Dear family members, friends, church folks, random people, and fly-by acquaintances,
Please don’t endorse me on Linkedin. I only accepted your connection because I know you or your page was pseudo-impressive. But in those instances, you don’t really know me. Not professionally, at least. We’ve never worked together. You might know what I do through this wonderful profile or maybe someone told you. That person could have been me, honestly. Still not enough reason for you to endorse me.
See, endorsements were made for professionals to confirm their knowledge in a certain skill or duty. And I get those from my colleagues and supervisors and I appreciate them, I do. I mean, I even appreciate your endorsements. I know they come from a good place. Just not that genuine if you really want to think about it.
Don’t take this wrong at all. I thank you for wanting everyone to know that I am actually skilled in Photoshop or video editing. Just… wait until you’ve watched me do this before you click that button at the top of your profile.
