Question: “Christine, how can I put a recommendation on my LinkedIn profile that I received through email?”
Christine’s Answer: “Rachel, thank you for writing and asking a great question that many others are also waiting to hear the answer to.
The easiest way to add outside recommendations to your LinkedIn profile is to add them via the Box.net application in the menu under your More tab at the top of your LinkedIn account page.
Here’s how you do it: simply create a Box.net account, upload the document, and it will then be visible when your profile is viewed.
BONUS TIP #1: If you want to really emphasize the document, I suggest mentioning in in your Summary … or even your Headline, if you think it’s of utmost importance!
BONUS TIP #2: You can also add it as an “other” website, customizing the name for your keywords/message, with a Google Docs, etc., link.
