Linked in Recommendations vs. Endorsements Linked in Recommendations vs. Endorsements Presentation Transcript

  • Linked in Recommendations vs. Endorsements
  • Linked in is a professional social media site geared toward engaging with business connections. Linked In Recommendations and Endorsements are a way to receive feedback and kudos from colleagues and clients.
  • An Endorsement Others can “endorse” the skills that you list on your profile. This gives credibility to your list of skills. Only first-level connections on Linkedin can endorse you. You cannot specifically request an endorsement as you can a recommendation.
  • To edit Skills for Endorsements: When on the Profile tab, click edit.
  • Below you can see all the skills I have listed and the endorsements I have received. Click Edit to change your skills listed.
  • Be sure to have an extensive and accurate list of skills.
  • You can Manage Endorsement and change their order of the skills in this tab. Press Save when you are all set! You now have your “Skills and Expertise section ready to go!
  • A Recommendation is a little different… In a previous slideshare I showed you how to request a recommendation. A recommendation is a review that employers or clients can give you in their own words about a job you have done. It goes below the job listed in the “Experience” Section of your Linked in Resume. This recommendation sits on your Linked in account for others to reference.
  • Which to pick? A recommendation gives in-depth context about the job you do. It allows the person to give concrete examples and express your strengths to your future clients. This give value to your future clients a peek at what they would be getting from you.
