Job Interview Questions You Should NOT Answer Or Ask | LinkedIn

LinkedIn never ceases to amaze with me the articles it has, especially about recruitment. Did you know some questions that may be asked in interviews are actually ILLEGAL in some parts of the world?

Looking at this list, I realised that I’ve been asked some of these questions before in some of my own interviews without realising they are not really relevant (or in some cases, legal).

Here are some commonly asked interview questions that are inappropriate and in fact illegal in many parts of the world:

  • Have you got children?

  • What is your age?

  • What is your citizen status?

  • What is your weight?

  • What is your financial status or credit rating?

  • Have you got any debts?

  • What is your family status?

  • Do you believe in God?

  • Where do you go to church?

  • Do you drink alcohol?

  • What do you do at the weekends?

  • What religious holidays do you observe?

  • What is your race?

  • Have you ever been arrested?
