Do the oDesk skills tests really matter when you consider the answers are available everywhere on the web? Thing is, the upside of getting high scores on these tests is very limited; however, the downside of NOT having them is enormous. Here’s what I mean: Do the Tests Matter? They matter in the sense that if they’re not there clients will wonder why. Imagine a client looking at 10 different freelancer profiles. Nine of them have a PHP test with a score in the top 1% and one of them doesn’t have it at all. That will stick out to

Why You’re Not Getting Hired on Elance and oDesk When I first started out on Elance, I really had no clue what I was doing. In fact, I was pretty nervous about the whole thing. I had this sinking feeling that nobody was going to hire me and I’d quit the whole thing feeling like a failure (and maybe give up on coding for good). And, at first… that’s exactly what happened. The first few freelance jobs I bid on I got undercut by another developer willing to do the work for a price so low it made me question

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
John has a particular knack for the development and training of others.
John really delivers!
John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
John is an excellent teacher.
John Morris is exceptional in his ability to give focused insight into Freelancing and starting one’s business. His direct methods inspire confidence in his honesty.
Very professional worker who is extremely knowledgable in WordPress and Wishlist Member. I would definitely hire again.
John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.
I’m a fan. I have completed several of John’s courses. I find him very knowledgeable and he has a great delivery.
John has a habit of over-delivering on the expectations he sets up. That’s why he’s the best.
Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.
On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”
I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.
John did an outstanding job on my project. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him on future projects.
John is a man of integrity, who gives generously of himself to projects and people he cares about.
John is top-notch and a great guy to work with.
