Once you have a decent portfolio, you should cold reach out to as many recruiters as you can via LinkedIn and using tools like hunter.io. Honestly just becomes a volume game, you're bound to land something if you just keep persistent. First few interviews or calls will be practice for your next ones. Just get the ball rolling!
