Guys I am also new here. But luckily I got job early. The key here is for us newbies, is to set an optimum hourly rate for start. No one is going to hire you if you have such a high demanding rate. Other than this, I guess the thing which gets you an interview, is being object oriented. Look what are you applying for, what would they like to read? Your list of qualities? I don't think so. They would want to see the solution of their problem. If you come up with a good idea, engage them and raise their curiousity. Once you get an interview, its on you how you would seize the opportunitiy.
I hope this will help.
