Put together the strongest portfolio you can-- show variations in type of drawings, technciques, etc. Also, try to "stretch: your instructor to get you beyond the mundane easy CAD operations, into true detailing, utilization of varied line weights, and drawings the "sparkle"-- just a bunch of closely related lines produced by CAD show what CAD can do, not what you can cod; they just don't do it. You need to show that you can go beyond just being a CAD jockey and be a true drafter with some depth, who knows what systems and materials are and what they can do. Try to get instruction in architectural materials, construction, etc. CAD is a vehicle or tool, NOT an end-all-do-all; it is another means of getting there. "There", is truly communicating valuable information as necessary! Good luck!
