With tens of millions of people on LinkedIn, finding new connections may seem daunting. That's where LinkedIn's People Search comes in handy.
Find this feature by choosing "People" from the drop-down menu, then clicking the magnifying glass. You'll see a number of helpful filters on the left side of the screen, including location, industry, current company, past company and school—use these to narrow your search criteria. Paid LinkedIn account members can also filter results by groups, years of experience, seniority level, Fortune 1,000 and more.
