I have a profile on LinkedIn with a few recommendations from others. When I view my own profile, I can see the recommendations. I have been performing a few tests and, apparently,
- if someone who's a direct connection views my profile, they can see the recomendations on my profile.
- If someone who has a LinkedIn profile, but it's not a direct connection of mine, visits my profile, they can't see the recommendations.
- If someone who doesn't own a LinkedIn profile, or is logged out, visits my profile page, they also can't see the recommendations.
In my opinion, a key point for building a great linkedin profile is to get goot recommendations, but what is the point if potential employers can't see it?!
Or I'm making some mistake and there's a setting somewhere to publicly enable this?
