Well, first you should set your mind that which field you are skilled and on which field you want to continue your freelance career. Bidding lots of various jobs will just make your job application quota empty, nothing else! So, choose your favorite jobs category at first and then take a decision for bidding. As a beginner, you should choose two jobs category to bid.

After choosing your favorite job category, start bidding. Always try to bid as soon as the job posted as this will increase the chance of your win. Many employers want to get their job done as urgent basis, and in such job postings, you will have an opportunity to get a job in Odesk.

Check the employer’s payment history and past reviews. It will help you to make a proper decision for bidding job. It is suggested not to bid any job where an employer has poor reviews and no verified payment method. Don’t work for any employer who posts for a fixed price job but later asking for a test job unless an employer has a very good past track record. Asking for a test job is not a bad deal as an employer should have to be confirmed about your skills before hiring. Odesk doesn’t offer any mediation and some employers take this opportunity in an unethical way. I also had to face such cases, believe me; I still not find any solution. Any way, to avoid such a situation, now I try to avoid test task whatever the employer’s previous record is.

Anyway, if you are newcomer, try to bid lowest to get your first job in Odesk so far the concern is getting a job and making a good profile. Some employers are looking for the lowest bidder for some simple and easy tasks. For such jobs, this strategy has a high possibility to work. Remember that it depends on the nature of the job. For a web or software development task, SEO or quality content writing type’s jobs this strategy will not work. It is suitable for simple data entry, copy-paste type’s job.

You should be choosy while bidding for a job. Do not bid for any job where you have no possibility of getting work. Read full job description carefully and then make a bid. Many job seekers bid without reading full job description that bring nothing for them except making empty their application quota.

I am not telling that following above tips will bear any guarantee, but it obvious that these tips will increase the chance for getting a job. These tips are the solution that gives direction about how to get a job in Odesk. I have gone through this way once, and keep in mind nothing is easy in life.
