So without directly answering their question, try to address their underlying concern. In this instance you might say, "My career is very important to me. I'm fully committed to performing at my highest level at all times, and don't allow any kind of distractions to interfere with that. I'll deliverrepparttar results you're looking for."

If you're not sure what their true concern is, ask something like "Could you please rephrase or elaborate on your question? I want to make sure I address your concern."

Please realize that many interviewers are untrained and therefore unaware that a question they might ask to breakrepparttar 125369 ice -- such as "Do you have any kids?" -- is inappropriate. Yes, this question may be an attempt to determine if you have child-care issues that could interfere with your job... but it's MORE likely thatrepparttar 125370 interviewer is innocently trying to find something he/she has in common with you.

Inrepparttar 125371 end, it's basically a judgment call on your part. If you feelrepparttar 125372 interviewer has no legitimate reason to ask an inappropriate question, and you do not want to answer it, say "I'm sorry, but I don't see how that has any relevance to my ability to do this job." You might runrepparttar 125373 risk of losingrepparttar 125374 job, but if your gut instinct is telling you there's something amiss, you wouldn't want to work for that person anyway.

Here's a list of some questions --repparttar 125375 wrong way, andrepparttar 125376 right way, to obtain legitimate information:

Inappropriate: Are you a U.S. citizen? OK: Are you authorized to work inrepparttar 125377 United States?
