Put a smile on my face

Well so i hired a contractor a month ago for my company. He had no hour under his belt but sent a very well-written CV and instantly reminded me how i was just like him starting out. He ended up becoming our best hire, top of the line quality, and not to mention was willing to work overnight to deliver on-time. I gave him the best bonus we could afford, left a superb feedback that would surely get him other gigs easily and suggested he could command a rate thrice as much.

So out of curiosity, i check back to see how he's doing and the guy has really got things moving from that point on, getting quality jobs left and right with exemplary feedback at higher rate as well. I'm so happy for the him and feel like an old man rubbing his hands with glee watching his kid grows wings and takes off. Okay that's kind of creepy but you get the point Smile

I get your point Smile

WOW

It's so nice to see a client come here and brag about a great contractor instead of coming to complain about a terrible contractor. You made my day Smile

Yes, but this has only substantiated your theory once.

Need a whole more more like this Client and Contractor both.

If that happens oDesk will have a better name for themselves.
Myaybe to a point that even contractors would not require and upfront,
nor would clients be asking for free samples.

I know, i am dreaming. But.....

With open eyes

I have experienced it with open eyes got many clients one can dream Smile, sometimes complaining clients and contractors confuses me, not to say other type doesn't exist but my theory is if you are good you'll get good, have to be patient and overlook little bad experiences comes your way and most importantly if you are willing to give you'll..............

Mine was not a theory Bro. it

Mine was not a theory Bro. it was an actual experience, though not at oDesk. Am sure there are a lot out there. But normally people like this are always under the radar.

True that if there would be more here at oDesk, it be a better place. As for now, we can only dream....
