Avoid talking about issues that may put you at odds with the interviewer’s own personal views, like politics or religion.
Also, steer clear of personal details that might make you seem unreliable, like family illnesses, difficult schedules, or potential housing moves.
It is illegal for employers to make a hiring decision based on a person’s race, gender, age, marital or family status, ethnic background, religion, appearance, or physical disabilities. Most interviewers are careful to avoid questions that ask for information that could be used unfairly against you. But, you can help yourself by not volunteering information that may be used unfairly.
