As of today 12/9/2011 there are 1,133,327 Groups in LinkedIn. Some say, a Group or two for everyone regardless of your interest, career or business.
Groups are where people gather virtually, but many meet in real life as well. These people gather in these groups to share relevant and interesting information. Groups is the best place for you to Contribute, Collaborate, Connect and Cram with other LinkedIn members.
Good Groups are the ones where the members believe transparent participation provides a mutually beneficial environment for all who join. The Triad area Groups are very well attended by good people. I recommend that you join any of the Triad area Groups, where relevant to you.
For our Job Seeker friends in the Triad area of North Carolina (High Point, Greensboro & Winston-Salem) I know of at least 10 active and open groups worth joining and participating in.
NCWiseman – Sharing Job search skills and resources
NCWorks – Connecting Talent to Jobs
Job Openings Job Leads & Job Connections – Beyond the Triad
All of these groups are good places to hear about job openings around the Triad.
Join relevant groups in LinkedIn & begin participating.
Note – Let me know if you find any other useful Job Search Groups on LinkedIn and I will update this listing for others
