How To Search Outside of a Geo-Area on LinkedIn

areas

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.

Most customers’ first choice while in need of desperate cash is to approach the traditional banks for personal loans. However not many are aware of the procedure the bank follows once they receive a loan application, in the name of background check.

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.
