Something not to do on a job interview

  1. 3 I saw this article on the Huffington Post yesterday and had a major W T H moment.

    Have heard of this before. It is NOT looked upon favorably by employers!

    I have heard of this trend before too. Fortunately neither me nor my sister ever thought of bringing our parents to a job/school interview. I remember when I was looking at nursing schools my parents drove me to an out of state admission interview and they waited in the car. The admissions rep actually asked me how I got to the campus and when I told her my folks drove me, she asked to briefly meet them at the end of the interview. I thought it was odd

    WTH indeed! Man, millennials already have a bad rap for being the excessively sensitive hand-holding types. This isn't helping their cause...

    My son is a millennial and this is him to a T, believe me, I don't want to hold his hand, but he is just so helpless. The only reason he even works is because I cut him off financially, and introduced him to some friends of mine who hire laborers. Now he works only enough to eat and put gas in his car. I had to kick the baby bird out of the nest kicking and screaming. Slowly but surely he is figuring it out.

    I'm raising my children to be strongly independent. It does tend to bite me in the arse when my soon to be 13 year old daughter tries to raise EVERYONE, me & her dad included.

    I cannot imagine....

    I think if a kid showed up with is parents it would be the shortest interview ever. Critical thinking, independence, hard working, can't imagine all those traits in someone who had to bring mommy...

    What?? I'm 23 and thank god none of my friends are doing this! I rely on my mother a decent amount, I probably either call her or text her once a day. She helps me with my resume and reads over all of my job applications but I would neverrrrr ask her to go to the actual interview with me. So weird.
