Why I like oDesk

In my first week here I got two paying gigs and both clients LOVE my writing.
Encouraged by this, I applied for a position over at Demand Media in their Pets Section. They just today told me I am "ineligible" and "do not meet minimum standards" in spite of my meeting all 4 requirements that they list.
(insert hysterical laughter here)
I went over to eHow to read some of the articles on pet health written by their presumably qualified people - you know, folks with a writing degree from some podunk community college? It's largely word salad.
Editors need to learn to leave the medical writing to us medical professionals. Seriously.
(I have a doctorate in veterinary medicine and 30 years of clinical experience. And I do NOT write word salad.)
I love oDesk.
