Is there a way to post a general LinkedIn recommendation that is not associated with employment history, Christine? I understand that it is a good idea to have others post their recommendation of you on your LinkedIn profile page. I know someone that I would highly recommend but I have not actually worked with him. Thanks!”

Christine’s Answer: “Hi Linda, and thanks for writing. And congratulations on having people in your network you would highly recommend even though you haven’t worked with them!
To recommend them, you’ll need to get a little creative in your thinking since LinkedIn offers these recommendation categories: Colleagues, Service Providers, Business Partners and Students. I would use the closest category that describes your relationship … often Business Partner can fit the bill.
