When I heard the description, it made me pause and reflect on how this could impact someone's job search. I thought back to the episode of "Everybody loves Raymond" where Marie, the matriarch of the family, approached a potential employer that Robbie was scheduled to interview with and nearly lost Robbie the opportunity. (Lucky Suit, Episode :138 | aired February 4, 2002).
Have you ever had someone think that they were helping you, yet because of their "hovering" they really hindered your job search progress? If all else fails, make your plan, adjust as needed, and if you need help from someone, ask them specifically for what you need.
Do you have experience with a helicopter situation?
