   Why do you need a Yahoo
      Profile (Account)?
• 1) You will be able to view the archive of
  messages (job leads, job fairs, articles).
• 2) You will be able to specify an alternate
  Email Address that you monitor regularly.
• 3) You will be able to control Message
  Delivery (Individual - No Email)
• 4) You will be able to specify Message
  Format.
At first some of the information seemed invasive,
but my name, gender, birthdate and postal code
information is not displayed any where that I have
seen.
The process of creating a profile does create an
email account; BUT, like me, you do not have to use
it, ever.

  New User? [Sign Up]
  (If you do not already
  have a Yahoo Profile.)
Note:# When first creating your Yahoo account 'Profile', you can experiment
with minimizing the information you give.
Years ago I did specify Birthdate, Gender, Industry, Title, Specialization, Time
Zone
For my email address, I do have a yahoo address that I have never used and
my primary email address.
For contact information: My first and last name is required (* marks required
fields) I also gave a name prefix.
For Home Information: City, State, Zip(* required) and Country.
For Work/School Information: Country.
At the bottom of the form, I see the note:
  Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required for most Yahoo! services.
I did not complete some of those because I am not buying any Yahoo services.
1) Signing up seems to require:
  a) a First Name and a Last Name
  b) Gender
  c) a Birthdate: Month, Day, Year
  d) a Postal Code
 2) Select a unique Yahoo_ID
(Alternatives will be suggested if not unique.)
3) Specify a password.
4) You may also specify an
       alternative email address.
       (I have never used theirs)
  (provide one that you will monitor regularly)
5) You will also be asked to select 2
        Security Questions and give
        their answers.
6) The code assures them that you
        are a person and not an
        electronic robot.
7) Agree to their terms.
