Parents keen to join kids in interviews

Montreal — Employers might soon start seeing parents at job interviews, with one in five Canadians surveyed saying parents should be allowed to go on job interviews with their children. The survey of 2,000 people was commissioned by RSM Richter after the accounting firm received numerous calls from parents of applicants asking about the interview process. Dads are more likely, at 22 per cent, to want to sit in on interviews than moms, at 16 per cent.
