oDesk account creation
Though I said in first episode, yet talking again for keep in mind, who provide jobs in oDesk, I mean who submit jobs in oDesk, they are called client and who works I mean freelancers called contractor. In the last episode I said I’ll discuss about account creation in second episode.
Here is a good thing to be beginning. Once in a while oDesk small changes or update their features. So it will be shown here in the future may not look exactly the same. However, there is nothing to fear, main content fairly similar to the original content. So you can start without any anxiety. Never be hopeless or excited if you look for something new or unexpected. Keep the head cool; try to understand with the patience. However, if you can understand English well the small change does not seem such a problem. So, just not for oDesk, you will have to move skills in English for freelancing. Because, freelancing marketplace clients are communicate in English. Clients send mail and message for contact. Sometimes the clients want to talk on Skype. So if you cannot communicate in English with clients, then you will face a serious issue. So if you’re other languages people than English, you should try to achieve skills in English, as well as your own language. As English are an international language and the people of almost all countries and all languages of the world using this language to communicate with the world. So there is no chance to avoid this language. Proficiency in English should be lot of benefits for success of freelancing. However, no more talk, let’s start.
