On LinkedIn, you have many smart, talented, and skilled professional connections. Since September 24th, LinkedIn have introduced “Endorsements”, a new feature that makes it easier to recognize users for their skills and expertise.
With just one click, you can now endorse your connections for a skill they’ve listed on their profile or recommend one they haven’t added yet. Think your connection is great at consulting and project management? Let them know!
Here’s how you can endorse your connections:
Introducing LinkedIn Endorsements from LinkedIn
On the top of a connection’s profile, you’ll see recommended endorsements for them. You can suggest additional skills as well.
You can also endorse them from the new Skills & Expertise section that now showcases these endorsements.
Want to see who has endorsed you? LinkedIn will notify you via email and on your LinkedIn profile whenever you are endorsed. You can scroll to the bottom of your profile page under “Skills and Expertise” to see the faces of people who think you’re great at what you do. You can also accept any new skills recommended by your peers that you may not have thought to include on your profile. Or you can also add a new skill by clicking on “add a skill” on your profile page.
It just takes one click. So go ahead, endorse your connections for their skills and help them show off their professional prowess.
