I am updating my profile because I would like to see what other jobs are out there. My company has a very strict policy regarding Linkedin. It states I can list my current position and a general description of my job. I am unclear on what general description of a job means?

I usually list the job description I was given when I first applied for the job... kind of like what I would put in a resume. I don't go into specific details regarding any projects I worked on. Listed below is what I have listed for the public. I use Linkedin to keep my resume up to date. Do you think it is too specific or fine? I don't want to get in trouble with my compliance department. I am hesitant to bring it to my manager as I don't want her to know I am looking for a position or have her escalate it to Compliance either if I am doing something wrong.

I read the policy handbook but there were no examples of what they meant by general description

Looks generic to me if that what you are going for. I am careful not to give away ideas even my own on linkedin. Our competitors can search those profiles and do corporate espionage. I do list quantifiable dollar benefits like cost savings that i have achieved, but i dont say how.

Thanks I am looking for it to be generic like a resume. If a recruiter or someone sees something they like they can contact me directly for more clarification
