Hi dude I am also a odesker. I found a job hourly about 2 weeks ago it was my first job. I was waited for few months for it. Here is my suggestion learn SEO very well before try to get job. Don't use this sentences like " I am very well known seo or I am very good at seo" Instead try to focus buyers needs. Tell somthing about that shortly and wisely. Give a short solution at application. It will impress your buyers. Give some Skill tests which are seo related. try to make good result. There has so many competition at odesk . I know personaly some seo guys who didn't know SEO basic without forum posting, social and directory submission but they got 4/5 works at a time. They will fall one day when they get caught. Become a good seo you will get your job.
