To endorse a single skill already listed on someone's profile:

  1. Scroll down to the Skills & Endorsements section of a connection's profile.
  2. Click the name of the skill, or the + sign next to the skill.

To endorse a connection for multiple skills at once:

  1. Go to a connection’s profile.
  2. Move your cursor over the down arrow next to Send a message in the top section and select Endorse.
    • A box will appear above the profile that might contain pre-filled skill suggestions.
  3. Type in a skill you want to endorse your connection for. Note: You must select from the options that appear as you type.
  4. Click the X next to any pre-filled suggest you don’t want to endorse them for.
  5. Click Endorse.
    • The box will then display suggested endorsements for more of your connections. You can click + Endorse under each connection, or click View more to see more suggestions.
    • Click Close when you’re done endorsing.

After you endorse someone, your name and picture will appear next to the skill on that person's profile. The person you've endorsed will also receive an email. The most endorsed skills will move to the top of the Skills & Endorsements section.

Your connection will have to approve the endorsements for suggested skills not yet listed on their profile before this happens.

Note: The window that displays four people to endorse may not always appear on profiles you view and your homepage, and the option to "Endorse all 4" at once is no longer available. You may need to go to individual profiles and follow the steps above to endorse your connections one at a time.
