Mother Recommends Circus Students
Matt League realized that with only a pinch of experience and one hell of a portfolio, his LinkedIn recommendation list was a bit dusty. Maybe even nonexistent. Realizing that he wasn't the only one in this situation, he created a fake LinkedIn account and began posting recommendations from "Mother Recommends" (no relation to the agency) to his fellow Creative Circus student's accounts.
With recommendations that read: “Hire Sara Steinberg and I guarantee she will be the melty cheese and sauce that holds the 5-layer lasagna that is your advertising agency together.” How can anyone resist?
