Joining groups

There are over 400,000 groups on LinkedIn. Yes, that's right over 400,000. You can find a group for just and any interest, personal or professional. You can join up to 50 groups and even if you don't join that many you should join a bunch of them. It's a way to learn about business areas, meet people through the discussions, post your own questions and learn things.

Go to the upper right hand-side where it says People. Hit the drop down button and the last on the list is Groups. Start filling in the box your interest and see what comes up. When you join a group make sure to check that you want the weekly digest not the daily one. You don't want your email Inbox to be swamped.
