What job sites are out there that specialise in OR jobs, or that have a significant number of OR jobs?

Are there sites that focus more on academic/research positions, or on real-world vacancies?

How about the INFORMS OR/MS Job Bank?

You have to be a member of INFORMS to use the job placement service, and the other resource seems to be the classifieds, which has 14 jobs! That can't be the best resource...?

I suppose we should all be members of INFORMS...

Surprising how view jobs are in the job bank at the moment (and the April OR/MS Today listed almost nothing). Tough times or are the jobs being advertised elsewhere?

"few" not "view"

For academic jobs INFORMS mailing lists seem to be the best place. They have a number of different email lists and people always post jobs there. (For example there is even a list for a group named "Rail Applications Section of INFORMS" which is quite active)

As for industry jobs, if you are on LinkedIN.com you can join a number of groups based on your interest. You'll be surprised how active LinkedIN members are and how many jobs are being posted everyday.

So here it is:

OR/MS Today (the INFORMS member magazine) publishes classified ads for OR/MS jobs. There's a pretty good mix of academic and practice jobs. As Mike pointed out in a comment above, the current listings are kind of sparse. Partly, I think, the academic season is winding down, at least in the US. Also, the general job market is probably still kind of thin in general.

Also, if computation is your thing, the NA Digest (numerical analysis) posts a steady stream of positions, some of which might be relevant. Subscribe here.

Indeed.com is a good metasearch job site. It's basically a google for job search.

Also Careerbuilder.com is a decent metasearch site as well.

Looks like Booz Allen Hamilton may be hiring OR analysts. Which raises another question: is it appropriate to list sightings like that here? (Disclaimer: I have no connection to BAH -- just came across it accidentally.)

I don't see why it would not be appropriate.
