    Worst candidates from Dribbble (lots of internationals and unrelated job applications). Average applications from Whitetruffle. The best through Designer News.

    Edit: I may try Authentic Jobs next time.

    We've had very good luck with Authentic Jobs.

    From the other side of the table, I've found that the best jobs are found on Authentic Jobs!

    Although, it kind of depends on the employer – I would say it's also best to follow the companies that you would really love to work for and keep an eye out for openings – not all employers post on job boards.

    On the discussion of job boards, how would any of you go about finding out about salaries in the Design field? How would you go about working out what to ask for in a salary review?

    If it's freelance help you are interested in http://onsite.io is curated with only experienced talent granted accounts. And then only matched candidates (skills, availability and location) can state an interest in positions. And it's completely free, for now.

    *disclaimer - OnSite is mine.

    Shameless plug - I created a job aggregator that pulls in the best jobs from around the web into a weekly email. I encourage anyone to check it out. http://devjobs.io

    Side note: This weekend I was working on pulling in salaries automatically into each email (from a variety of sources, onet and glassdoor). So stay tuned for that feature!

    CGHub had a good job board for illustrators and game developers before it closed down. Currently looking for something similar but haven't found anything even close to it.

    We have a design contractor just started last week. We used Authentic Jobs, Linked In, and Smashing Magazine. The job require to be on-site so we tried Craig's List as well. In the end, we found a very good candidate via Craig's List.

        In the Bay Area (California), Craigslist performs rather well from what customers have told me over the years. Just about everywhere else it falls short, also from what I'm told.

        George, I'd be curious to hear what the location of the job was?
