On Friday LinkedIn added a "Jobs" tab to its groups. I first felt that since jobs are posted on many groups anyway this would allow to at least do some
sorting of group posts. (The worst, I think, are the "open networker, connect with me" posts that dilute good content on many groups.)
But then I thought that this provides an opportunity to create specifically job-posting-oriented groups
. So, on Saturday I announced a group Management Consulting Jobs
- this is the area of our expertise at Brain Gain Recruiting
By now, the group got over 2,000 people and growing. We posted some of our jobs under the Jobs tab and are getting some good results (and of course some irrelevant results.)
I also created a group Software Development Jobs
(which is another "hot" area for us and also my own background). I would be interested in having a co-manager for it; please let me know if you might be interested.
