Unfortunately, my college doesn't offer any job placement or career assistance programs, so I'm pretty much on my own finding a job. I'm still young (23) and I've never had a real professional job before, so I don't know how to go about looking for one. I've only ever worked in food service or retail where you just walk in, ask if they are hiring, fill out an application and wait for them to call you. I live in Fairbanks, Alaska. Does anyone have any advice on how I can get started in my career?
