With the start-up of collisions in the LHC in 2009 the fundamental physics entered the most exciting era of our generation. Proton-proton collisions at LHC probe tiniest distances ever achieved in a laboratory, and there are strong arguments suggesting that new physical principles should be detectable at these scales. The LHC could shed light on the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking, any associated new phenomena at the Terascale and possibly the origin of the dark matter. Final states containing missing transverse energy (MET) and jets are among the most common signatures of physics beyond the SM. I will discuss the experimental difficulties of searches involving MET and jets at the LHC and how they were overcome at CMS. I will review the latest results from CMS, including searches for Higgs boson, SUSY, leptoquarks, extra dimensions and more, and will discuss the future prospects of searches at the LHC.
