I have been actively working on oDesk platform for freelancers and employers for about 3 months now, since July. I joined oDesk back in September last year, when one of my colleagues tipped me of it. Back then, my experience of oDesk and the whole concept of freelancing were bad. Although, I’ve been into web-development for almost four years now, but I really didn’t get along with Freelancing with oDesk, until now.
My Success Story
At first, I could not even clear the essential oDesk Readiness Test; I failed thrice, and then left oDesk for almost a year. Then with some more guidance, and with a need of earning a bit more in addition to my regular 9 -5 jobs, I joined back. Then, I got a break through, and oDesk gave me my first 100 dollar earning.
Today, I’ve earned one thousand US dollars with freelancing on oDesk platform for employers, and freelancers. I wouldn’t say it is a big amount, but it is enough for me. Thank you oDesk!
My employers have been very happy with my work, and my rating is 5 out five after 15 contracts. I did both hourly, and fixed-rate jobs, and I am impressed somewhat with myself, how I’ve been able to justify both my regular and freelance jobs.
