Which website you mostly used as a job seekers to search for online freelancing Jobs? I prefer Craiglist the posted paid advertisement for the employers get great exposure. What about you?
Spamming is very common in each and every area of Internet business as its the most lucrative business for fraudsters. You have to be very choosy before applying for a freelancing job.heather said:I have tried looking at Craigslist for work but all I have found are scammers. Of course, in my area, jobs are hard to find so that probably keeps the ratio of good to bad low.
You can find a lot of scam on Craiglist. One has to be very careful while replying to a particular job listing on Craiglist. There are a lot of advertisement claiming to pay around $200 per day.tongyun said:Like SiddFisher, I've responded to some job postings on Craigslist, too, but have never had a reply. I was looking for something part-time just to bring in a little something extra.
I have also got cheated on Craiglist regarding a data entry job. I think hiraafreelancer and getafreelancer are the best option for Craiglist. You will find more trusted clients and job listing there.SiddFisher said:Yeah, but when the job poster doesn't respond to any potential employees, its kind of disheartening.
I have responded to two job posts but none of the posters replied to my mail.
Craiglist is currently flooded with a strong network of fraudent advertisement. One has to perform a lot of research before applying for a particular job on Craiglist.bluet said:Craiglist is good for the job advertisers. I know many people is looking for a job and if you need some employees, craiglist is the right place to put your job ads
You are right. Most of the Indian job listing are nothing more then fraudulent advertisement. I think Getafreelancer and Digitalpoint forum are few best sites to find a legal job for you.SiddFisher said:But there are many legit jobs available too!! Just ignore the ones that claim to pay you too much, and you're all set to go!
Getafreelancer and other freelance job listing websites are very competitive and a new guy would get easily overwhelmed(like I was!!) And moreover, they pay you peanuts compared to other job boards!! Most sites like GAF, getacoder,rentacoder,scriptlance are the same, the pay very less for even big jobs, like sales copy writing!!
BTW, do you apply to jobs on the Indian listings or overseas??
I've only applied overseas because of the fraudulent job listings by agents in the Indian craigslists!!!
I am agree with you on this fact. One can also try Elance and Odesk to find high paying jobs of their choice. Their clients really pay much higher then GAF or digitalpoint.SiddFisher said:I think you didn't notice that I said something about pay-in-peanuts. I want to emphasize on the fact that job networks like GAF and digitalpoint tend to overwork the employees and pay less.
Private clients pay much more than that.
Every Job seeker has to pass through an online test before registering as an employee. Their employer are trusted one and there are no chance of any fraud as we can see on Craiglist and Digitalpoint forum.SiddFisher said:You've got a point. Elance is the most highly paying jobs network out there. Odesk isn't that high paying but the best plus point of Odesk is the test system. We can prove our worth with the tests on the site.
