I just listened to an mp3 file from Career Moxie Radio, one of the featured shows, entitled Why Parents Don’t Belong in a Child’s Interview. This podcast interviewed Laura Hagler of Skirt.com regarding a trend she’s personally encountered, helicopter parents. She told stories about parents bringing their children to a job interview and requesting to sit in on the interview. Hagler continues to tell how many times the child was unable to answer a question and proceeded to look at his/her parent who then answered it for him/her. There are so many things I could say about this occurrence, but Hagler summed it up very well when she said, “If they couldn’t do the interview on their own, how were they going to be able to do the job on their own?” This is just one of the sponsor podcasts currently on JobRadio.FM.
