LinkedIn has announced that it’s rolling out Skill Assessments, a new way for users to validate their skills to showcase proficiency and boost discoverability. Early results show candidates who complete LinkedIn Skill Assessments are significantly more likely (~30%) to get
hired, according to LinkedIn’s blog.
Each Skill Assessment is constructed through a rigorous content creation and review process in partnership with LinkedIn Learning industry and subject matter experts. Once candidates have completed an assessment, a badge will be displayed on their profile in LinkedIn Recruiter and LinkedIn Jobs so hirers are able to quickly identify and verify skill proficiency.
