Did any of these sites help you land your first job or do you think word by mouth is better?

Actually, I have not yet used these so pretty much right now I am going by word of mouth. My former IT teacher has been very helpful. I suggested these because sometimes word of mouth doesn't give you the get-up-and-go your freelancing might need.

Elance isn't worth it because you'd be competing with the industrious folks in India who can quote a site for pennies. Plus, you have to pay to use the program. Not worth IMO. Haven't checked the others but will do so... let ya know what I find!

I think WOM is best but that only comes with experience and clients.

Your list is good. Include oDesk too. I find it great when I was using it before.

Well yeah, with the Indians bidding low on projects, this make it difficult for others to get a decent pay for a job.

Word by mouth - It might be true that it's better but I guess they are mostly the same. Difference is that the level of saying it. People who have experienced rags to riches in freelance would probably say the same thing as what is mentioned at the first post. You just have to persevere and be patient.

I agree that word of mouth is best. That's how I get all of my jobs and I am as busy as I can be with also working full time.

I also join networking and volunteer groups in my city so i meet many people regularly and get jobs through word of mouth that way.

I did a mailer recently and it didn't generate any jobs.
