    It goes without saying that an online portfolio is a necessity. Even if you haven't got 'real' work on there. Create some fun projects with a 'real-life' process and get some case studies online etc!

    I've contacted companies directly (only twice to be honest), and emailed them showing my passion for what I do and explain why I want to work for them. You need to make sure any potential employer knows what value you will bring to their company. The two interviews I have had - I've landed the job!

    Final words - be confident in any interviews. Show that you know what you're talking about. But also, be honest. If you're unsure or aren't as strong in a certain field to others, just say. You can always learn new things, how did you get here in the first place!?
