On the page for submitting a quote, what is one expected to put in the "message" box? As you can see, I am new to this whole process and finding it rather complicated.

Whatever you feel is important to the outsourcer Sep 13, 2005

Hi Johnke,
Did you see the hints provided regarding your quote title? The title should summarise the essence of your offer to the job poster (=outsourcer), while the Message box is used to convey a brief message to the outsourcer, for example:

- why you are particularly well-placed to take the job;
- details regarding your specific, relevant experience;
- other information that is important.

In essence, this box contains the same details which you would pass on when responding by e-mail.

HTH, Ralf
