LinkedIn is full of feature rich content outside of connecting with people you don’t know.  As a recruiter you can leverage groups in a couple of ways to help better your business. You can join industry based groups in line to the types of individuals that you are recruiting or you can recruiting and HR groups to help better your skills and engage in meaningful conversations.

I try to keep a strong mix of the two but how you build your groups network is squarely on you. Regardless there is an etiqutte to participating in these groups, especially as a recruiter. The most important part is to remember that the groups member s are not necessarily looking to be recruited so you must play nice.

Below in order only to groups membership size are the most active HR and Recruitment groups on LinkedIn. I am defining active as the most “active disscussions” and membership activities.
