There are a number of strategies that you can take to find an entry-level job, however, there are not any major web sites that I am aware of that focus only on entry level positions. The most effective method of finding a job is through building your network. The best place to start for this is on LinkedIn. First, take some time to research and determine companies that you would like to target and in what functions. Then search LinkedIn for people in those companies and functions and request to connect with them. Once you have connected, reach out to them and ask if they would be willing to have an informational interview with you. The purpose of this interview is just to educate you on what you need to do to start a career with that company. Then from these interviews, they will often point you in right direction for your first job.
Another strategy is to participate in the on-campus recruiting events at your school. Get you name in front of the companies in which you are interested and get on their radar. Most companies target certain schools, so these events are the best method to make those connections.
I would also recommend to still look through the web sites on a daily basis. The job board aggregator sites of Indeed and SimplyHired make this a little easier by scraping all of the major job boards into one site. Also, frequently visit the career pages of the companies that you are targeting.
