Advice for teaching English in Germany?

I'm getting my CELTA in July in Germany, and I'd like to teach English there afterwards. Help me be a good applicant for teaching jobs and an attractive tutor for freelance work!

Relevant info about myself: I'm male, 25 years old, and have a BA in Philosophy with a minor in German Studies. I speak German fluently and studied abroad there in 2007-2008. I've never taught classes before, but I'm not scared to speak in front of a group or classroom.
I'll be doing my CELTA in Hamburg during July, but after that I'll be moving to Baden-Wurttemburg for at least a few months. I'll be based in Heidelberg starting out (I know the city and a few people there), but I'm ultimately willing to move just about anywhere in Germany.
How can I make myself most attractive as an applicant for teaching positions at businesses or educational institutions?
To what kind of places should I apply?
Where can I work with a CELTA?
What should I wear to interviews? In the classroom?
What should I emphasize on any applications?
How can I make myself attractive as a freelance tutor?
Where should I advertise?
What else should I know but haven't asked about?
