Heading into an interview is a nerve-wracking experience. You may feel under pressure to answer all of the questions that the interviewer sends at you perfectly so you can stand out as a candidate. But be careful! Sometimes your interviewer may be asking for information that they’re not entitled to.

Here are five questions that you shouldn’t answer in an interview.

1. “How old are you? What is your background?”

2. “What is your maiden name?”

3. “Do you have a disability? How much sick leave did you take in your last job?”

4. “Do you drink? Have you ever used drugs?”

5. “Are you a member of a union? Do you plan on joining one?”

When is it okay to ask?

What can you do if you get asked any of these questions?
