Linkedin offers a facility wherein you can ask your colleagues to write a few words about you. Mostly it creates a kind of enhanced brand image of the individual endorsed.

Now some people don’t seem to understand the logic of these endorsements. I get requests for endorsements from contacts who would have become a linkedin contact a day ago and Bingo!! the request follows.

How do you handle this?

Well I typically don’t respond? I don’t see any point in going into a explanation as to why I cannot endorse him. If I have worked with you its different. But, getting endorsed by someone whom you dont know anything about or who doesn’t know anything about you except your brief resume.How is that?

Perhaps someday they will see light.
