Intrusive Personal Questions Don’t Belong in Job Interviews

This story by Wen Jing-Lin (a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Tokyo) discusses her experience of being on the receiving end of inappropriate personal questions during job interviews. She argues that employers have a responsibility to push back against cultural norms and assumptions to ensure that all job candidates are treated equally during the interview process. While intrusive questions may be more culturally acceptable in certain countries, she states that decision-makers still have a duty to build a discrimination-free environment for job candidates that won't push them away from seeking out new employment opportunities.
