When your squash partner 'endorses' your coding skills on LinkedIn...

Recruiters

I constantly get updates from LinkedIn that recruiter X or Y were endorsed by person Z or whoever else for "High frequency trading" or "RedHat" or "Cisco" or "Active Directory" or whatever (technical) else.

Can anybody tell me why do the recruiters put such skills in their profiles anyway?

(I am a techie so I do not put "Recruiting" in mine).

Not really that awful

Apart from two really stupid car chase chapters the other missions are fun (I do not play online)

Not bad

Scored 32/50.

Not too bad, actually better than I thought it would be.

Some of you do remember your stuff though (you with your 40s), well done!

Useless when looking for a job

As in the title (currently looking for a new job due to our "merger" with a US company == redundancy).

Not a single connected recruiter landed me an interview via LinkedIn. All the interesting jobs seem to be on Jobserve or efinancialcareers. However I can see that some prospective employers look at my profile, so that justifies it for me.
