ODesk - Reviews From A Contractor
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In this article, ODesk reviews from a contractor, an actual user of the ODesk program, are to be shared with you.

When you are looking to make a few extra bucks, preferably from home, where can you find genuine working from home jobs? Are there any real work at home jobs? The good news is that there are and you can find them at ODesk.

I have been using ODesk for just a little over a month and I must say, have had nothing but a positive experience.

You start out my creating a profile, preferably with a picture of yourself, and provide general background information about yourself. You can include things like past work experience, skills and the types of jobs you are interested in, such as writing articles or posting on blogs.

Once you set up your profile, it is a good idea to take some of the skill tests. These tests are free and once you complete the short tests of approximately five minutes each, your test results are returned immediately. If you score well on a test, you want to post it on your profile page, so employers can see that you have taken the time to do the test, and scored well. The tests help measure your skills in such areas as general office, customer service, English and typing. A good score helps you get that first assignment.

Once you set everything up - at no charge to you - you are ready to browse through hundreds of available job. The application process is easy and there are help guides that walk you through writing a successful cover letter, what to say, and how to say it.

The guidelines and help available to you on the ODesk web site is extremely insightful and very helpful. Should you need additional assistance or find that you have a question that is not covered on the web site, you have the ability to contact the customer service staff at ODesk. I had to contact them once and had a reply returned with 24 hours.

I cannot say enough about ODesk. They offer guaranteed payment for all logged hours, have a work log which keeps an accurate account of all hours worked and you get weekly pay. You can opt to have money deposited into a Paypal account, directly into your bank account, or have a check cut and mailed to you.

I consider myself very lucky because of the four contracts I have been awarded, all the employers have been extremely professional, courteous, clear with their instructions and have paid once the contract ended, or was successfully completed.

Sometimes an extra $100 or $200 per week can make all the difference. If you need extra money to cover bills, pay off credit cards, save up for a trip or something new for the house, or the many other reasons you may want some extra money, then take a look at ODesk. It is nice to be able to work from home and have flexibility in your schedule.

The ODesk reviews are in from this contractor and based on my personal experience, ODesk easily gets a five star review.
