work or work experience?

hi,
im a uni student, majoring in animation and graphics. Ive spent heaps of my time learning 3d modeling on my own.
Im in my third year now and am looking for work in 3d or even just work experience. I can model just about anything from a car to a human character. Can someone plz give me some advice at least?

my e-mail is alley_cat937@hotmail.com

Advice on what exactly?
How to get work experience? Well there is a thread on the difficulties of that.
How to get a job? Other then saying "create a folio of your best work and pimp it" there is not that much else we can do. Most of us are still looking for work also.

have you got a site where we can see some of your work?

I'm not sure if you happen to be in Sydney or Canberra, but Microforte is always on the lookout for extra artists. Send them a show reel, a resume, and an email, and see what happens. It's a good idea to do this with any company you're interested in working for, even if they don't currently have any positions advertised.
