LinkedIn has over 12,000 groups with the keyword “jobs” that are all free to join. If you are a job seeker, LinkedIn should be in your top 3 resources you are using for your job search. In addition to using LinkedIn itself, joining groups is a must for job seekers because not only can you connect with more decision makers, but there are thousands of job postings listed in groups that a job seeker could be missing out on.
Here are 5 LinkedIn groups that I highly recommend job seekers to join:
