Hey guys, I'm new to the freelancing side of oDesk. I created an account (around 36 hours ago).
Your profile is under review
This is normal.
All new profiles are reviewed before the contractor can apply for jobs.
Just be patient.
They main thing ODesk is looking for is that your oDesk profile is complete and looks like a real person somebody might want to hire.
Wait a day or two. You'll either hear back that you're all set, or that you need to change or add one or two things.
Hi, as a New-bee, wondering how it is going with Upwork. It is now 2018 and you joined in 2015 with the comments I am expecting: Please wait.
Today is the first I have heard of Upwork after searching the web for years. A few others sites have popped up prior. Personally, I was excited to finally find Kelly Services in the ranks of on-demand-temps and sorry to hear the hardships the industry has faced.
