Before you head to an interview, it’s important to be aware of the questions that recruiters and employers shouldn’t be asking you. A job interview is designed to help employers work out whether or not you’re the most suitable person for a role. This means that the questions you’re asked should relate directly or indirectly to your ability to perform the role, says Trent Hancock, Principal of Jewell Hancock Employment Lawyers. “This means that employers cannot ask questions about a candidate’s personal attributes if they are irrelevant to the role being applied for.”A personal attribute includes questions about your age, gender, ethnicity or sexuality. “In most cases, the answer to these questions will not shed any light whatsoever on your ability to actually do the job,” Hancock says.
