When someone recommends you, you'll receive a message in your LinkedIn inbox and a notification on the Manage Recommendations page.

To accept the recommendation:

  1. Click the Inbox icon at the top of your homepage.
  2. Click the subject line link of the message indicating that a connection has recommended you.

    Note: If you've deleted the inbox item, you won't be able to display the recommendation.

  3. Click Accept Recommendation.

The recommendation will appear in the Recommendations box on your profile and an update will go out to your network.

Note: Clicking Reply on the notification will not cause the recommendation to display on your profile. Instead, it creates a message you can send to the person who recommended you. If someone sent a message or email recommending you instead of sending the recommendation through LinkedIn, you can reply to their email or message and encourage them to review our steps for sending recommendations.
