investigating the design industry

I am interested in changing careers to ID. I have no experience in it and a Bachelors degree in Business and have worked in business for the last several years as an account manager. I do realize that without the training I can not get an ID job, but would still like to get involved on a paid basis to get the full feel of the industry. What recommendation do you have? What jobs are there in the design firms that I can get which would get me close enough to see if this is what I really want to do?

probably the only thing you are going to get is a job in business development or project management, no hands on design work, without training. But this might be a good way to observe designers in action and see if this is what you want to do.
