As a summer Intern, I LinkedIn-endorsed my associate in Microsoft Outlook and nothing else, now he seems upset at me?

Last week of internship, my associate endorsed me on linkedin under the skills section in Excel, financial analysis, and commercial real estate investments.

In return I endorsed him in microsoft outlook as a joke. Now he won't give me any good quality work to do? Earlier today I asked if there was anything I could underwrite and he said he'll give it to the other intern? The other intern is in ops, doesn't even know how to open excel I'm pretty sure.

What can I do to remedy this situation?

You should have endorsed him for something like Flag Football.

If you're socially competent, find a way to bring it up in casual conversation and see what his real feelings on it are. Apologize or give him shit (lightheartedly) accordingly.

Endorse him for other things and then bring it up like "I was waiting for you to complain about the Outlook endorsement haha, thought you'd get a kick out of it". Something like that should smooth things over, if this is in fact the reason he's upset with you (if he even is upset with you).
