How to Open an Account in Odesk

After honing your skills and deciding which virtual career you would take, the next step is to open an account in a reputable and dependable freelancing website.
As a neophyte virtual assistant, I have only so far used oDesk in starting my career online and I find it to be user-friendly. Well, not at the beginning when I had to set up my resume and portfolio but it only shows that this site means business and would only tolerate serious contractors. But it was oDesk's helpful tests and guides that landed me my first job on my 3rd application, considering that it was mentioned in oDesk's blog that the first gig is usually sealed after an average of 45 applications!

oDesk is described as:
"... a company with a global job marketplace and a series of tools targeted at businesses that intend to hire and manage remote workers. Based in Menlo Park, CA, oDesk was founded by Odysseas Tsatalos and Stratis Karamanlakis. The name is a short version of "no desk" in reference to the company's intent to enable anyone to work anywhere, anytime."
I'd advise you to open an account in oDesk even if you have no idea yet how to use it so that you can already access the site as you study their instructions. Here's a simple presentation on how to open an account in oDesk:

Got interviewed as a Virtual Assitant!

With excitement for being hired as a VA in such a short a time, I wrote a lengthy letter of thanks to my Internet Marketing mentor, Jomar Hilario.

Jomar responded right away and invited me to be interviewed via live streaming for those interested to become VAs! Check out the recorded version of the streaming below:

Yup, am 8 days into my job as a Virtual Personal Assistant and Social Media Expert! And I got the gig on my 3rd application! Really grateful to Jomar for all the fab lessons he taught me.

Becoming a Virtual Assistant: The First Step is The Hardest!

I have heard about "Working from Home" from my mentor Jomar Hilario, the Philippines' Internet Guru and got interested so I enrolled in his workshop "How to be a Virtual Assistant" sometime in April 2010.

After so many excuses and with a drastic change in my financial status, I finally decided to pursue becoming a VA, in the meantime as a part-timer, and build a career from there. I hope to be a full-timer later so that I could spend more time with my son, being a single mom and all.

There are so many sites where you can learn on how to start a career in VA but the lesson of Jomar was so concise, I had no trouble applying what I learned even though I didn't do the homework at the end of the lesson (forgive me, Jomar!) but I am doing all of it: the application and the homework (this blog is one of the homeworks) simultaneously so I could already begin looking for a job right away! I'm a chronic multi-tasker, you know ;)

So the first step which is the most difficult is to DECIDE! Yup, DECIDE that you want to dedicate some of your free time to this job --- less Facebook time, no more Plants vs. Zombies, no more late night-outs, etc.--- or all your work time if you want to do this as your day job (or night if your employer is on a different time-zone). DECIDE that you can earn from home and spend more time with your loved ones! And DECIDE that in the near future, you will be your own boss!

In my next post, I will tell you about my application to Odesk, the best marketplace for online work!
