One of the areas I always do research around, regardless of the type of role or industry, is LinkedIn Groups. I have found the information and candidates through this method for every kind of search.
Searching for LinkedIn Groups can be helpful in a few different ways, but what we will cover in this post is how you can use them to identify LinkedIn profiles via search engines such as Google and Bing. LinkedIn members join groups because of interest or experience in the topic the group is based around. Because of this they can be great ways of targeting your search, similar to what you might do with target companies.
