Get a job, hippie!

I don’t graduate until December of 2013 but it is never too early to start looking for a job. I found what I believe to be a great career advice article. The points made in the article seem like good ideas.
I also feel the urge to pull my portfolio site until I can make it look better after seeing some of the examples. I’m in Web Design 2 right now so I should be able to fix it up soon…

Let me know what y’all think about the article, has any of these things worked for anybody?
