LinkedIn's Endorsements Have Become Meaningless

LinkedIn's Endorsements Have Become Meaningless | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

LinkedIn rolled out Endorsements in late September. The idea was that rather than go through the trouble of actually writing a Recommendation, you could merely check off a box. Think of it as a Facebook "Like" for business skills.

By one measure, the product has been a huge success. LinkedIn says that there have been 550 million Endorsements so far and 10 million are given every day. That level of activity has doubtlessly boosted LinkedIn's engagement metrics.

That has come at a cost, though. While I initially viewed Endorsements with interest, now I consider them a nuisance.

How NOT to Contact Recruiters on LinkedIn

How NOT to Contact Recruiters on LinkedIn | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Lots of us in the recruiting world are very active on LinkedIn, doing what we can to be accessible to jobseekers. We love networking, meeting new people and finding great candidates to fill our openings. Many of us also like to give back to our networks, helping out in any way we can. That said, there are some requests that cross the line, in my opinion, and I think that jobseekers should be careful to leverage their network without taking advantage of it. Most have the purest intentions in mind and aren’t even aware that their request may not be received in the best light, so this list is written to help jobseekers make the best possible impression when networking with recruiters on LinkedIn.
