Alright, so you’ve found the oDesk user you want to connect with for an interview. Chances are that he/she is not in the same timezone as you. The thought process goes thus:
“I am GMT minus this, and he is GMT plus that… say what?”
Here comes Google Maps to the rescue. I check the Google Maps Mania blog once in a while for cool mashups, and found these two that could help oDesk users working across multiple timezones.
- Qlock – World Clock: Has day/night shadows on the map, plus you can download it to keep it on your desktop (I haven’t tried that)
- GChart – What time is it?: Shows the current time, pictures, blogs and currency for any point you click on the map
We have some other resources in the Calendar and Timezones section of our Handbook.
