Some other things to keep in mind:
Linked In Profile
Get your LinkedIn profile up and running, it is the largest professional networking site. Make sure your profile is filled out properly with your profile, skills, interests and qualifications. This will help you build a professional digital footprint of your career and is by far the most popular resourcing site for recruiters so you need to be on it to be found.
If you are in a position to do an internship, definitely consider it. This is a great way to build up your experience that is relevant to the industry. Even a couple of weeks will give you real experiences to draw upon. It can help you to get your foot in the door and even if it doesn’t lead to anything it will start to build up your contacts for the industry you are working within.
You need to be aware that you have a digital footprint. Most potential employers will do a general search on employees. All the crazy times you have had at university have probably been recorded somewhere and despite the fact your potential employer has probably been there, done that and got the t-shirt, doesn’t mean they want to see it from a new employee. Make sure you settings on social media accounts are set to private. It would be worth deleting anything you deem highly inappropriate.
