Have you ever watched me sling some C#? No? Don’t Endorse Me.
Have you watched me ball out some jQuery and seen how awesome it was? No? Don’t Endorse Me.
Are we friends in life, connected on LinkedIn, and never actually worked together? Don’t Endorse Me.
Unless we have actually worked together, and you can confirm my skills without hesitation. Don’t Endorse Me.
The probability that any of the endorsements on LinkedIn are actually valid, are slim to none. Just because we know each other, doesn’t mean you have to endorse me. At the same time, don’t expect me to endorse you for these ‘skills’ if I’ve never seen you in action.
LinkedIn needs to completely revamp how these endorsements are carried out. Until that time, Don’t Endorse Me.
