Do recruiters look at LinkedIn skill assessments? You are not required to complete the evaluation, but doing so can help you stand out and demonstrate that you have the desired skills of an ideal candidate. Recruiters won't be able to see your score, but they can search for people who have passed specific skill assessments as part of their search parameters and filters. If you're a recruiter, make sure to bring these completed questionnaires to your client's attention. They'll really appreciate having a skills check and their candidates will enjoy a faster and possibly less expensive hiring process.
Linkedin is viewed as a trusted site by ranking archives and giant companies, but there is no measurable criteria for how skill badges impact the hiring rate. They can be used to give first impressions of human resources, but from a technical point of view, they do not serve to demonstrate a person's technical strength. LinkedIn won't tell you this, but the addition of evaluations is the result of LinkedIn's acquisition of an online testing company, ScoreBeyond. So, if you're looking to make yourself more attractive to recruiters, consider taking some skill assessments on LinkedIn.
It may help you stand out from the crowd and increase your chances of being noticed.
