I received an email suggesting that I apply to a job here at oDesk "to help clients make their first hire." There is a link to the job but I don't want to click on it. Is this real? There is no oDesk header in the email. This is also the first time I've received an email like this. I hope one of the mods can confirm.

Hi everyone, This is a legitimate email sent by our team that helps new clients get started and they reach out to freelancers who appear to be a great fit for the client's job. You received it because you were a good fit for that particular job. To know that the email is from oDesk, check that the email address is an @odesk.com email address. Also, we will always link to a job post on oDesk where the URL will start with https://www.odesk.com/jobs Please feel free to apply - or not - as you see fit. Hope this clarifies things...

Thank you Ayesha. Just to be sure, this does not affect our responsiveness rating if we don't do anything right?

It's not technically a job invite, so no, it won't affect your responsiveness score.
