I’ve created a LinkedIn group for Lobsters users to help make connections, post about their availability for employment, and find interesting coworkers:
If you have an account, you are welcome to join and post. Please do kibitz my first draft of the rules:
Job postings must have a company name, work description, location with indication if remote is OK, and salary range. If your post lacks any of these four things, you will be banned. No warnings.
If you log in to LinkedIn weekly or more frequently, please volunteer as a moderator to help approve membership requests and moderate posts.
Finally, yes, everyone knows LinkedIn is very frustrating in a lot of ways. Unfortunately, network effects have made them the de facto official professional networking tool of much of the world. Practical alternatives to helping the Lobsters community find jobs and coworkers are very welcome, especially given that the
job tag is almost unused here.
