You really need to pass the oDesk readiness test ASAP. You should also take any other tests that will show off your skills. Add your education, even if it is only your high school. Your scores on the tests you have taken aren't that good. Add to the skills section of your profile. Show off your skills, how many years you used a particular skill, and assess your skill level. Feel free to check out my profile. You might want to make your current test scores private as they do not reflect well on your experience. All of the forums seem to recommend that you hide any test score where you don't score in the top 20%.

Thank you for the wonderful info. You seem to be quite knowledable in the ODesk realm. I am looking into getting setup and would love to be able to speak with another contractor who has been at it for awhile. Is there a way that we could speak?

Really, the only way to speak is to use the forums. There's no private messaging or chat feature on oDesk. But using the forums does help a lot - plus it gives you the benefit of getting several opinions all at once. If you have a question, just feel free to ask away - someone will likely answer it Best of luck!
