Go online and find everything you can on engineering or the website itself to offer. Sometimes software engineering have their own business website.
You seem very well qualified, I would go through your resume, and critique for keywords. Next, I would work on my cover letter to make sure it lists all of your qualifications, preferably in bullet proof format. Check organizations that address QA Engineering, and see if they have a monthly meeting, go back to your college professors to see if they can help with contacts, maybe through another college. Go through the companies you are interested in, and go through the phone list on the web, contact the Engineering Manager, or others in the engineering department to look for networking opportunities (possibly introduce your self through email. Join Linked In, as this is a website for professional, and there are tons of HR people, recruiters, and management people on Linked In. Good Luck...
