Symantec have been busy laying off all my previous workmates in Australia, turns out development is cheaper in Estonia.
I have been busy sending a few of them Careers invites.
I would like to add LinkedIn-style recommendations to my old colleagues, to help them in their job hunting.
The way I see it, getting a generic invite to careers is way less impactful then getting a personalized message. I should be able to include my recommendation as part of the invite.
For example, add a text box on the invite with my recommendation:
Sam Saffron would like to invite you to Stack Overflow Careers:
He also added a recommendation:
"Fred is a waffle connoisseur, his skills in waffledom are second to none. If I were to embark on a Waffle adventure, he would be the first person I would hire."
Once you sign up you will be able to choose to display this recommendation on your profile.

I should be able to add a recommendation prior to sign-up or after sign-up.
