Linkedin can be really hard to navigate, these two took quite some time to figure out 🙂
See recent activity
Sometimes you know someone has posted an update or an article, but how to find it? It seems lost forever in the feed. Easy, just go to that persons profile, click on the small arrow on the right hand side of the “Send message” button and choose “See recent activity”.
Ask for Recommendation
Giving recommendations is easy, you’ll find that option in the same menu as above, go to the persons profile, click on the small arrow and look for “Recommend”. But how to ASK for a recommendation? Same thing! Go to your own profile and click on the arrow and choose “Ask for recommendation”, you can then specify which position you want someone to recommend you for.
