The professional network company LinkedIn's new feature called "Endorsements," makes it easier to recognize your professional connections on LinkedIn for their skills and expertise.

Starting today, "Endorsements launches in english across the United States, India, New Zealand, and Australia," the company posted.

LinkedIn says, it just takes one click to endorse your connections for their skills and help them show off their professional prowess.

"With just one click, you can now endorse your connections for a skill they've listed on their profile or recommend one they haven't added yet. Think your connection is great at programming AND project management? Let them know!," the company wrote.

For those interested, just follow the steps below to start endorsing your connections:

  • "On the top of a connection's profile, you'll see recommended endorsements for them. You can suggest additional skills as well.
  • You can also endorse them from the new Skills & Expertise section that now showcases these endorsements," the company explains.

Once done, to see who has endorsed you--LinkedIn says, "the'll notify you via email and on LinkedIn whenever you are endorsed."

"You can scroll to the bottom of your profile page under "Skills and Expertise" to see the faces of people who think you're great at what you do. You can also accept any new skills recommended by your peers that you may not have thought to include on your profile. Or you can also add a new skill by clicking on "add a skill" on your profile page," added LinkedIn.

LinkedIn also notes, they look forward to expanding Endorsements in all languages to all members over the next few weeks.
