In an article that posted to FOX Business today, writer Kathryn Tuggle explored “How to Answer Tricky – and Illegal – Interview Questions” and she asked Talener CEO Mike Dsupin for his input.
Mike acknowledged that it can be difficult for non HR hiring managers to realize when a conversation may turn from trying to find a common ground into potentially illegal territory. Mike said “Interviewers are looking for a person’s ability to shift gears and how they handle tricky questions. An interview is about finding common ground with someone and that’s a good thing. But lines get crossed, and if you’re looking for a job you have to be prepared for certain things.”
The main thing to remember is that whatever happens with your interview and whatever questions you may get asked: Know yourself, know your resume and be ready to answer everything that comes your way honestly.
