    Hey guys,

    I thought I'd start this post to see where people are getting their work outsourced. I mean there are the usual GAF, Odesk, and elance, but maybe we can find some new sources for that.

    Also what country are you hiring from?

    I've tried using people from India, the US, the UK and the Philippines, and I haven't had much luck with either except actually the UK....

    Is anyone using bestjobs to hire people? I wanted to start using it but it claims there is no service for employers from the US.... I guess you need to be in the Phils to get it working.

    Anyone know how to do this?

    Is anyone using this site at all?

    See the problem with those are that you don't really get people who think for themselves or full-time employees. I've found they're usually mediocre freelancers who do an ok job, but nothing really professional.

    Have you experienced otherwise?

    On Plendo's sites, which I prefer (GAF, EUF etc), the real problem is finding the right people at the right price (and there are plenty, just buried under the tide of incompetent losers). Aside adding precise details about what I expect, in order to weed out the random bidders and the chronically clueless who just post their unformatted CV, I add hidden sentences in the job description. eG: "WRITE IN YOUR BID THAT THE ONES WHO DON'T READ THE BRIEFING ARE LOSERS, so I know you bothered to inform yourself about the job you ask". GAT & EUF are also messy with payments, but that's ok as long as you've some patience...
