Raven – LinkedIn Information Gathering Tool

  -c COMPANY, –company COMPANY       Input the Company name. Ex: Pizzahut

-s STATE, –state STATE             Input the State initials. Ex: uk , al , etc…

-d DOMAIN, –domain DOMAIN          Input the domain name. Ex: gmail.com

-p PAGES, –pages PAGES             Number of google pages to navigate. Ex: 3

-lu LUSERNAME –lusername LUSERNAME    The linkedin username to use.

  -lp LPASSWORD, –lpassword LPASSWORD   The linekdin password to use.
For example , if the company that you want to search is Evil Corp and the state is Albania the parameters would be:

python raven.py -c ‘Evil Corp’ -s al -d evilcorp.al

If you are not sure what the state is you can put www .
You can also specify how many pages of Google Search you want to search with the -p parameters

python raven.py -c ‘Evil Corp’ -s al -d evilcorp.al -p 3

The command above will search for results on 3 first pages of google.
The tool actually is a scraper that works with selenium. It uses a google dork to extract the LinkedIn url’s and then it exctracts data from them. As you may know Linkedin has different subdomains for country-s.

  For example : al.linkedin.com is for Albania, uk.linkedin.com is for United Kingdom etc.

The state parameter is actually the subdomain of the LinkedIn website.
