The return to ODesk

A few weeks ago, I decided to do the what I thought was unthinkable: consume 60 ODesk connects.

It was unthinkable for me at first because a few years back, I only consume 25 connects. Adding 35 connects (making it 60 if you ODesk profile is complete) is one of the latest features of ODesk.

60 seemed a lot that 25. But then, I decided to go for it.

It took me 4 days to consume the connects because I only applied to the online jobs every night. I finally consumed it on a Saturday night. After consuming all connects, I decided that I still got the groove on so I consumed my People Per Hour credits as well.

A few days later, I got an interview notice from ODesk. I was interviewed two days after. Then, I got hired!

So here’s the tip: consume your credits in any way you can. No need to cry if you got declined; just replace them by looking for another online job. Chances are, you will find a client to work with.

Somebody's back to ODesk!
