Mentoring Program for new contractors

Hello to all my fellow Armenians. If you are a new contractor on oDesk, didn't get your first job yet, and would like to fix that, then this post is for you - please read on.
oDesk has launched a Mentoring Program in Armenia to help new contractors start earning money and reputation on oDesk, using the help of an experienced contractor who will be the mentor, and will assist you in creating profile, applying to jobs, talking with prospective employers and in other ways that can help you to get up and running on oDesk. That mentor is me, Gevorg Voskanyan, and I am ready to give you my hand with advices and answers to your questions. You don't have to pay anything for mentor's services, so please don't hesitate to contact me to participate and get mentored. Your success is my success so I am looking forward to a rewarding cooperation with you.

Dear Gevorg! Very nice to have you here as a moderator and a mentor! I am on Odesk since January this year and still did not get any job, except one, which turned out a disaster. So, I wish to participate and get mentored to have some first jobs done. Please, engage me! What are my further steps?
