I am a recently graduated graphic designer. I would like to know if there are any worthwhile websites that I could present my portfolio and receive or look for job offers.
I have came across the following freelancewebsites by searching the web that seem to meet my criteria:
- Design Week: Freelance jobs
- oDesk: Freelance Graphic design Jobs Online
- Craigslist (the most famous website for people seeking for employers and employees)
I've also found two articles providing reviews on these types of sites:
- 50 Freelance Job Sites For Designers & Programmers – Best Of
- 17 Great Websites to Find Freelance Jobs
I am new to the online freelance market. As a result, I don't have any clue which websites are mainstream for graphic designers and illustrators (which are my specialties). It's not immediately discernible to me which sites are the ones that are not a scam and are also good place for establishing myself.
I'm mainly looking for the resources that experienced designers are familiar with. I'm looking to narrow it down to the ones that have been used by those established in the industry. As a result I decided to consult the matter here and ask for input.
