Hiding endorsements and recommendations on LinkedIn

Use these 5-step guides to help you turn endorsements and recommendations off in LinkedIn.

When someone receives your name from a friend, colleague, attorney, CPA or other trusted adviser, it’s safe to expect that he or she will look you up online before making contact. Today, LinkedIn has become a large enough network that it’s very likely your profile will show up in those search results, ahead of anything else. Having a complete, professional profile is critical to making a strong impression when a new prospective client “meets” you online for the first time.

Fortunately, there is a very simple way to hide these features on your profile so you can own that first digital impression while still following compliance guidelines. Below are two 5-step guides that will help you turn these features off so you can feel comfortable building out your professional network on LinkedIn:
