As i have said in my previous posts, i joined Odesk several months ago. But have not really serious on it until two weeks ago. I completed my profile and did some tests. Frankly speaking, i have done pretty well in the tests. I have been wishing to get some interviews after applying to more than 10 jobs. But to my disappointed, none acceptance i have gotten until today. Well, it is really hard to get an acceptance from Odesk. Though many people say it is a legit and good site to make money online. But there are always so many competitors and clients don't want to give any chance to newbies. I just wonder which person is not newbie at the beginning of his or her participation in one site? How long have you wait to get your first job from this site?

yes on odesk is not easy finding an online job in many cases you can receive many request for interviews and so you spend much time but afterthat it is difficult to work there anyway i think if you apply for some jobs and you are lucky you can work in some positions there!!

Well, i think maybe it is because i have not done well in some aspects. For example, the cover letter. I have looked around in the forum and there are lots of things i should learn. I wish i can get my first job at last.
