LinkedIn is a fine place to host your online CV and previous work experience. However, the platform could do better to implement features which legitimize the claims made by the individuals. This could be in the form of organisations signing up and providing an approved “tick” which confirms the individual has worked within the organisation at the role and level they have on their profile. Although, asking organisations to sign up and audit existing or previous employees without some kind of reward is another matter!

The existing endorsements don’t really mean much – a like for a like – so a more formal feature might makes things have more meaning.
