Next job site on our list of the ultimate resources for freelancers, part-time and work from home job seekers is CreativeHotlist.com. The web site focus is on: Job Searches, Portfolios and Recruiting for Graphic and Web Designers, Writers, Photographers and Illustrators.
The website is free, you just need to create an account. Job search is by:
In fact, the job site functions like most of other similar services: you can post your resume, you can track certain vacancies with your Hot List, search marketplace, etc.
Now let’s see how the company positions itself:
Creative Hotlist is a customizable online application for connecting talent, companies and services.Much more than a job site for the creative community, Creative Hotlist has a sophisticated search engine and enables users to find individuals, companies and resources for any aspect of the creative marketplace including job openings, creative services, artists, designers, programmers, printers,service bureaus, schools and clubs.
Creative Hotlist provides unique features for both individuals and firms. Individuals can post resumes, job-wanted listings and online portfolios. Companies and Organizations can post information about capabilities and services and from the same account, post job openings and, through the acceptance of resumes online, manage a hiring search.
What ultimately makes our site so unique are the advanced search capabilities and the ability to save searches in a personalized virtual filing system. Users can search for individuals and firms by keyword, location or level of experience.
Search results can be further filtered by keyword, location or experience and sorted alphabetically, by the posted date orgeographic location. Sorted results can be saved, filed and accessed anytime.
It is hard to say where they get their job postings from: it would be an advantage if they were unique and not re-printed from craigslist.org and similar job boards. The website is US focused.
My search for freelance web developer position returned 231 matches. Not bad. But when I started to browse them I discovered that most are outdated and submitted months ago.
CreativeHotlist.com is a service operating on a creative job marketplace. They do not specialize in freelance, work from home and similar sectors. But they are free and their job database includes enough freelance and other positions to visit the website now and then.
