HireMyMom Success Story: Nicole Smith
Tell us about you and your experience finding work on HireMyMom
Once I decided I was going to change my career path to work from home, I spent the time creating my account and really being mindful of my skills and what I’m able to offer others. I checked in daily and applied for jobs as they came through. I did a few zoom interviews with some very nice people. I was lucky because within a few weeks I had a part-time job offer which actually turned into a full-time job within about a month. I’m now able to work from the comfort of my beautiful home office, no more fluorescent lights 🙂
What are your top tips for landing a job or jobs on HireMyMom.com?
My best advice for landing a new gig is to spend the time really filling in your profile and don’t be afraid to show your personality. Also, finding a job isn’t going to happen overnight, so patience is needed. Don’t be afraid to reach out to the career coaches and other resources to help you.
What piece of advice do you wish someone had given you at the start of your work from home journey?
The transition can be a little scary and stressful so make sure you have good organizational skills and processes in place, that will make the transition into your new normal much smoother.
What do you see as your greatest success in life?
I’m VERY introverted and this journey has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone but that’s ok because it’s worth it. I am actively searching for more opportunities as well!
