The process to create a group on LinkedIn wasn’t difficult for me. Once logged into LinkedIn, I selected the groups link on the left hand side of the page. If you’re already a member of groups you’ll see those groups listed under the link. After clicking the link, another screen popped up with the groups I am a member of as well as an option to create a group. I selected “create a new group” option which allowed me to enter a name for the group as well as a description. I also selected the privacy option to have the group unlisted in search results.
I think being apart of groups on LinkedIn is a good way to expand your network as well as learn new things. I’m currently apart of a few groups for Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access, which I joined because I use both tools heavily for work and it’s good to have connections if you run into issues that you aren’t able to figure out and also for new ideas. I’m sure I will continue to use this feature to join or create groups especially when I began to study for my certifications.
