Absolutely. Closed mouths don’t get fed.

A best practice would be to ask in person or over the phone, but you can use your own discretion based on how well you know the recommender.


Sideways: bro lets exchange recs in linkedin for those posers. Just dont say i am batman.
Upwards/clients: Hey partnerX, i would really appreciate if you could write that good feedback you told me in my linkedin.
Downwards: Usually dont ask when they are still under my management.
