On LinkedIn’s old interface, you could click on skills listed on a person’s profile and get whisked away to a Skills page that provided key insights into that particular skill.
LinkedIn’s redesigned desktop experience has removed the link to the skills pages.
Did the LinkedIn developers simply forget to include the link? Is LinkedIn planning on retiring the Skills pages? Or are they still developing this part of the new design? I do not know.
HOWEVER, the good news is that the Skill pages are still accessible, even though they are not linked to the skills on a person’s profile. In order to access these Skills pages– you need the direct link:
Voila! Now you can use the Skills pages to do keyword research and see related skills. You can discover popular Pulse articles about the skill and by clicking on the author link, learn more about key influencers. You can also expand your network by seeing who on LinkedIn has the skills you need.
