Letters of Recommendation and LinkedIn Recommendations

October 6th, 2008 | by Jason Alba |

Recently I started writing for Peter Newfield’s blog, Career Resumes.  This morning I wrote a response to a question about how to get letters of recommendation when you are in a covert job search.  What a great question!  You don’t want anyone you ask to blow your cover, which could lead to an early termination…!

My response was to either ask people who you could trust to keep the secret (which shoudn’t be hard to do), or to work on your LinkedIn recommendations… I gave six reasons why LinkedIn Recommendations are the bomb (or, why they are different than a regular letter of recommendation)… check out the post here!

    Since I read your book, Jason, I’ve understood the value of Linked In. Thanks for that!
