Legal Question in Criminal Law in North Carolina

I was convicted of a misdemeanor marijuana citation this past february (caught with one marijuana joint) in the state of North Carolina. I wasn't arrested just written a citation. Anyways, being such a small amount of marijuana.....this is already giving me alot of trouble when applying for jobs. This is devastating to me. Is there anything I can do to keep this conviction hidden from public viewing AFTER being convicted?

yu have fallen into the classic trap of thinking yu could handle your case w/out a lawyer...yu now have a misd. conviction on your record which you may not be able to expunge...there are circumstances where you could have a misdemeanor expunged, but they are fact specific...i could tell you whether you qualify in 5 minutes (or less)...if expunction is not an option, then you can only try to attack the conviction by a motion authorized by statute...yu now have to get a lawyer...you certainly can contact me or any other attorney you are comfortable with to find out what to do...good luck
