LinkedIn Launches Endorsements Feature

Posted Sep 24, 2012

LinkedIn has launched a new feature called Endorsements.  The Endorsements feature makes it easier to acknowledge people for their specific skills.  For example if you are good at sales, one of your colleagues can give you credit towards that specific attribute or skill that you have.  With these types of testimonials, it helps build your social credibility when applying for jobs at different companies.  You can endorse your colleagues with just one click.  LinkedIn lets you endorse colleagues by clicking on top of that connection’s profile or in the new Skills & Expertise section.  Endorsements has launched in English in the U.S., India, New Zealand, and Australia.  Below is a slideshow that LinkedIn released about the feature.
