Lee is the Chief Operating Officer of Wonsulting, a company aimed at helping others through their career journey, and often shares tips for bettering yourself professionally on his account.

“Google search ‘LinkedIn skill assessment answers github,’” he instructed, answering the stitched video’s question. After clicking the first link, users will allegedly have the answers to all of the skill assessments on LinkedIn’s platform. 

LinkedIn skill assessments are often used by employers and those hoping to beef up their resumes. Each assessment consists of 15 multiple-choice questions, according to the site. The assessment topics range from technical and business skills to even design skills.

“Use sparingly,” Lee wrote in the caption. 

In the comments section, users shared their thoughts on the thought of “cheating” in the job search.

“That’s not a life hack… That’s a cheat code for career mode,” one user said. 

“Wouldn’t consider this unethical since most hiring practices have become borderline unethical,” another commented.

“Ok but then eventually someone will expect you to know the stuff,” a third user said.
