When I review candidates for UX jobs it's all about the portfolio. You
need more pieces that demonstrate your applicable skills in the UX
work you want to do. Specifically, deliverables in the skills you
mention on your site: wire-framing, walkthroughs, persona development,
Internships are a great way to get experience. I would also suggest
doing volunteer projects. You may find opportunities in professional
UX organizations or you can find a good match with local nonprofits.
Be strategic in the volunteer work that you do and the connections you
make, attend professional events, and you may find more opportunities.
Many good jobs are never advertised.
