Hello Kate and thanks for your question.
To be frank, since you are in a service business, it's a bit harder to find a job without making trips to Laguna Beach to talk with employers personally. However, you can make your job search considerably easier by working with a reputable job placement company located here in Califorrnia. Start with job search websites, which often will direct you back to a job placement counselor. A job placement agent will often be able to set up interviews for you so that you can minimize your travel and time here in California when looking for a job.
