This Week in Career Advice: Interview Questions You Shouldn’t Answer

It’s not uncommon for interviewers to cross a line when asking questions. However, did you know some of these inappropriate questions are often illegal?

Generally speaking, the following topics should never come up in a job interview:

  • Age
  • Marital status or family
  • National origin
  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Religion
  • Disability

If you’re really uncomfortable, you can pursue legal action through your local Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) office.
