Hi , i'm new and i want to know, after i send out an AD and does shortlisting them means i am interested in them for the job? I just don't want to accidentally hire all that i click, on a one man job.
Thank in advance
Clients don't need information about you, such as an ID #.
I do a lot of my most lucrative work with clients who don't even have my email address, don't have my Skype ID, don't have my phone number, and certainlhy don't my address or any account information.
I can talk to clients just fine using oDesk messaging.
Yes, some clients prefer to use phone or email or Skype, and I often accommodate that.
But when clients ask for ID #s or other personal information, they're not real clients. They're scammers or they're stealing identity information.
Shortlisting candidates does not mean you will necessarily hire them. After you make a decision, you can just click More>Hire and send an offer to the freelancer you choose for the job. Only after the freelancer accepts your offer there will be an active contract.
