According to David Breger’s blog post on LinkedIn this week, LinkedIn introduced users to Endorsements, a new LinkedIn feature that will make it easier for users to recognize their connections for their skills and expertise.
It’s easy, says Breger. “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.”
For instance, I just recommended a writing colleague of mine for his social media and writing talents. He’s also a great PR practitioner—and since that didn’t come up in his list of recommended skills, I simply added to it.
From LinkedIn, here’s how to endorse someone:
- 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.
