How do I start doing free lance video work?

Question by Mikey: How do I start doing free lance video work?
I am a broadcasting student about to graduate. I figure I will try and get a job back home at a news studio, but I also want to start free lance video work. Where can I go to get jobs? I can’t find any websites that are specified in my area. How do you start working? My professors never really covered this.
