Be a Friend, Recommend!

Posted on: October 3, 2010

There’s no better way to say you care than to recommend someone that deserves it on Linkedin.  It beefs up their page and it gives perspective employers an idea of how great an asset that person could be to a company.

I often get trapped in the same routine of receiving and giving recommendations to current and former colleagues, but I think it is also wonderful to recommend people you work with outside of your company.

I work with PR professionals. Some are excellent and some are downright terrible. I appreciate the PR professionals that are not pushy or demanding. The person that takes the time to get to know me and create a good working relationship. That person should be celebrated.

 Just like networking aids job seekers, networking while in your business creates good working relationships. This statement may be business 101 to most people, but believe me I’ve been treated poorly by some PR professionals. 

I believe that you should show appreciation where it is deserved and keep that positive professional relationship flourishing!
