If it is your first job then if you offer to work for free for the first week then this will help a lot. The only thing they lose is precious time getting the right person. As far as you go...what else will you be doing during that week. I also found that for my first job, door to door calls helped. I have been in the situation of "entry-level" twice in my life since I moved countries at a relatively early stage in my career. In addition, when I moved I had no knowledge of the local language. In my case, both times personal contact played an important role in being selected for a post. The first time was as junior electronic engineer and the second time was as a software engineer. Both times I was selected by the technical director of the company. Also don't be pushy.
