Theme-Park Design

Universal Orlando: A recent graduate looking for work in the Theme-Park industry

Ok I am a recent university graduate from the United Kingdom with a Degree in 3D Interior Architecture. I have always been fascinated by Theme-parks and the world in which they create and immerse the public in. I am just wandering if anyone has any tips or words of advice for me? I know it is an extremely hard profession to break into, its the same for any design work really. The main thing is i'm not from the United States where most of these Jobs are available, what can I do to better my chances?
Thank you

Disney has a post grad programme, you can try them maybe? Otherwise look at Merlin, I think they have some things on their website.
