As a group manager, you can add a "Jobs" tab to your LinkedIn group, allowing select members of your group to share job postings that are relevant to the group. Members may suggest posts to be featured in the jobs tab or may share relevant job postings from LinkedIn's job's page.

Posting Jobs to Groups

Create a discussion item describing the job posting, including any relevant information that potential applicants may need to know. Be tactful and keep the post on topic regarding the nature of the group.

Click the title of the discussion item in the group.

Select the icon shaped like a flag next to the title, then select "Flag as Job."

Sharing Jobs to Groups

Locate the job posting that you want to share to your group on LinkedIn Jobs.

Click the "Share job" link.

Select the box next to "LinkedIn group(s)" and click "Share."


You can expand the audience for your job posting by placing an ad on LinkedIn Jobs.

You may ask the group manager for permission to flag articles for inclusion in your group's jobs tab.
