I got together for coffee recently and she mentioned that she is looking for a new job. We also chatted a bit about LinkedIn, and I realized that even though providing someone with a recommendation is super easy, I had never actually done so!
This morning I sat down and wrote out a recommendation for her. It couldn't have taken more than 15 minutes of my time, and hopefully it will help her out in some way as she looks for new opportunities.
Have you ever written a LinkedIn recommendation? Do you think you ever will? Why or why not?
