I'm waiting for them to fix the job feed so that I can limit the categories. I have the key words that I want to search for but I only want to search for those key words in a certain category (writing). My job feed is filled with jobs for video and photo editing as well as computer work.

Has anyone else encountered this problem, or is it only me? I have been working via oDesk for more than a year now, have a 90% client satisfaction rate, and am a 'top rated' freelancer.


The message reads as follows:


"Oops, looks like we don't know enough about you to recommend specific jobs. Tell us more about yourself by adding information to your profile and start applying to jobs"


Does anyone have any suggestions regarding this? I find it extremely perplexing.

Hi Irene


That particular problem pops up at random so far. It can happen to anyone no matter how long they have been using odesk.


I have seen it twice so far. The 1st time took a few days to straighten out. The 2nd time took about 4mins to fix itself. Nope, there's no need to do anything to your profile because of that message.
