maximizing LinkedIn, making the most of LinkedIn, using LinkedIn to find a job,
Do you want to join the exact right LinkedIn groups where the hiring managers of your target jobs are members?  

You can and it’s so easy to do! And, best of all, by joining such groups, you can learn about, befriend and impress these employers with your participation in group discussions.

Here’s how:

Visit his/her profile and scroll to the Interests and then select Groups. Click the join link on any or all of the person’s groups. Some groups may require you to be part of their local (physical) association or have particular career experience that makes you suitable for the group, but most will just accept you no questions asked. Once you’ve been accepted, you can start participating in group discussions.
