My Favorite LinkedIn Recommendation

July 9th, 2010 | by Jason Alba |

I have had this LinkedIn Recommendation sitting in my box (not actively shown) for a while… I can’t put it on my profile for obvious reasons, but I sure get a chuckle out of it every time I read it (more on WHY below):

Now, Harp Arora wrote that because I was working on my LinkedIn book (or was it the LinkedIn DVD?) and I need to have an outstanding recommendation I could see (and walk through the process).  I went to Twitter and asked for Recommendations for that purpose (I hate asking for Recommendations just to ask for them… ).

Thank you Harp, for your fun sense of humor!  And, if there ever is a statue of me… oh wait, there won’t ever be (much less a religion!)!

    Too funny Jason, forgot all about that. But now that I re-read it, it’s clear I was 100% accurate in my assessment, and they SHOULD build a statue for you!

    Forgive my stupidity Jason, why not?

    I’m with Will — I don’t get why not? I feel like I’m missing a secret punch line. I’d keep it! :-)

    @Will and Sophie… well…. now that I read back through this I wonder why not also… but I think the recommendation was left as a joke, since I asked for a recommendation (out to my network, not expecting a real one). When I read this I laughed, was amused, but didn’t think it would be appropriate to make active, especially if it was a joke. So there’s my cloudy reasoning…
