A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon oDesk. Has anyone used it? Do you know anyone who has? It seems like a good idea and I'd like to hear any opinions.
yes i am the current user of the odesk.
its great place to earn some extra bucks. i got my first job after 2-3 months of joining. so it will require so much patient. but as first job ended i got another job. so basically it is tough to get in for the first ime. but if you are doing good then you will paid more.

Or some of the folks on this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/56074#post1271354
I use oDesk. For all sorts of freelance work opportunities, not just writing - web design and web research too. Do work hard on your profile first, though, and do some of those oDesk competency test results will look good too.
I know of many people who have joined oDesk and just given up after a while. Stick to it and be patient. Don't charge very high prices at first, and you can put your prices up later when people can see that you've had excellent ratings and they are more prepared to pay higher prices for your work. I don't do any of the hourly work only jobs; I just do the "fixed work" assignments.
Regularly check the new job postings and apply quickly before the person is confronted with a very long list of applicants, but at the same time, spend time on a good application letter, unique to each job posting.
Thank you for your input Teresa. I took some of the test but then started to wonder if it was worth it. I didn't want to invest all sorts of time into establishing a good profile if nothing would come of it.
I think that the idea of only doing fixed work makes sense as I have a full time job. Thanks again!

Has anyone ever heard of Odesk?I found it online as a means of getting income for freelance work. I have seen a few hubs on it, but I want to hear personal experiences from anybody who has tried the site and has actually been successful. I don't want to waste my time with it if I don't know anyone...

I just found the HubPages Directory and naturally, looked for my name. It says that authors must have published hubs to be listed there but I can't find my name. How do we get added?

Does anyone write for clients found on oDesk or Elance?I'm registered on both sites, but have yet to bid on any jobs. I'd love to hear from anyone with experience on these sites. Thanks!
