Given how common requests for LinkedIn recommendations are and how devalued their currency has become, I’ve thought for a while that it would be helpful to have a tool to generate these automatically.
I guess that’s another project to cross off my to-do list because I just came across the LinkedIn endorsement generator.
Here’s how I’d use it to recommend myself:
Christian did an exceptional job on the recent project. Christian is a detail oriented, innovative and careful perfectionist – his ideas, skills, creativity and understanding of change requests made the project a dream. He has an extensive knowledge, and his open-minded approach could not be overestimated. He denotes a strong experience in areas such as project management and software architecture.
That’s better than I could do! The fact that the grammar is not perfect makes the business-speak even better.
