Help with job searching etiquette?

I recently graduated from college and in pursuit to begin my career. The work that is required of me involves working within a laboratory, manufacturing “health related” appliances. As far as job searching etiquette is concerned, would it be ill advices to call laboratories to see if there is a position available or would it be better if I went in with a resume on hand? Once I’ve handed my resume, how long am I to wait until someone has contacted me? For that matter, will I be contacted at all? If there are websites available for job hunting do’s and don’t please share them with me. I am very eager to get working in my chosen field. I look forward to reading your posts. Thank you.

Showing up in person is always best, but there is nothing wrong with calling. Aggressive is good. Justin James
