Summary

The potential for being asked to supply information that is not legally useable in the employment decision-making process is a factor that can dramatically increase stress during the selection interview. Research suggests that both employers and students are often unaware of what constitutes an illegal question. Treatment of illegal questioning in textbooks varies and includes: (1) none; (2) discussion of illegal question areas; (3) presentation of advice; and (4) providing a range of response strategies and exemplary responses. Widening the range of useable response strategies and the creativity of using them can be achieved by teaching students what constitutes illegal questioning; using eight response strategies and exemplary questions for each; and providing practice applying the strategies through brainstorming and sharing with the larger group. (Four tables of data are included; 30 references are attached.) (RS)
