Hey @langladed, check out LinkedIn Connect. It's meant to work in companies employees page rather than your personal network page but has the feature you're looking for.

If you want to adapt it to this code somthing like this should do the trick:

+  // keywords to filter employees in specific positions
+  const POSITION_KEYWORDS = ["ceo"];
   // retrieves array "Connect" buttons
   function selectButtonElements() {
-    return [...document.querySelectorAll("button span")].filter(a =>
+    return [...document.querySelectorAll("button span")].filter(a => {
+      let cardInfo = a.offsetParent.innerText.split("\n");
+      let roleIndex = cardInfo.length > 3 ? 3 : 1;
+      let role = cardInfo[roleIndex];
+       return (
-        a.textContent.includes("Connect")
+        a.textContent.includes("Connect") &&
+        POSITION_KEYWORDS.some((r) => role.match(new RegExp(r, "gi")))
       );
+    });
   }

Bonjour,

the script seems to scroll but not to click. Is it still working ?

I keep getting this message in console logs :

New Connections:0 Failed clicks:0

Merci

It first scrolls BULK_SCROLL_COUNT times then starts clicking
