    @Josh: I doubt that you can link endorsements to job opportunities. Since being hired in junior positions a hiring manager is looking more at academic accomplishments, area of knowledge, enthusiasm, communication skills. And confidence in talking about the technical area they know and what don't know in an interview. Endorsements as indicator of depth of knowledge in a subject is what I mean about why I think they become worthless.

    Endorsements are like the 30 keyword points that people post on top of there CV, so recruiters put them forward for jobs they may like.

    Other than that. LinkedIn is great for connecting with recruiters. It helps you to get linked to the jobs that really are interested in. And that all comes from having a great write up of your interests, with your resume information. If you have a recommendation posted against one of your jobs, like an internship, it priceless.

  • @Billy,  I have roughly 10-12 friends who got great internships, jobs while in college in their industry, and also jobs right away after college using LinkedIn endorsements.  If you can build a relationship with someone very influential aka Chris Anderson :) and other people in your industry their professional endorsements of skills they see you possess is huge for employers to see.

    I have started a discussion on the LinkedIn DIY Drones Group that promotes the possibility of starting a winter version of the Sparkfun AVC here in Florida when the rest of the country is snowed in.:-)

    I think this chap has some good ideas for LinkedIn More LinkedIn fire here

    It would be great to see more folks on the official DIYD group contributing more. I certainly see many folks clicking through from LinkedIn to sUAS News. 

    Chris is one of their influencers

    IMHO, i think this is another example of how linkedIn endorsements are useless. The recommendations are much better, as it requires effort for people to describe why working with somebody was great experience. Endorsements have no barrier to give. LinkedIn actively pesters people to endorse. People just click away.

    I was discussing this just last night with a friend, and hiring manager at a very large local games company, and he said the same. Which means, people hiring don't see value. We agreed that we think linkedIn will potentially drop the feature.

    I'll definitely sign-up for the DIYDrones group, though, thats great use on linkedIn

    We have local group for British Columbia here
