6 Foolproof Ways to Use LinkedIn Groups to Land Your Next Job | US News by Arnie Fertig

You probably have received the first memo: Being on LinkedIn is of key importance inyour job search. It is crucial that you have a complete profile that presents your personal brand, accomplishments at each position you have held, skills, academic background and more.
