First of all, Happy New Year/Feliz Año Nuevo/Bon Any Nou!
I answered yes, but really I only recommend one other colleague. I’ve known her for nearly 20 years and we’ve collaborated on several projects over the years and still do on a regular basis.
I would have to know someone personally and quite well before I was willing to put my own reputation on the line by recommending them. If they didn’t do a good job, and there was a problem, I would feel personally responsible (whether I should or not) and that could put a dent in even a good friendship.
Happy New Year too!
