LinkedIn Introduces Endorsements, A Way To Get recognised For Your Skills

LinkedIn has introduced Endorsements, a way to recognise people for their skills and achievements.

It’s a way to affirm people for skills listed on their profiles and recommend new skills that might not appear there yet.

Here’s how it works, per the company’s blog post:

  • 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.

LinkedIn will notify you via email when you’ve been endorsed by someone.
