The option will show your proficiencies along with recommendations and endorsements. According to Linkedin, 69% of people think that their skills are more important for them as compared to education while job seeking & more than 76% have been looking for hiring managers to verify their skills so that they can stand out from the crowd.
How to Take Test?
To take the test, you need the following:
- Goto the skill section of the profile
- Goto Take Skill Quiz
- Choose the available skill
- If you pass the test, you can display it over your profile along with badge.

Linkedin will also recommend a learning course to improve your skill in order to clear the test. If you pass, Linkedin will also send you relevant latest job recommendations as they are posted.
