I need all the UK companies under Linkedin to be put in a database with the details below. The project excludes companies outside of the UK. Details to be extracted are: (sometimes one or more of these sections do not exist on the company page)
- The name of the company
- "Overview" section
- Number of "followers"
- "HQ Region" - city and country need to be extracted in separate columns
- "Company Size"
- "No of employees"
- A link towards the linked-in profile of the company (please save the profile locally)
- Number of "Current Employees" registered on linkedin
- "Parent company" name
- "Headquarters Address": in one column please put the overall address, in another one please extract the Country only of that field
The data should be put in an Excel spreadsheet. The programmer needs to have already done something similar with Linkedin and must know how to do that precisely. The programmer must be familiar with linkedin limits - both in terms of search results (500, so the program will need to break down the search per industry and company size to be sure to grab every single company) and in terms of the number of company pages that can be accessed on a given timeframe from an account / IP address (I do not know if there is any limit of that type in Linkedin).
This is a very easy task and easy money for someone who has already done something similar. I do not care which technologies are used, it could be any tool or programming language (although I think Excel VBA is not robust enough). The program must work quickly - extracting the data each time I run the program should take less than a day and not weeks.
To prove that you can do it quickly, please send me a sample data of 600 companies in an excel spreadsheet with basic columns (name of company, company size, website – no need to give me all the details for this sample file). Send me that file together with your confirmation that you are sure that can perform the overall task. Final deliverable is the final file with the companies, the code of the program and the procedure you followed to do that.
A revision; I also need a list of the 'current employees' of the company and their position, if they have a linkedin profile.
