how to get into interior design …?

I am currently doing a interior design diploma (a home distance course) as i am unable to do a full time course as i need to work. The course is fantastic and i'm doing well. My problem is i expect to finish the course before the end of next year around August/september time and i have no idea where to go from there. How do u break into the industry of working in interior design? How hard is it? Im a very ambitious person and part of me thinks set up your own company. But i know i will need to build up a large portfolio first. so im a little stuck. i intend to get some work experience next year but can't find any sites on the net that point me in the direction of work experience for this type of industry. Any help would be great. im 20. live in the UK.

The following sites provide different options.

Good luck
