Angee often gets asked if recruiters really look at a LinkedIn recommendation. For her, the answer is, yes – sometimes. It’s not just what people are saying about you, but also who is saying it. Angee loves it when a former direct report, manager or executive leader is willing to say a few things about why you are a great person to work with. But she doesn’t give as much credence to those recommendations from peers or friends who simply say “you’re AMAZING!” or “super fun!”
