You can add and remove skills from the Skills & Endorsements section on your Edit Profile page. Maintaining a relevant list of skills on your profile will help others understand your strengths and match you with the right opportunities.

To add skills in your Skills & Endorsements section:

  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
  2. Scroll down to the Skills & Endorsements section and click the Edit icon in the upper right.
  3. Type the name of a skill and then choose it from the dropdown list that appears. If your skill doesn't appear, completely type in the skill name in the field.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Click Save.

You can add up to 50 skills to your profile. Skills with the most endorsements will be listed first. Skills without endorsements are displayed according to when they were added. There's no way to make a skill without an endorsement appear higher than skills with endorsements.

To remove skills in your Skills & Endorsements section:

  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
  2. Scroll down to the Skills & Endorsements section and click the Edit icon in the upper right.
  3. Click the X next to any skill to remove it or drag and rearrange any skills without endorsements.
  4. Click Save.

Note: If you don't have any skills listed on your profile, the Skills & Endorsements section will not be displayed.
