For Academia jobs, I used www.mathjobs.org, and it's quite good.

I will have a degree in Applied-Mathematics (Numerical Optimization and Operation research).
I am trying to apply for Industry jobs. However I am not sure how or where to apply. I heard the application process can be quite different than for an Academic position.

I am looking for templates of cover letters, and websites on where to apply for company jobs and any tips than can help me in the application process.

Hey math8.

If you are applying for government jobs you will need to do it a little differently than if you apply to the private sector (my experience in my own country Australia, but yours might be different).

I am looking for jobs in the private sector (I might not be eligible for the government jobs). In the US. Do you know of any websites?

There are numerous job search sites out there. One common source for job searches in the private sector is Monster (http://www.monster.com).

Since you graduated with a degree in Applied Mathematics, you can try checking out the Careers link in the SIAM website:

http://www.siam.org/careers/

I would also suggest setting up a profile on LinkedIn, highlighting your education, skills, and any publications you may have under your belt (since you're applying for academic positions, I'm assuming you would be completing your PhD shortly, and thus have a publication list).
