Here’s one way to NOT get a job:
Say nothing when you apply for a position. A typical flow in oDesk is that project sponsor posts a project. Developers see the project and submit their names for consideration. When applying for a position the developer has a chance to say something. It could be âplease hire meâ?. Or it could be: âI have reviewed your position and I am qualified to fill it for these reasonsâ¦â?. But you have to say something. If you just submit your name and say nothing then you will find it very hard to get the sponsorâs attention. This is your first chance to make an impression and you choose to just sit there and say nothing.
