One of my biggest issues with LinkedIn is that it’s only possible to give recommendations to people you’ve worked with in a ‘job’ capacity. It’s not possible to recommend a tutor, or a fellow student whom you’ve worked with during your Education. As someone who’s only recently started their career, I haven’t worked with many people in my Job capacity, making it hard to request and give Recommendations based on my job alone. With this in mind, I recently asked if LinkedIn will implement Education recommendations.

Here’s their response:

We do not do recommendations for education only for positions. I
think it would be a great idea to have this feature added. I will pass
along the suggestion.
