A job interview is always challenging and stressful because we have to answer a lot of questions and we have to answer them right. But there are such questions that you do not have to answer at all. In fact, hiring manager cannot ask some questions that are inappropriate and promote discriminatory hiring processes. Here are 8 of them:
#1 - How old are you?
Questions about your age are simply illegal. Everything a hiring manager needs to know about your age is that you are 18, so you are old enough for work. Questions about age are illegal and the interviewer doesn't have a right to ask you about age directly or indirectly. They can't also ask your graduation year. Of course you can answer this question if you feel comfortable, but if you don't - you don't have to.
