Is it just me?
I am suddenly being besieged with invititations from clients with no hires and who are often unverified.
I've had the guarantee badge on previous jobs; could these clients be getting a message that if they hire me, the work is guaranteed?
Would the guarantee show before they invite me? Or do clients get some recommended contractor list when they post jobs?
It seems like it is more than just my profile placement in search, as I am getting noticeably more invites from newbies than from established clients.

Hi Marcia, you are getting the invites because once a new client post a job, they are given choices of about ten freelancers that fit the job post, this helps to make their work easier. They don't need to search for your name, oDesk just give them about 10 choices of freelancers, and since you have a guarantee, I guess that's what is attracting their attention.

That's why I am asking.
I had the guarantee on a previous job I was hired for. I could see the badge in My Contracts, so I know it's possible that oDesk would guarantee me for some other jobs
It seems odd that I am getting a slew of invites from new clients but the number of invites from clients with any work history isn't increasing in the same manner.
I wonder if I show up on that list that goes to clients posting jobs for the first time with a guarantee badge next to my name.
