Should I ask for a referral on LinkedIn?
Never directly ask for a referral. That could put the person on the spot and make the situation uncomfortable. Instead, ask whether they might be able to refer you, or whether they know enough about your work history to feel comfortable referring you.
How do you ask someone for a referral?
You can ask for a referral by sending an old-fashioned letter, an email message, or a message on a networking site like LinkedIn or Facebook. Whichever way you chose, it’s better to ask in writing than over the phone. That way, the potential referrer has time to think over if and how they can refer you for a job.
How do you ask someone to introduce you on LinkedIn?
Locate the LinkedIn profile of the person you want to be introduced to. Click “Get introduced” on the right side of that profile. Look through the second-degree shared connections that LinkedIn says could introduce you to that person. Click on one of those connections and enter a subject for your message.
