1. Age: A recruiter/hiring manager can probably figure this out if they really want to but contrary to popular belief most of us do not sit at our desks calculating your age. This question should never be asked during an interview as it could be discriminatory.
2. Marital Status: Again this is not a qualification to be hired. Your performance on the job is not determined by whether you are married or single.
3. Health: If your health situation does not directly impact the people around you then there is no reason to divulge it. Also, remember there is the American’s With Disability Act that prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities and requires that reasonable accommodations be made.
4. Children: Again no one’s business except yours. If you need to have a flexible work schedule and that is part of the company’s’ benefits then yes go ahead but if they are just asking to ask then you do not have to answer and certainly do not put it on your resume.
5. Your Picture: It would be wonderful to think you are judged only on the content of your resume but right or wrong once your picture is on the resume it will be the first thing that catches the recruiter/hiring manager’s eye.
Make sure before you interview that you know all the questions someone should or should not ask you. If in normal conversation you freely give the information that is different but if asked point blank how old you are then I would answer “how is this relevant to the position?” You may not get the job but would you want to work for that company anyway?
Have a great evening!!
