Project Description:
Hi,
Need to find the "Employees on LinkedIn" information (example in the jpg file attached) for each company in the excel file attached below.

One option to do this is the following:
You need to sniff the http traffic of a company page in linked-in,
And find the GET request uri that created a jason response from linked-in server in which the employee number is found.
After this, you need to write a simple program in JAVA/C# which send a GET request the the former GET uri you found, and just parse the 200 OK response in code.
The parsing of the response can be done by simple REGEX which capture the number

Any other option is also acceptable

Thanks
