A disturbing new trend: in three freelance digital marketing interviews I’ve had recently with small businesses, I’ve been asked personal questions such as if I was married.
The Hiring Managers wanted to “learn more about me personally” in the interviews. I don’t think that information was relevant to whether or not I was qualified for the job.
In one interview, the Hiring Manager asked me if I was planning on having kids soon.
Let’s just say that none of those types of questions are appropriate. I think we need more professional expectations in the workplace.
