We have suffered a lot by oDesk new changes. But they are not concern about us. oDesk support show a lame excuse that is not logical. So it is time to think about leaving oDesk.

I copy paste my application and do a little rewrite to match keyword of the job. I think my theory supported this claim since I never get a single response for 100% copy-pasted application. I think this system has its place for balancing out application with old and new freelancers. Just a hypothesis but the system is not perfect nonetheless.

Its really disappointing for freelancers. Odesk should take care of this problem soon. Otherwise we have to leave odesk. Smiley Sad

Ok, this is what they said read below ,and it looks like nothing more than pre-written letter . I checked many jobs today , even 5 star contractor are in Hidden Dustbin . I have said Bharti, to ensure your job applications are highly ranked, apply to jobs where your skills and past work experience are a great fit and that you build a great relationship with your client every time. This means being truthful on your profile about what skills you have, ensuring before you accept a job offer that you can meet the client’s expectations, delivering on time, and communicating with your client throughout the project and especially if you run into problems. By providing this type of quality experience and satisfying clients, your applications will once again be ranked highly for clients.

The system does not work as it should. I posted a job the other day and some of the best freelancers are under the auto hidden part, even one who worked on one of my projects before and is the exact fit/person I am looking for.

Please submit a ticket and tell them this. They need to hear from clients, that we hate this feature and that the best contractors are being hidden.
