Note to Millennials: “Please don’t bring your parents to work with you.”

Parents of Millennials have earned the nickname “Helicopter Moms and Dads.”

They hover.

They’ll do practically anything to get their kids into college.

And, now, according to an article in the Wall Street Journal, some are even sitting in on job interviews!

Read Rob Greiner’s take on this new phenomenon!

I don’t really want to get into the personal merits of this strategy and whether or not I like the idea (I don’t); rather, I want to comment on this trend through a professional lens, and there is one key issue I keep coming back to: your parents won’t be able to help you after you get hired.

My take: Helicopter parents guarantee that Millennial Generation will take longer to mature and become independent than generations that came before.
