Strange Application

I just applied for a job as a Curriculum Designer for a nonprofit and was surprised by some questions. Even though applicants didn’t have to answer these optional questions, it felt so strange to be asked about:

  • Age
  • Religion
  • Political stance (conservative, moderate or liberal)
  • Parenthood, i.e. are you a parent and the ages of your children
  • Marital status

I was shocked that they’d even ask. These questions are illegal in the US and the job is located in Chicago.
