|"Actually, LinkedIn Endorsements don't mean that much."|
I don't really have that many skills, so I subdivided the one or two I do have as many ways as possible. For example, there's "novelist," "writer," and "reader." Then I have "fiction," "fiction-writer," "fiction-reader." "Re-writer," "re-reader." "Looking for glasses." "Finding them." If you think about it hard enough, you can take a single skill and divide it into an infinite number of categories.
It's tempting to claim a skill like "Brain Surgery" or "Rocket Scientist" and see how many people would endorse me, but that could put me in a sticky situation. Suppose somebody needed a brain surgeon and went to LinkedIn to find one? No thanks. So instead I just added the new skill, "Sex Symbol." I figure what really makes you a Sex Symbol is having people believe you're a Sex Symbol. Also, my self-esteem could use a boost. Perhaps because she sees me so much around the house in draw-string shorts, black socks, and a tee-shirt with a mustard stain, Nancy no longer appreciates what a sexy Sex Symbol I am. So when you go to LinkedIn and it asks you to endorse my Sex Symbolism, please click yes. Click twice, if possible.
