Hello all, 

I keep seeing this message on Freelancer Type, what exactly does that mean?

It means they are looking for an Odesk Agency to fill their job. They do not want Freelancers unless they are working for an agency.

I work as an exclusive agency contractor, and when I apply for a job under my agency that's when I see "Freelancer Type" message.

There is a job that I'm eyeing for that needs a group of atleast 5 people how do I go about it since I'm not in an agency and don't know how to get in one.

If the job simply says "need to hire 5 freelancers", then apply for it. The client is simply looking to hire five different people and you don't need to be in an agency to be one of them.


If the client wants an agency, I think they can request this right in the actual job posting.

Kennedy, be careful with jobs that say they need to hire 'x' freelancers. From what I've read in this forum, several freelancers have applied to such jobs and discovered that the job was a scam.
