    THIS IS WHAT I SAID WHEN I FIRST JOINED ODESK: I join oDesk primarily because I want to hone and promote my skills in writing. Even as I aim to gain as much knowledge as I can, I also would love to see my work benefit other people, organizations, commercial and industrial entities. I have done copy writing, layout, and pre-press work for a number of print advertisements. I also developed and designed a brochure for a pipe and fitting manufacturer. Moreover, I have written some essays and feature stories. Having a natural inclination towards service, I feel a special sense of achievement in being able to help people bring their causes to the fore through my writing. By joining oDesk, therefore, I wish to obtain this personal desire, and of course, to bring to the fore my own talent in this field. AFTER MORE THAN A YEAR - THIS IS WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT ODESK: I've been doing a number of jobs through oDesk and I never regret signing up here. I cannot enumerate the good things I earned here nor measure how much I've grown professionally. Thank you, oDesk.  less
