Portfolios are important
Attending the Game Development conference for students at Hull University gave me a little bit more of an idea as to what companies are looking for in perspective graduates (and more importantly interns in my case) that they are thinking of hiring. The thing that came across to me as the most important is the idea of an up to date portfolio. If you haven't come across one of these before, a portfolio is basically a showcase of everything that you've done, presented in a manner that is pleasing to the eye.
In my case my portfolio is my website, so I've just been spending half an hour or so updating it to reflect my current projects and accounts (I've opened an account on Codepen). You should do this too, and if you haven't got a portfolio set up, you can create one for free with Github Pages. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, you could also create a blog using Jekyll - Github pages supports this too, and it lets you create blog posts as markdown documents (like I do for this blog, although I wrote my blog engine myself), and it automatically transforms them into a blog post on your website for you. You can even use the Github web interface to do everything here!
If you comment below or get in touch with me in some other manner, I might feature a selection here on this blog.
