How Can you create your Profile 100% on oDesk:

Every contractor needs a profile to showcase their skills as a freelancer. How you create
your profile tells exactly how you are. So don't copy other's profile, make them stand out.
How will you create a profile that can stand out?

Take oDesk Readiness (Two Readiness test)Test first: 
Everyone should take oDesk Readiness Test. In this way, clients see you as a person not an auto

generated bot.

Take Skills Test: 
Skills test will determine your skill. Take tests related to your skills.
Do not attempt to cheat because it will only hurt your reputation in the long run. Answer

Upload a portrait: 
The portrait must be professional looking. Not those taken somewhere
with friends or those commonly used pictures in social networking sites. This is work, so
treat it as one. A good portrait doesn't have unnecessary background. White is preferred.
Clothes in the picture must look professional too.

Create a unique title: 
A title must not just have your skill, show what other things you
know. Be unique and descriptive. Ex. Web Designer (CSS, HTML, JavaScript) and SEO Freelance

Build your Objective: 
Your objective is your sales pitch. Write objectives that will draw
the employer's attention. Be creative, clients will know if your objective is just taken in
the internet.

Set up your portfolio: 
Any works related to your skill can be your portfolio. If you don't
have one, I'm sure you have school or personal projects that you have kept elsewhere.

Education and Certification:
Education tells how deep your level of understanding is. Show
off what you have attained, describe the degrees you have taken. If you have honors and special
mentions describe them too.Most freelancer have certifications, most don't. If you have one, it
is one of your greatest advantage. Show off your scores too.

Employment Background: 
Put an employment background that is more related to your work. We
don't need carpenters, janitors, or sewing or any job not using computers.

Skills must be as much as possible relevant to your chosen field. If you want a data
entry position, show data entry skills like for  example MSExcel, MSword, or Powerpoint. Treat
each as a skill and not in groups(MSOffice Applications).

Other experiences: 
What other skills or unique abilities you know? Show them off here. Make
sure that they are relevant to your chosen field.

An outstanding profile:
• Has a title and objective that can stand out from the rest.
• Has taken odesk readiness test and odesk skill tests.
• Completes at least 80% of the profile.
• New: Has a verified identity.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
