Moving from small freelance to large agency tenders


Junior Member
Hi all,

I've been successfully freelancing for a number of years, and now I'm a senior designer with an agency. My question is about finding tenders for design/advertising/marketing/branding work.

As a freelancer this wasn't too hard - there's any number of great forums and resources like this one for finding small-medium design jobs, one-off projects and reciprocal work.

However, where should one look for larger jobs? Are there any Elance-type sites that bigger, multi-national corps publicise their tenders? Does it just come down to "who knows who", or do you think someone in their marketing department uses Google to compile a list of companies they like the look of?
