HireMyMom Success Story: Abbey Metz
Tell us about you and your experience finding work on HireMyMom.
I was skeptical to sign up for HireMyMom as I’ve always used free Job boards like Indeed but I decided to give it a try. After I revised my resume, I started to apply to a few jobs that I knew I would be good at, some I had tons of experience in the related field and others I didn’t have any professional experience in. I made sure to write a cover letter for each job explaining why I would be a good fit. After a week, I had two rejections, so I was a bit discouraged and left it at that, but within the next week two more companies reached out for interviews! I landed a job as a social media manager with no experience doing this, and another job as an appointment setter!
What did you do previously?
I currently am an administrative assistant at a large commercial HVAC company. I did have experience doing this type of work remotely as well. I have a sales background and have always done various virtual assistant tasks for bloggers over the years.
What are your top tips for landing a job or jobs on HireMyMom.com?
Write a cover letter for each application explaining why you would be a good fit but be honest about your skills. Although I didn’t have experience in the fields I was hired for, I had many skills needed to complete the tasks and am a fast learner. But, I was still very honest about what I knew and what I didn’t!
What’s your favorite thing about HireMyMom.com?
My favorite thing about HireMyMom is the quality of job postings. You know there won’t be a bunch of scams to sift through and there are new postings very regularly. They also know you are a mom and need flexibility.
What’s one fun or interesting fact about you?
I love to paddle board at Lake Erie!.
