Why Do I Need LinkedIn Recommendations?

Resumelinkup (6)

You are vetted by others without your knowledge, who search LinkedIn to learn more about you and your online reputation.

LinkedIn recommendations are permanent testimonials displayed publicly on your profile which validate your performance by professionals who know your work. This section can be very valuable for job seekers; think of recommendations as your references that will be viewed by the hiring manager, giving you the advantage.

These testimonials are best written in the first person, by someone with specific knowledge, written in their own words.
