Job seekers bring parents along on job interviews

File this one under grow up kids, and parents let go.

Millennial job seekers are now bringing their parents to job interviews. 

According to a new survey by the Wall Street Journal, 8 percent of recent college grads brought their parents to the location of the interview, while 3 percent had their parents in the actual interview with them.  

The new workers have lived under the microscope of their "helicopter" parents their entire lives, with the moms and dads scheduling play dates and writing letters to colleges admission officers.

But with all of the over parenting, researchers have found students actually do worse in class and have less satisfaction in life.
