LinkedIn Shenanigans

LinkedIn keeps trying to get me to endorse people for skills I’ve never observed or even known they’ve had.  Do employers actually go “oh, good, 6 people have endorsed Rochelle’s groundwater skills therefore let’s hire her!”

So, I took a look at my profile and see that, although I’m sure it’s well-meaning, a bunch of people have endorsed me for not only skills they have never witnessed, but skills I didn’t know I had or can define!



So is this even useful?  I cannot be the only one who gets endorsed for keywords in their resume by well-meaning friends, or people they don’t even know how they ended up in their network, who really don’t know how awesome my “soil skills” are.
