Hi, when I enter 'Messages' tab and try to type a new message, it says "You don't have any contacts on oDesk yet, so you cannot compose a message". How can I add contacts? Please help.

I think you need to have some work history, and employers are your contacts. But not sure. However, I advise you not to spam clients even after interview or hiring, if they don't initiate conversation first, or you have something really important to ask/notify them about.

Vesna is right, you can't add contacts manually. They're automatically added when you get hired by clients.

But I guess almost all employers need at least 2 contacts to submit the proposal.
Then how to deal with this?

Thanks
