I’ve only got a few (okay, two) LinkedIn recommendations, and one is from a previous boss of mine which is actually quite a glowing reference. However, in recent months I’ve lost a lot of respect for him professionally (we haven’t worked at the same company in several years, so it doesn’t affect me outside this) and I’m not terribly keen on the idea of having him recommend me. The reason that I’ve lost respect for him is unlikely to be known to most colleagues in the company where I work, or even among other people I’m likely to encounter.
Given that situation, should I follow my personal inclination and take down his recommendation, or leave it up in case it might be useful in the future? WWJD?
