Sorry to say that you will be very lucky to have anyone recommend specific companies which they use. Marketers are always quite "discrete" about such things.
Personally I've had terrible success trying to interview candidates via oDesk. In my case half the time they quite literally lie about their experience. The other half of the time they are too lazy to attend interviews which is very frustrating when I sit up half the night to interview them and my job's offer about 3 times more than the going rate... That's happened quite a few times. :(
There must be many truly great contractors out there but with my luck so far I've failed to find any reliable ones. When you do find some reliable workers then do your best to keep them and pay them well for their efforts.I've given up on oDesk and will use other sites from now on.
