Do LinkedIn Endorsements Really Matter?

Do LinkedIn Endorsements Really Matter? | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Like them or not, they're worth paying attention to.

Via Barb Jemmott
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article) Think about endorsements as new and improved keywords. LinkedIn automatically defaults to ranking your skills by the number of endorsements you have, but to get more endorsements for the skills you want to emphasize, rearrange your list and move those skills higher. Also, if you’re getting endorsed for random things or for things you don’t want to be endorsed for, you can always hide either the entire skill or the particular endorser. Just set your profile to edit mode and you’ll see a little demo in the Skills and Endorsements section showing you how to edit it.

This is an important article for any job seeker (and the link that follows may be of interest as well).  LinkedIn is one of the primary vehicles for recruiters....

I agree with @donhornsby on this.  I know there are skeptics when it comes to LI endorsements but I think they are meaningful.

Senior executives need to take such social tools seriously, for a variety of reasons.

I hope this works better for you than it does for me, but then you're probably not sharing your name with a former world champion tennis player, Converse's best selling shoe and a character from American Dad! Go get 'em!
