You could also stalk the web for websites that’s poorly designed (or just don’t meet any standards at all), then try to contact the owners with an offer. You just got to start somewhere, then you can build up your own network and work will be easier to get.

I’ve also considered working as a freelance designer – with a strong focus on usability and accessibility – but since I work for a website at the moment (Norwegian Schoolnet), I get somewhat tired of being at the computer in my spare time.
