Macworld Reviews Behance.net

Industry magazine Macworld recently reviewed social networks and noted the Behance Network as “the largest and most feature-packed of the social portfolio sites.”

Macworld points out some of the differences between the Behance Network and the more traditional job-posting sites, “On job-listing sites like Monster.com and bidding sites like Elance, employers and clients must post an ad, then sift through the resulting flood of applications or bids; Behance works the opposite way. Its search-powered sieve lets clients examine profiles and portfolios for just the right skill-set and style. Then it’s the client who initiates contact privately and only to available, pre-qualified freelancers or job candidates.”
