The Key to Getting a Job on Elance
Apply to jobs often, early and be consistent about it. You know the saying – “The early bird gets the early worm”. When you start work in California at 9am, it’s already 6pm in Europe, and 11pm in some other country where there is also another Elance contractor bidding for your same position. This means you must get up early, apply to jobs and monitor responses you get from potential employees. If they ask for a sample of work, send it and be quick about it. Don’t delay.
You will be Successful: Success is measured in how fast you get up after you fall down.
You will not get many of the jobs you apply for. This is not failure. When you don’t get one job – NO MATTER HOW QUALIFIED YOU ARE – move on to the next one, and the next one, and the next one. Keep on keeping on until you find that job. Being successful is how fast you get up when you fall, in this case, falling is not getting a job you apply for. If you stay down, you’ll never get a job. But guaranteed, if you keep on applying, you will get a job.
Sidenote: One of Victoria Secret’s top Models of all time – Tyra Banks, got rejected by over 20 modeling agencies when she first started out. Imagine That! 20 modeling agencies. I can’t say I would have made it past the 3rd or 4th rejection. I probably would have given up, sat back in the sweet by and by and wondered WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN. I would have licked my wounds and said, THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY MISSED OUT ON. But that would be acting Dumb, dumb and dumb. We’ve all done it, but let’s cut that out.
If you want to data entry jobs from home without investment or any other type of job, know that there will be competition because working from home is attractive. Just get up every day, learn to work the system and you will find success.

To My 18 and Under Friends
Yes, you must be at least 18 to sign up on Elance and you know why… you have to be of legal age to contract with an employer. In contracting with an employer you are being held responsible. The law holds all teenagers under 18 in a special class of citizens, you are protected in other words from being taking advantage of in contractual situations because you may not understand alot of contractual language.
This being said, you are allowed to work with your parents supervising you. They would have to sign up on Elance and you could work with your parent to complete assignments. Work under the guidance of your parents.
