Employers sometimes ask people applying for jobs for personal information, such as their hobbies and interests, and whether they are married or single. Some people say that this information may be relevant and useful, others disagree. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Firms often ask for minute details about
job applicant’s
Suggestion
a job applicant’s
live
such
as the pastimes of the applicants as well as their marital statuses.
This
has resulted in a controversy where some people insist that
such
request for
such
personal
information
are necessary and should be encouraged while other people, of which category I belong to, argue that
such
knowledge about prospective employees should not be available at the firm’s disposal. The reasons for each view will be discussed. There are reasons why some people feel employers should ask for
some
one or some or every or all without specification
any
private
information
about
job
seekers. One of
such
reasons is that they feel the
information
will help the
company
to know

intuition
about any applicant. Companies deserve to know if they are employing maniacs or criminally-inclined people.
For example
, a man whose extracurricular activity is watching pornography will likely be a danger to female staff in a
company
. Another reason for people supporting the idea of companies knowing very much about interviewees is that the
company
needs to know if the
job
is the best fit for an applicant. A woman who has five children will not be suited for a

shifts.
However
, there are reasons why I do not subscribe to asking for personal
information
of prospective employer. I feel requesting for
such
personal details will be encroaching too far into their personal lives. The
last
thing I want is for my boss to know that I play video games. Another reason for my stance on
this
matter about a
company
’s knowledge of any
job
applicant is that
such
information
about a person does not help to know whether one is competent at a
job
, and as
such
there is no need for
such
information
. In conclusion, while some argue that a
job
seeker’s personal
information
should be submitted to a
company
when a person applies for a
job
, I feel that
such
an action should be discouraged as it is unnecessary.
