If you are a Ph.D. graduate, the best way to find jobs is through
your advisor, people you know who are also in your research field,
as well as journals, email list, and newsletters in your field.
In other words, the best place is your own network of people and
communication channels. Ph.D. graduates need to start looking for
a job no later than 9 months before graduation.
For master's graduates, if you don't have much work experience
in the US, a good place to find your first job is college recruiting
events. When employers come to your campus, they are not looking
for someone with at least 2 years of working experience, as most
employers do elsewhere. Your school probably has a career center
(or placement service, etc.). You need to sign up there and participate
in their job-searching seminars, employer information sessions,
and on-campus interviews. Master's graduates need to start looking
for a job no later than 6 months before graduation.
