oDesk has launched a new job category system that improves provider search and job search. With this change, all oDesk providers and job listings will be classified into one or more of our new job categories. This system gives oDesk providers one more way to be found by oDesk buyers and one more way to search oDesk job listings to find the opportunities that are right for you.
Posting a Job with the new category system:
You can now narrow your job and provider searches based on the categories that interest you. Use Advanced Job and Provider Search to narrow searches by category:
Providers: To add yourself to a job category:
We have already categorized all providers that had skills listed on their profile, but we encourage all providers to login and make sure you add all of the categories for which you would like to be found.
We hope these new features make it is easier for the right people to find each on oDesk.
