Are you an oDesk user?

I’ve been working at home for close to six years already. I was working as an accounting manager before I decided to quit and work at home. I’ve been doing freelance work mostly on writing content and some audit work on the side. Needless to say I found this style of working more fulfilling, especially in terms of financial outcome at the end of every month.

For the past 5 years, I’ve been hearing about oDesk.com and how so many people are earning a lot from it. The site is all about freelance offers for content writer, article writer, e-book writer/editor, virtual assistant, telemarketer, SEO specialist, etc. There’s a lot of work there for those willing to work for a small sum of money in exchange for a possible long-term arrangement (read: steady source of work and income).

I personally know blogger-friends who have really earned from oDesk and since some paid programs are not giving enough amount of work anymore, I decided to finally open an oDesk account of my own. I haven’t done the oDesk test yet so I can bid for jobs but I will as soon as possible.

Holidays is slowly approaching. This is the time for all of us to start saving so that we have something to tap on during that festive season.

Have you tried oDesk.com yet? Do you have an account there? What can you say about the service?
