A strong recommendation is powerful enough to get you into the job, but choosing the right people can be challenging, especially when you’ve lost touch with them for a long time already. Is it okay to ask them for a recommendation? How will you do it? Yes, it is totally okay to ask them, but you should be very careful when doing so. In as much as possible, ask them early, a month or more, to write a letter of recommendation, perhaps. You should also consider your strengths and be able to reach out to them on their most preferred method.
