    ... for freelance/contract jobs online?

    I have been a designer for awhile now, and just got my site online about a month ago. Now that I have my online portfolio up I am looking to find contract jobs online, but everywhere I look people are asking for the designer to work in the company building. This would be great if I lived in one of the bigger cities in the States.

    So far I think my best bet is to subscribe to guru.com as a vendor guru, but that is $200 US (although on the plus side, some jobs offer upto $2000 US/job)

    So I was wondering where other people on here find contract jobs online. I am sure there are free postings somewhere.

    Alot of places online are tough to find work - I mainly use GetAFreelancer.com and ScriptLance.com, but the project vendors there expect you to work for next to nothing.

    BTW, a bit off topic - your icon looks exactly like my girl's icon she uses for livejournal.

    I think I am registered at getafreelancer.com (I think it was aka gofreelancer.com .. but a lot of International designers will work for very cheap! Like you said)

    My icon? Well, it's my face .. so hopefully this is an original. I captured it with my webcam. :P

    Where is your gf's icon?

    I have no idea where her journal is because I'm not supposed to read it.

    She just asks for my approval on the layout and images she uses.. that's all I know.

    I do have some pictures though.. you two look pretty similiar.

    EDIT: just re-read my post, wasn't trying to say you stole her icon or something. lol.. my apologies if that's how I came across. I was just nothing that she took an image and cropped it nearly identical to yours.

    I think you should show me a picture :P

    This is not the first time someone said I look like someone they know. Actually, I have had a person stop me on the street and call me Kathrine (twice).
