LinkedIn endorsements - What's their value?

bellen

I'm getting a lot of LinkedIn endorsements each day. What can I do with these? (And this onslaught of endorsements seems a little silly to me at the moment).

Same here, I've gotten a lot too. I have no idea what their value is, I don't pay a lot of attention to LinkedIn. I just see the email notifications. It's nice people are doing it, but I don't know if it would make a difference with a potential employer. Thanks though to the folks that did them, I guess it doesn't hurt, right?
