I've had success with Craigslist and indeed.
My current job was posted on my colleges website.
My new job at a school was posted on the school district's website.

So sometimes you have to kind of know where you want to work and see if they're hiring. Or if you at least know the field you want to work in, sometimes there'll be specific sites for that.

I liked Indeed when I was job searching, but I also made use of Craigslist.

Scour websites of places you like, a lot of them have a "careers" page and don't link their jobs elsewhere because they want applicants to do their research. That's how I found the Global job posting!

It really depends on your industry. I have a friend who's a CPA and she (and most of her classmates) had to go out and hunt down the companies she wanted to work for and contact them. They also recruited at her school, and interns would sometimes go on to work for companies they interned with.

The graphic design studio I worked at was similar. I found them on craigslist, but I started as the receptionist. The designers would apply directly to the company, or be found through word of mouth. They rarely ever advertised job openings.

Word of mouth, actually, applies to my CPA friend as well. If you know someone who works at a company you want to work for, it helps. And especially in the film business, it's all about who you know. To get your foot in there, you have to work for free for a while to get to know people, or go to a good film school and use your fellow students and the teachers to network.

IME, Craigslist is mainly full of people who don't want to pay what you're worth.

The site is a great resource. The federal government is always hiring in an extremely wide range of jobs, ranging from scientists to food service workers. From what I've seen, federal benefits and pay are almost always much better than the same job in the civilian market.
