I'd like to share a tip on how to search LinkedIn for the members outside of a certain geographical area.
There are at least two good reasons to search outside of an area:
1. If you search by keywords, with no location specified, you are likely to see the top results from your own area - LinkedIn thinks that finding people who live nearby is a high priority.
To illustrate, here's an example search from an account, whose owner resides in the San…Continue

For as long as I can remember (probably as long as they've been in existence) one way I've kept tabs on the job market and trends in general is through active job alerts from various job boards.
I know, #NerdAlert right?
