  • This is a job board, not a billboard. Please think about if your post is appropriate. No B2B

  • click here to post your For Hire thread


  • No B2B (Biz 2 Biz, See /r/B2BForHire). For Hire does not mean like a taxi. It means like a person who wants someone to hire them to do a job. The original intent of the subreddit was connecting freelancers to gigs, not companies to clients.

  • Nothing illegal in the US, even if you're not in the US, because reddit is bound by US laws. If you think it might be illegal, assume it is. If you're not sure, feel free to message the mods.

  • As a rule, the mods will not facilitate any communication or resolve disputes.

  • adult oriented (cam girl, etc) jobs go in /r/NSFWforhire, see 1 and 2

  • much of the communication with submitters is via pm, so don't be discouraged if you don't see a lot of public commenting!

  • URL shorteners (like bitly) = insta-spammed, so don't use them

  • click 'flair' by your link to update things

  • How to protect yourself when working as or hiring a freelancer

  • designers, check out /r/designjobs

  • you might be interested in /r/jobs, /r/freelance, /r/resumes, /r/remotejs, /r/internships or /r/hireawriter. If you like virtual currency, try /r/jobs4bitcoins or /r/jobs4dogecoins. There's also /r/jobs4crypto.
