To add another aspect: if there is a profile and has activities, it can also support me to steer the interview in specific directions. Maybe I see that they are interested or even experts in certain topics, which are relevant to our business and work, I can prepare questions and discussion starters beyond the regular ones.
But you can also include your interests and domain expertise in your application, and then the profile is not needed.
