What’s your success story with HireMyMom?
I have been a member of HireMyMom.com since 2010. I left a high level corporate position to spend more time with my kids because the commute was eating up about 3 hours of my day and I felt like I was missing out on special time. It only took me a few months to find a job on this site. And over the years, the amount and type of jobs have just gotten better and better! I have secured at least 7 positions using this site over the course of the last 6 years. I have been able secure remote positions so I do not have to waste any time in the car commuting and sitting in horrible Houston traffic! It has been a dream come true for my family and I.
What’s your educational and experiential background?
I have a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and over 15 years’ experience with much of that being in corporate marketing and more recently working with small businesses and entrepreneurs on their marketing efforts.
What is your top tip for landing a gig on HireMyMom.com?
Just look for what you want and are qualified for, be honest and open about what you are looking for when speaking with the prospects and make sure it’s a perfect fit for both of you.
What’s your favorite thing about HireMyMom.com?
My favorite thing about HireMyMom.com is that it gives me the opportunity to still work in a field that I enjoy while having some flexibility to attend my kids events and activities! Secondly, as I mentioned before, the caliber of positions has increased over the years and I am looking forward to utilizing it more and more.
What’s one fun fact about you?
I have always dreamed of being an astronaut.
