We know that recommendations are offered and
posted
on LinkedIn.com.  Are they real many ask. 
It appears
that they are reciprocal letters for each
other’s profiles and
they do not satisfy the
authenticity test in that they are
adjective-filled
paragraph, not providing a situation
with results
and implications.


An interesting suggestion was offered this weekend
at a
workshop.  Dr. Sabina Robinson shared with me
that
it may be sooner than we think that people will be
offering
letters of reference to an authenticated file.

It is done already for college, medical and law school
admissions applications.  1  2  3
