So you’ve set up your LinkedIn profile…now what?
One of the best resources within LinkedIn are “groups”. You can join groups to take part in discussions with colleagues within your industry, answer questions, share best practices, network, etc.
The folks at Beyond–Recruitment Strategists recently came up with a list of the Top 5 groups that all recruiters need to join…
1. Linked: HR– Topics for Discussion: Job Offers, Recruiting Strategies & Processes, Career Management, Retention, Human Resources Trends & Technologies, HRIS, Best Practices, Employment Laws, Retirement, Compensation & Benefits, Health Care, M&A, Downsizing, Headhunting, and other key HR topics.
2. ERE.net– A networking group of over 12,000 human resource professionals.
3. eRecruiting– An excellent group for sourcing of candidates. Over 7,000 members.
4. OpenReq– This group features 14,000 members who are dedicated to serving the staffing and recruiting industry.
