Job search website Linked has recently released a new feature: "Ask for a Referral." If you apply for jobs on LinkedIn.com, you will want to check this out.
It's different than the endorsements and recommendations that are available today.
Without ever leaving the job posting, LinkedIn members can click the ‘Ask for a Referral’ button, and instantly request a referral from first-degree connections. It's similar to providing a reference during a job application process.
Check out my tutorial for information about how to ask for a referral on LinkedIn.
