Moderately good doesn't sound all that good to be honest. You're going to be competing with people who have excellent folios. Are you just being modest?

It also matters who you reach out to. Start networking and taking people for informationals at your dream company

Potentially a dumb question, but for the employment history part of the application, should you include internships? If so, do you annualize the amount of your internship pay? I’ve included them in my resume but feels a little weird to put them at the same level as my first full time job.
