Tip no. 1 - any experience is good experience so try to get jobs where ever they are available. Another trick is emailing architecture firms and design studios if they need an intern. Lots of places are too busy to even post jobs so contact them and show initiative.
Tip 2 - stay up to date with the industry and innovative technology, as a students we have the advantage of not being stuck in our ways and everything is possible. Don’t let people shut down your ideas, it’s a very subjective industry but if you can sell your concept that’s all that matters.
Tip 3 - practice AutoCAD/Vectorworks/Revit/SketchUp etc as much as possible!
Good luck xx
