So, I am all about asking for an earned endorsement or recommendation on LinkedIn – or anywhere really…but this was literally appalling to me! I connected with this guy, like many others, upon his request and never heard a peep out of him…until I got this message:
I blackened out his identifying information just to be kind but…wish I didn’t feel I had to. Seriously – who does this???
But wait – there’s more. When I first got this message, I remember being flabbergasted…like what the heck did I just read???? I decided just to ignore it rather than waste my energy… But then, 6 months later I get the exact same message from him again!!!
This is not what LinkedIn recommendations are all about. What happened to integrity and authenticity?
Have any of you received similar messages?
