If an online form won't allow you to submit the application without answering a question about your age or dates associated with your career or education, you have the option of bypassing the computer, said Matthew Arrigale, vice president for Human Resources Americas at Schott North America of Elmsford, N.Y.
"Try to get hold of someone at that company and tell them the site is not letting you submit the application," he said. "Tell that person there is one question on the application that is asking for information you don't think you should provide. It's possible they are not aware of it." Your age or dates are not relevant information, and you shouldn't feel compelled to answer it, Arrigale said. The danger, he said, is that many interviewers will ask seemingly innocuous questions but are digging for more information. It's good to be aware of these questions. "No matter how innocently they ask some of these questions, you can start revealing more information," he said. "It's legal to ask, 'Are you at least 18 years of age?' and you might make a joke that reveals more than you want. Or they will ask you to describe long-term career plans. Don't say you are looking for a place to retire from." If a company presses for information on graduation dates and your attempts to avoid the issue aren't working, you might reconsider whether you want to work for the company, Arrigale said.
"Assess the fit between the culture of the organization and your own personal values," said Matthew Arrigale, VP for Human Resources, Americas, at Schott North America of Elmsford, N.Y. Talk to current employees; try to find someone with the organization that has made the same transition."
Talk about how you ran the business, how you were flexible and able to deal with change, Arrigale said.

Matthew Arrigale, VP for Human Resources, Americas, at Schott North America of Elmsford, N.Y., said it's important to be able to tell an employer what skills you utilized in running your company.
"Try to relate it to the gap the company has," he said. For whatever reason they make this decision, they should go into it with their eyes open," Arrigale said.
