If asked illegal questions (about your race, age, ethnicity, and so forth) be careful not to offend the employer; answer as gracefully as possible. A woman who’s asked her age, for example, can demur with humor with something along the lines of “A lady never tells her age.” This sidesteps the question with a minimum of fuss. Be careful with these sorts of questions should they come up. Although you may decide you don’t want to work for a company that doesn’t respect lawful hiring practices, you also don’t want to make a bad name for yourself in the industry by reacting poorly.
