LinkedIn Groups Tweaked

LinkedIn made some adjustments to LinkedIn Groups to ensure that listed jobs are relevant and to provide users of the professional networking service with easier access to career opportunities and advice from other members. More from product manager Andrew Hill via the LinkedIn Blog:

Jobs: LinkedIn Jobs are specifically tailored to the group. All of these jobs are either shared into the group by its members, or match keywords specified by the group manager, so they’re guaranteed to be relevant. Plus, you can see how you’re connected, and refine your results with faceted search to find the perfect opportunity.

Career Discussions: This is the best place to share career opportunities and advice with other members of a group. Organic postings from the old Groups “Jobs” tab can now be found here.

Group members can now more easily discover high-quality, relevant career opportunities within their groups. Group managers can improve the experience for their members by setting up a daily targeted job feed. Job posters can more easily reach the right professional audience. It’s a win for everyone.
