    Getting your foot in the door is the first, and often trickiest part. You might try volunteering at a local Freenet, somewhere you can add some hands-on experience to your degree. I found that smaller companies can be a great place, even if you go in as first tier help desk - every bit of experience gives you exposure to the work, and the proper connections. Good luck!
