    If you want to start DJing publicly, it might be a good idea to create a mix CD to hand out to venue managers etc, or even just an MP3 to email to them.

    If you have a camera/camcorder that can record decent quality video, you might want to do a tenminmix and put it on YouTube. They're a great way to show off your skills in a short time that managers can actually be bothered to look at, and you can win decent prizes if you enter yours into the official DJTutor.com tenminmix competition. Here's mine as an example (and as shameless publicity of course):

    For the best results you should try to record the video on the camera, and record the audio by line-in onto your PC, then merge the two on Windows Movie Maker or something. It doesn't have to be flashy, you just have to prove you have some mixing skills.
