Quick Tip on Endorsements

LinkedIn has a new easy-schmeezy endorsement system. I learned about it when I started getting e-mails in my e-mail boxes that people had endorsed me. I found the system had a problem, though. When I clicked through on the notification, I found a wonderful feature that made it easy to endorse my LinkedIn contacts, but no easy way to thank those who had endorsed me.
Mea culpa! One of those LinkedIn friends who thanked me for an endorsement told me that I needed to scroll to the very bottom of the page. Duhhhh. There I found a list with avatars of all those who had endorsed me and they were listed by the categories they had endorsed. All I needed to do was click on them to send a thank you message. It's an easy-access click to those who have done you a favor. And something so basic as a scroll could have saved me some anguish. If you want to explore this new feature, it's easy to just start endorsing. Find me at http://www.linkedin.com/in/carolynhowardjohnson
