HireMyMom Success Story: Stephanie Enciso
What’s your success story with HireMyMom.com?
I worked full time until the birth of my first son in November 2014. I was blessed to have a stay at home mom growing up, and wanted nothing more than to provide the same for my children. As with everything, I “Let go and Let God.” One night, I stumbled upon a Facebook Ad while rocking my toddler back to sleep. I never heard of the website, but decided to dig a little further. After a few minutes, I knew I had to be a part of this in some way! I joined the site in June 2016, and within a month had my first interview. I wasn’t offered the job, but was determined to find something that would allow me to stay at home with my son, while earning some additional income for our family. Within a few weeks I received multiple interview opportunities and was fortunate enough to receive two offers. I currently work for two companies, part time, and 100% remote. I continue to apply for positions, willing to take on more work! I love being able to work from my home, in my PJ’s, whenever I have free time!
What’s your educational and experiential background?
I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2006 with a Bachelors degree in Communication. After college, I worked for a medical manufacturing company in their customer service and marketing divisions. I also worked for a steel manufacturing company in an inside sales support role.
