Starting a Discussion on LinkedInFrom the menu bar; choose the “Groups” button, then choose from the menu (for thisexample I choose the Department of Defense), you will then be directed to the groups’homepage.To start a discussion in LinkedIn, you need to be a member of a group. This is one of theeasier tasks within LinkedIn. Find a group that is similar in nature to your profession and/or skill set and click “Join Group”.
In the chat bar you have many options: 1. You can either ask a question 2. Attach an article from a website 3. Combine 1 and 2 for even more engagement 4. You can even post job openings at your place of employment 5. Or just have a conversation with others in the groupAlmost anything can be posted to start a discussion. Just keep in mind the type of groupyou are posting in. Every group, especially the private ones have moderators that don’tlike when people discuss something that does not add to the value of the group or haveany relevance to the group. For example, having marketing discussions in a finance clubwill not work and the end result could be your dismissal from the group.
