Back to Odesk today. I worked on my profile, did a few tests and then applied for a few job. I haven’t been offered a job through Odesk yet, but I like the fact that I am actually getting responses from the employers. This means that I am not out of the running yet. I have filled out applications for five jobs and gotten responses from four of them, I like those odds. They are much better than what I have gotten out here in the physical world.
Ghostblogger approved one of my submitted articles today and currently has it up for sale, the other article was rejected for formatting. I am not sure what the issue is with the format because it looks good on my computer, I might have to fire up one of the other systems and see if a different operating system views it differently. (I have encountered that before).
So far I have been managing to write one article per day. Yesterday I was clueless for anything to write on so I opened the Thesaurus and grabbed the first word I saw, ‘Bad’. It is actually more difficult than you would think to come up with a few hundred words based around a word, but I managed to force it out. Today’s was easy, it was about one of my favorite products. I have a few other articles I have written as demo articles, but I can’t put those as public at least until they are rejected. For now they can stay in my private portfolio.
I also got the hard copies of my professional resume today. I don’t need a professionally done resume, I have been told that mine is pretty good. I only got it done because it was part of my severance package and this way I have two separate versions I can send out. If I don’t get a bite on one style who knows, they might on the other.A.
