How to Search a LinkedIn Group
After you join a LinkedIn group, you’ll probably want to see who’s in the group and how the group members are connected to you. After all, the point of the LinkedIn groups is to stay in touch with like-minded individuals and have them be part of your extended LinkedIn network. Being able to effectively search a LinkedIn group is a valuable skill to master.
1. From the top navigation bar, roll your mouse over the Groups link and then click the My Groups link in the drop-down menu that appears.
2. Look through the list of groups on the My Groups page, scroll down to the group’s header, and roll your mouse over the group’s Go To drop-down arrow. Then, choose the accompanying Members option.
This brings up a list of members in the group, sorted by how many degrees they are away from you in your LinkedIn network.
3. (Optional) on the left-hand side of the Members screen, at the bottom of the Search Members box, click the Advanced Search link and add other search criteria to get a more targeted results list.
This brings up a Find People page. You can see that the search is automatically limited to members of your group. Now you can scroll down the page and use more of the filters provided as search requirements, such as names, companies, user types, locations, and so on.
4. Click the Search button.
Your search is carried out according to the refined search criteria you entered.
