I'm following the directions to export LinkedIn contacts and it does work, but the resulting export file has blank values for most of the fields, including city and state. Is there a way to export that does include this information?
No. You are getting all the possible data now. Sorry
As a recruiter, I've been trying to find an answer for this for years. There was at one point a way to do this with a LinkedIn API token but LinkedIn blocked this functionality in 2015. LinkedIn will never download the locations with the candidates and doing it manually would take 80+ hours of manual entry.
Here at Moonlight we worked on this problem for over a year and thoroughly searched for a company or software that can do this. To our knowledge, there is no one that can do this
Moonlight Strategic Search has developed a way to take any LinkedIn excel contacts file and fill out the locations of the people. You can order the service here:
