these thread are for you to share your experience in oDesk.com,
hopefully with your sharing everyone can get motivated and try their best to do the work.
for starter, let me share my Experience.
My name Hery Hendra, i start working on oDesk.com since January 2010. When i first joined oDesk.com, i could not get any job in one month. after one month period, i try to do something :
- update my profile.
- do a lot of test on my specialty. i'm always failed in english basic skill if you want to know, because i never take a course in English .
after 1 month, and i update my profile, comes my first job, $2 job (job converting perl to php task. i do the task before i apply, kind of crazy thing i do). hmm, pathetic right. But i never though these ways, i always thinks larger results. so i do these jobs, and come another one, $3 job (hehe, still pathetic. a very low paid job). after these two job, i get another job, an hourly job that paid me in total $28. these all happen in 1 month.
after these job, in the next month, i could easily get another job. especially hourly job. why, i think because the rating are good . but i never stop there, i always taking test. minimal 1 in 1 month. no matter if i passed or failed, because test to me are to see how much we improve in that area.
I always get good feedback because i always communicate with client everyday. but sometimes there are client that hard to communicate or requesting to much, i faced these kind of client before, usually i cancelled the project and refund the money, if the money are less than $50 .
ok i think that's my experience in oDesk.com, anyone here want to share too.
please don't hesitate .
