i've just registered with this site as i've heard a lot about it lately,but once i registered i was asked various questions about jobs,eg;accounts,web designer,book keeper,writer and translater etc,this confused me a little as i thought this site was for freelance writing and writing reviews on things,i think i may have got it wrong,i don't understand what this site is for now,please could someone explain what exactly Odesk is

I too have been curious about odesk and have yet to try it out. So I am responding to your discussion to see if I can learn a bit more about it. Who knows if you figure it all out and well I find it something I can do then throw me a line and if I can do this I may be prompted to sign up under you. Good luck

if you're interested then keep a check on my post to look at my replies,i don't like people to join under me as i wouldn't want to take a cut of anyone elses money,it's their hard earned money not mine,so if you want to join then do so under your own name,,that wasn't meant to sound rude by the way

If he'll hire you, hire me as well. I just need a part time oDesk job and not a fulltime. I was offered before a fulltime writing job but as I have mentioned earlier, my daytime job sched is tight. I can only work 2 rewrites per night but they asked me to write 4 rewrites of which they claimed that 4 is actually below minimal number rewrites i should be doing. whew! i have a few dollars in my odesk account but i couldn't withdraw it yet as it hasn't reached the pay-out bracket. ironically, i haven't applied for any jobs yet and here i am with an odesk payoneer debit card sent by them to me months months ago. so if ever they hire you at oDesk, don't forget to hire me as well so i could help you with your writing. But please don't pay us below 1 dollar hahahaha! i have tried writing rewrites in other sites for $5 and $3 so it's quite discouraging if somebody would ask you to do a 300 or 500-word rewrite for $0.50. my! i usually ignore such offer.

door I do not look at it as a cut from my earnings, I am one that if I am referred to a great site well I would not be making the earnings had that person not enlightened me so I feel it is well deserved. I appreciate your feedback. By the way there are some sites that when you sign up not being referred you automatically fall under someone referral down-line. So the way I see it the person who refers me deserves the earning as that person deserves the cut for the information.

Odesk is a freelance website where your services can get paid by the hour or by fixed-price bids. A client get to post their job so that you can apply to do that particular job. Odesk offers jobs from data entry to writing as well as their initial job offerings in programming, graphics and web design jobs.

i'm not sure if i like the sound of this site,it seems hard work for little pay,as i'm not really any good much so i wouldn't get many job offers
