Did you know that LinkedIn has over 1.5 million
groups? On LinkedIn you can join as many as 50
groups, yet most people do not take advantage of
this opportunity. The average LinkedIn member
belongs to only seven groups.
LinkedIn Group Benefits
There are six compelling reasons you should start
joining groups right away.
1. You Can InMail for Free
When you are a member of a group, you can mes-
sage with other members for free. Instead of using
expensive InMail communications, this alone is a
good reason to join a group. You will benefit greatly
from this as you build your network and communicate
with other members.
2. You Distinguish Yourself
There are dozens of computer-related groups
including ones focused on:
• Service Management
• Computer Science
• Applications Development
• Mobile Platforms
• Android Developer
• iOS Developer
By opening and participating in discussions, you
add to your personal brand and showcase your expert-
ise which increases your search rankings and employer
Statistics show that group participants get four
times more profile views than those who do not par-
You can describe a recent challenge or technical
trick you used, or point to a white paper you wrote.
Describe your firm's experience in establishing security
for mobile devices. Talk about a work-around you
came up with in a windows migration. This is a
simple way to build a competitive advantage in the
job search world.
3. You Can Find Jobs
In addition to the groups focused on specialty
areas, there are hundreds of companies posting job
openings in groups, especially those that are specif-
ically focused on job searching and networking.
• IT Specialist Enterprise Group - 145,000 mem-
• Jobs: Job Openings, Job Leads, and Job Connec-
tions group and the Information Technology: IT Net-
working, Forum and Jobs group and you will find
dozens of job openings, job fair information and
There are many more, even niche groups focused
on cloud computing, big data, mobile application
development and IT governance. Much more effective
and real-time than job boards, this should be included
as a must in your job search plan.
4. Recruiters Look for Talent There
In-house and outside recruiters look for talent in
LinkedIn group discussions. They search for thought
leaders or people with clear expertise in a specific
field or skill set.
The more you participate in group discussions,
the higher your ranking is on LinkedIn and the more
likely you will be to get a recruiter call.
5. You Can Get Answers to Problems
Just as you can highlight your accom-
plishments, you can also pose questions or
ask for advice with thorny problems. Think-
ing of moving to an EMC SAN? Setting up
a PMO? Comparing ERP or CRM systems?
You can ask the groups about their expe-
rience to help you make sound decisions.
6. You Increase Your Network
Once you have built a presence, you will
find that people will want to connect with
you. These may be recruiters, decision mak-
ers and other technical contributors and the
more connections you have, the easier it is
to network into that next position.
Finding and joining groups is easy. From
your LinkedIn Home page, follow these steps:
• 1. Go to the search bar at the top of the page.
• 2. Type in your subject---for example,
• 3. Click on the Groups about IT Security
result, and you will see there are 14,800+
groups for that subject.
So how do you cull that down? The
description of each group in the search
results will tell you how many total members
there are in the group and how many dis-
cussions in the recent month. It will also
show you how many people in your expand-
ed network are members. In general, avoid
groups with few members and discussions.
Once you have found a group you like, click
on the JOIN button. Note that some groups
allow almost anyone to join while others are
more selective. It may be a few days before
you get a response in a group that is.
Far more effective than just posting your
resume onto job boards, using LinkedIn
groups can enhance your value and aware-
ness to employers.
