Thanks Preston. I'm looking at profiles when signed in as an oDesk member though. My profile is private at the moment because I'm not looking for work. However, my non-Odesk work history is very important and I would be very angry if oDesk decided to hide it.

Hmmm... Marcia, I am not sure what you are seeing, but I will elaborate about what I see. My oDesk work history is shown. I have never seen that be hidden. Of course I would think that is a disaster if that was hidden because that is presumably a large part of reason people hire me. To be perfectly clear, it is my non-oDesk work history that is not showing, and I believe that is not shown on many contractor profiles that I see.

It sounds like you see your non-oDesk work history, but you do not see such history on the profiles of many other contractors. I do not know why that is the case and can only conjecture that there is an algorithm that stipulates when to hide or show non-oDesk work history. There is certainly no button or option that I am aware of which controls this.

My own profile is hidden (private), so I don't know what would be seen if it were visible.

 

I'm also noticing that freelancers claiming to be designers don't have portfolios. I don't know if oDesk is hiding portfolios or these freelancers don't have the common sense to realize that clients will want to look at examples of their work.

I bet they have not posted portfolios. I have not spent much time compiling a portfolio. Been too busy working to do so. But I have definitely never seen my portfolio hidden.
