Invitation to join
Yahoo Groups
If you are an Employer or a
Job-Seeker Participating in one
or more of our Local Meetings,
our Volunteers have probably
invited you to join our
Yahoo Groups.
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 - Digest - No Email)
• 4) You may 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.
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.
