Interviewing Question Resources

While the interviewing process is vital to hiring qualified employees, few interviewers are properly trained in conducting adequate interviews. Interviewers often attempt to ask questions that will provide them with enough information to determine which candidate is best suited for the job. However, it is important for the interviewers to remember to stay within the federal guidelines of what they are allowed to ask. The federal government prohibits employers from making hiring decisions on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, sex, disability, veteran status, national origin, age, political affiliation and genetic information. Therefore, interview questions surrounding these topics are off limits. While improper questions asked by an interviewer might be a simple oversight, it could be mistaken for an intentional case of discrimination. These resources provide some general guidelines on the kinds of questions that should and should not be asked during the selection and interview process.
