Kinda like this, but different.
According to a recent survey from CareerBuilder.com, 1 out of 5 employers
failed to read my 2011 blog post about interview questions to avoid, have asked a question in a job interview only to find out later that it was illegal to ask.
Indeed, the poll indicates that only 1 in 3 hiring managers recognized that questions, such as the ones listed below, should be off-limits:
- What is your religious affiliation?
- Are you pregnant?
- What is your race, color or ethnicity?
- How old are you?
- Are you disabled?
Whether you’re in the 20% listed above, the 1 in 3 below that, or just need a refresher on hiring inquiries that are off limits, check out my post, “What would Kenny Powers do? Interview questions to avoid.”
