When you fill out a job application, do you put down things like your Social Security Number, Date of Birth, etc?

I've always thought this was an obnoxious question when they haven't even interviewed me yet?!

Same thing with Job References...

Here is an interesting article that says you should give out your SSN so quickly...

The part of the article where the manager has a "Throw in trash" folder blows my mind!!!!!!!!!

Nope, I'll only give my SSN once I'm hired for W2/W4 forms.

No, but I very quickly, in the interview, blat out my race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and then say the most controversial thing I can about something that's in the news. Works beautifully.
Anyone wanna see my giant LCD?
