How will you provide proof of your skills at oDesk?
As you go about completing your profile, the issue of having a portfolio at oDesk becomes compelling.
Probably, you have stated all your work experiences and through it, you are telling the employer about your writing prowess.
From among your accomplishments you do not have a single experience that was published online. So how shall you build your portfolio?
Below are three strong ways to build your oDesk Portfolio:
Scan and attach your published write-up
When you were a budding writer in high school and college, you surely had contributed several articles that were published in your school paper. Scan these articles and attached it in your oDesk portfolio.
Be sure that the article bears your name. Do the same with your master’s and doctoral paper. Scan the title page and append it to the oDesk portfolio.
