I work in a non-client-facing role and only occasionally interact with suppliers/vendors and consultants. Generally I feel that my professional network is very small and thus I want to get to know more people, to discuss and interact, etc. even to keep up-to-date. I want to be known by the rest of the industry for my areas of expertise, and thought to use LI as one channel.
However, I got the impression that many people who have great and detailed LI profiles have them either because they are in heavily client-facing roles, entrepreneurs or - especially - are looking for new career opportunities. I don't want to give the impression of the latter to anyone reading my profile, most importantly not my employers.
What are good cues and clues on one's LI profile that could reassure an employer that one is not using the profile to attract recruiters and future job opportunities?
I am aware that there are settings to show/hide "Contact me for new job opportunities" but I thought there might be more subtle things, e.g. why would someone so satisfied with their job spend ages to write thorough details under each part of the profile? Plus, would someone satisfied with the company place more focus on describing/promoting the company rather than their own skills? Just asking.
