I noticed yesterday when doing some LinkedIn fine tuning that we can now sort ALL of the skills we have listed under the endorsement section. Previously the top ten of your listed endorsements where sorted, top down, and we were unable to rearrange. The following forty however we could move as we saw fit.
What frustrated me, and many I speak to, is that we acquire new skills regularly and need these visible to help with our credibility. Not many of us will scroll and click to see the hidden skills.
This is a great change to the format and one that will help us all and highlight your new skills to those that view your profile. I agree, its not a perfect system, but neither the less its evolving in the right direction. Only downside, until someone endorses a skill you have moved it sits there with no validation. Could this have an adverse effect?
So take some time now and move your new skills you want your network to see and pay it forward, endorse someone. Though ONLY if you have experienced that skill. Or even better – write a recommendation for that person.
