Start out by posting your employment requirements and needs here in this forum like this one did:
It might land you some leads.

and then start writing to those firms that you really want to work for that have an office located where you would like to (or convenient to where you want to) work.

A portfolio of your work is best to have...unless you can describe better how and what you have done. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words, and as meaningless as you might think your work is, you need to show what you have produced.

You can work on a student visa in some countries, but they are time limited and are based on the country issued to you. You might need a longer term working visa, but you will still have to travel out of the country for a period of time, unless you get a resident visa where you can stay the entire duration of your work. The visas will have to be set up through your employer or Sponsor of that country you wish to work.

If you work as a summer intern, you should be paid. If given a choice to work for little or no money and can afford to do so, then take the work experience as your start in the profession. I don't promote working for nothing as there are always places of employment willing to pay interns.
