Great question! I would agree with Stephanie....why is the interviewer asking? If you are asked this question in an interview, I would always try to steer the conversation back to the job and keep it professional and relevant to why you're there. If asked about your personal life or "tell me about yourself", stick to talking about your professional career. If you want to share something personal, keep it to your hobbies. Sharing that you're married or if you have kids should not be relevant to a job. If you are asked a question about your personal life, feel free to tell the interviewer that you aren't comfortable speaking about your personal life but would love to discuss your professional experience or schooling.
