A Tech Job Recruiter called me and one of his first questions was what year did I graduate high school?
Isn't that question illegal in the United States? I do sound very young over the phone, maybe he thought I was 19 or something and the employer wanted a little bit older.
Also this same recruiter asked me an acceptable salary. I told him I am aware of starting salaries for junior programmers and those should be fine. But he forced me say an actual number, I really didn't want to because I may have picked a salary lower than they planned to offer, and that could cost me money without even knowing.
Any advice on how to answer the salary question?
Either way I am not talking to this recruiter again if he calls me back like he suggested he might.
