Welcome 2010!! (Im late!) Gotta let you know that I have been too busy in working after I had my computer fixed. It has been raining projects for me these days. I recently just got my very first Odesk freelance job! Do you know what it means? I got a buyer!! I can jump with joy..
Its my first job after 6 months and I am so excited to start! For those people out there who doesn't know what odesk is, I can say that it is the BIGGEST freelance portal in the web!!
I have applied to several jobs there before I got hired. Im lucky to have a very kind buyer, thus Im more than willing to work now. For those who might be thinking that this is only for professionals, then you are wrong. There are jobs like forum posting, data entry or link building that does not really require too much knowledge.
Lets just say, it only takes experience. Let me share some tips so you can land on your first freelance job as well:
- After signing up take an Odesk Readiness test. Dont worry the test is not too hard, it is consist of 11 questions only and the links for the answers are in the questions too. So all you have to do is read.
- Submit work samples for better chance of getting hired!
- While waiting for an interview, you can keep on taking free tests to complete your profile in Odesk. A good profile is important because it is what the buyers see first.
Never lose hope! Just apply and apply until you get hired! Good luck!
