Job Description

This is an hourly job that would be short term. You should speak perfect English and be able to place phone calls. You should fit the prerequisites unless you are feeling bold and confident that you can compensate in some special way. Like...hmm I'm not sure? That's for you to figure out :)

I'd like to hear how you become a successful contractor on oDesk.
What do I mean when I say "successful?"
1. Rating over 4.5
2. Over 250 hours
3. Over $3500 earned

So....tell me a brief story about how you got started as though you were giving advice to a new contractor looking to break into the oDesk racetrack.

Thanks oDesk contractors! And...oh yea...keep it classy ;)
