Improve the feedback mechanism
I find it very challenging to find senior contractors on odesk.
In real life you get very impressive CVs, "on the paper" almost everyone look impressive.
One of the most powerful tools we have offline is recommenders list - I just call them, talk to them to understand their experience with my potential employee - this feature is super important for senior workers.
I think you should add this feature (contact previous contractor) and let the contractor choose if they agree to be contacted.
