Got skills? If LinkedIn agrees with you, it may help bolster your profile on the professional network.

LinkedIn began rolling out LinkedIn Skill Assessments as a new way for members to validate skills they possess, showcase their proficiency and become more discoverable to opportunities.

The professional network said in a blog post Tuesday that early results showed that candidates who completed LinkedIn Skill Assessments were about 30% more likely to get hired, adding that its research found that 69% of professionals believe their skills are more important than college education when job seeking, and over 76% wish there was a way for hiring managers to verify their skills so that they can stand out.

LinkedIn said each LinkedIn Skill Assessment is developed in partnership with LinkedIn Learning industry and subject matter experts “through a rigorous content creation and review process.”
