Recommendations are not new, but they are now more visible than ever. Some would even say they have taken on new currency with Endorsements being so easy to come by. Indeed, recommendations take longer to write, so you might feel funny asking managers and colleagues to write them for you. But they are key to making a good impression. Your recommendations of other people are also highlighted, so be sure to not only provide recommendations, but also make sure you are being thoughtful and judicious in whom and how you recommend.
