Based on the heading of the step, one should understand that this where the name for the profile are added. Users will be given two options to choose as their Display Name and it is up to your discretion which one you prefer.
Add a profile picture here by clicking on the upload link and selecting a file from your computer. It is highly recommended that the picture look both professional and be real. A flamingo flying into the sunset may look pretty but from an employer’s point of view it is as attractive as raw broccoli.
Title and Objective
Add a title and objective statement here. Try to keep it brief and precise. Your life story is not what is required, only the elements of the story that can land you projects. It is best to talk about a specific set of skills and just how brilliant at them you are.
Setting your Price
This is the tricky bit. For new writers it is important to remember that a low rate is more advisable. However, as your experience and reputation increase, the rate can always be increased later on.
Add your level of English from the options and be honest as your future contracts will depend on it. Choose the various categories based on your skills and set your visibility to ‘Everyone’
The Final Hurdle
You’re almost done! Fill out the remaining details, which will be needed for payment and viola...you now have a shining beacon of an Odesk Profile!
