What is it?

We have made it easier for buyers to find active providers on our site.

We are making the profiles of providers who meet all of the following criteria private. Providers who have signed up, but who have …

  • Never earned any money on oDesk
  • Profiles that are less than 50 percent complete
  • Not been active on the site for more than 90 days (three months)

… will see receive email notification that their profiles have turned private. Providers who wish to continue being active on oDesk will have the ability to complete their profiles and become public at any time.

Providers: Haven’t completed your profile? Come back to our site, finish your profile, and set it to public to stay active in the search results.

Why did we do this?

With tens of thousands of providers on our network, we wanted to highlight providers who are actively working and ready to take on new job opportunities on oDesk. By making inactive provider profiles private, buyers will have an easier time finding providers who will respond to job interview requests.
