Finding a job in marketing (digital) in CA (SF/Bay Area, San Jose etc)

What are the best resources/avenues/contract agencies to get hooked up with regarding getting a marketing job (digital/online) within the Bay Area (California).

Need some pointers on career sites/resources for finding a marketing (digital) job in California in the Bay Area. The person in question has over 6 years experience with most of it in the online/digital arena with fortune 500 companies. Also he is a US citizen so no issues around visa. Curious what are the best places to look for beside the usual (monster/career builder etc.). Open to direct to hire or contract.

Thank you for all responses.

Authentic Jobs (link goes to marketing jobs in SF) is usually pretty good for techy jobs, if you don't already know that site.

Not to be too snarky, but if you're looking at Monster and CareerBuilder you're on the wrong track. Most companies are posting on LinkedIn, Craigslist, and also it's a good idea to make a list of companies you're interested in and check their websites regularly. I also use Indeed which will pick up company website postings as well as drecky ones like Monster.

The Creative Group (part of Robert Half International) is a legit recruiter and has a fair amount of jobs, but their recruiters are really hit or miss. The agency is very much "don't call us, we'll call you." That said, I just met with a recruiter there on Monday and had an interview Tuesday, so my opinion of them is improving.

There is a newish agency called Betts that specializes in recruiting for startups. I really liked my recruiter there and had a good interview, but the job wasn't a good fit.

Creative Circle is another big-ish one like TCG but their recruiters are a little more personable than your average TCG recruiter.

I was going to say that my favorite jobsite is

I know I'm getting my resume to the hiring manager or HR Recuiter (most are posted with the person's Linkedin profile), and I usually get a call for every job I apply for!

I have some really specialized experience, but I've been very pleased with how responsive the folks are on
