Ask LH: How Can I Tame My Soft Drink Addiction?

Ask LH: Should I Embellish Skills In My LinkedIn Profile?

Dear Lifehacker, I’ve nearly finished my university degree in engineering, so keeping my LinkedIn up to date is of course crucial. But I wonder, how skilled should I be to list a skill on LinkedIn? For example, when it comes to renewable energy, I know more than the average person. But when compared to people working in the industry, I probably don’t not that much! So what shouldn’t I include on my profile?
