Businesses join and create an account to be able to post jobs. Job Seekers sign up to view and apply for those jobs. Once a business posts a new project or job to Hire My Mom, it is reviewed by our staff to review its legitimacy and once approved, it is posted in the members-only area in the Job Seeker Dashboard. Job Seekers may log in to view all active projects and apply directly to the hiring company. Job Seekers may also sign up to receive a daily "Job Alert" of projects / jobs that have been posted for the day.
Unlike most job sites, we do not take any commission from our job seekers once they are hired for a job. What our Mom Professionals earn, they keep. There is a small fee to sign up ($29.95 per quarter) which helps keep the number of job seekers to a reasonable size vs a “free” membership where you are competing with tens of thousands of other job seekers and are virtually invisible to hiring companies. And if you are lucky enough to be hired by one of the "free" sites, you will be paying 10-20% of your earnings back to the job site. And unlike many other job sites, we do not pull job ads off of the internet. All jobs on HireMyMom are posted BY the employer and in most cases these jobs cannot be found any where else on the internet. Our business has grown leaps and bounds by word of mouth because businesses have been overjoyed at the quality of candidates found on HireMyMom.com, and Mom Professionals have been thrilled with the great opportunities that come through HireMyMom.com. We are mom-owned and run, and we ourselves work from our home offices. Check out our testimonials.
When you join HireMyMom.com, you will be prompted to create a username and password. Once you log in, you are able to view all active projects by clicking on the "Job Seeker Dashboard". Once there, click on Newest Jobs, Jobs by Category or Search Jobs. You are able to upload multiple resumes and cover letters to apply directly to any jobs you are qualified for and interested in.
To apply for a project, you can click on "Apply Now" to attach your resume and cover letter. HireMyMom.com does not have any part of the application or selection process from this point on. The client may ask for samples of work and / or references, etc. which you would send directly to them. We designed Hire My Mom to be VERY easy to use for both our Mom Professionals and our business clients. There is no middle man. It's quick, easy and streamlined.

If you wish to remove your job posting, please log in to your account and edit the "end date" so that it will expire on the date you choose.

The Employer posting the job selects an "end date" for their Job Posting usually 30-90 days from the date of posting. Once the job is filled, they can log back in to have their job disabled and removed from the Job Board. Members also are encouraged to let us know if they find positions that are no longer available so that we may remove them.
We have had members find jobs the first week of joining. Others have taken several weeks. A lot of it depends on (1) how actively you are pursuing finding a job, (2) how qualified you are for the positions you are applying for, (3) how good your references and resume are, and (4) how well you interview and meet the expectations of the hiring employer.
Our advice is to be persistent. You have to stand out and sell yourself in a professional way. Send a professional cover letter outlining your experience in the particular area they are looking for along with your resume and why you would be a great candidate for the job. Make it personable and memorable. Otherwise you are just another applicant. If you have a website or blog, include that (if appropriate). Also be sure to include some references with their testimonials and/or contact information. If you don't hear back from them in a couple of days, send a polite email asking for an update and expressing your deep interest in their job or project.
And remember actively pursuing multiple job leads will maximize your chances of getting a job quickly. This means devoting as much time as you can to your job search. Don't be discouraged if you do not find the right job or project right away. Be persistent and continue to pursue those opportunities that match your skills and background.

The hiring company will pay you directly. It is up to the two of you to agree upon an acceptable wage and timeline to get paid. You are responsible for setting up acceptable payment methods and checking the company and person out with the www.bbb.org, sitejabber.com, LinkedIn, etc. HireMyMom.com is not involved in the payment process. And unlike other sites, we do not earn a percentage of your fees or earnings. What you make, you keep. Well except for what Uncle Sam is entitled to.
We do check out the company (if listed) with the BBB, RipOffReport.com, LinkedIn, and similar sites prior to approving any project. If they have an unsatisfactory record, the job is not approved. Or if the job is in any way offensive or objectionable, it is not approved. If the company is not listed with the BBB, it may be that they are a new company or a company that has not been researched by the BBB. As with any job or project, we strongly encourage members also to do research on the company and the person hiring. Check the company and person out by doing an internet search to see if you find any mention of them (positive or negative) on message boards, etc. Also check out our Terms & Conditions for further informaton.
Yes, we have had permanent at-home jobs posted to our members.
Due to the nature of our business, we cannot offer refunds for periods currently enrolled in since once a person joins and logs in, they are able to immediately capture all jobs and projects posted. If we offered refunds, it would encourage unscrupulous people to join, copy the information and then cancel.
No, this site is specifically for businesses to outsource projects such as administrative, writing, accounting, etc to moms working from home. Please try our other sites to recruit moms for your direct sales opportunity: www.HBWM.com.
We are definitely geared towards helping moms. We’ve been in the “mom” market for over 20 years and that is our niche. There are lots of sites out there for freelancers in general that you may be more interested in. However, we do not restrict anyone from joining.
