Hi Michelle, There are a lot of good clients here, but also bad ones. Sorry about your experience, I had to deal with one of those people before. Report the people that have been inappropriate with you so oDesk can monitor things. Don't let it discourage you, you'll find some good contracts.

if every one of us (we were all newbies at one point) had to go through a sexy skype interview then oDesk would be known as a porn site and not a job site. of course it's not true! don't let it get to you. spruce up your profile - make it attractive in the right way, so you get the really good clients. keep applying - you can't expect to get hired straight off especially since you're going against freelancers from all over the world, and you're a newbie (you said so yourself). don't make a big deal of it, just keep moving and you'll eventually get there.
