Photo by Daniel StarrasonIf you're a WordPress freelancer, or if you are just looking for some pocket change earned thanks to your WordPress hacking skills, how are you supposed to get some homework to do? How to find your daily WordPress job?

The mandatory thing to do is to subscribe to the wp-pro mailing list. A few times a day, people are posting in there seeking for assistance in various fields (coding, theme designing, installing…)

The official WordPress Jobs covers also a wide variety of topics: you can post and look for job offers regarding Programming, Designing, or even Blogging.

WordPress Job is a website that WordPress freelancers are going to follow: it's aggregating WordPress job offers (several every day) from the main freelancers' sites such as ScriptLance, RentACoder, GetAFreeLancer. Be warned though, competition there is really harsh and bids outrageously low :)

General job listing sites can be efficient, too. Simply Hired returns quite some results when looking for "wordpress", mostly coming from Elance and oDesk.

What else? Do you know or use another source for WordPress job offers?

    not to add to the competition but craiglist also has a pretty good selection of clients I've picked up work from. The only problem is you cannot search globally across all locations. I live in Austin, TX for example. So I can setup a feed for the keyword 'WordPress' in the Austin location.

    Also another suggestion is to to just add a lot of WordPress content to your personal site. I've found more clients via my site than wp-pro or craigslist.

    I've been a full-time freelancer since August 2007 working 95% in WordPress and have not missed any meals.
