Hello I'm new here. I'm about to hire my first freelancer from Freelancer or Odesk or Elence. The project is a software and by budget is around 300$. I just want to know few things? 1. What's the best place to hire a freelancer? 2. Have you had any bad experiences hiring them? If so please mention those here. So I can be aware! 3. I used to think hiring freelancers for a professional project is just a waste of time. Do you think so? Thank you! Please help me.
