Best organisations for user rather than customer IT Support

    I need to target different types of organisations and I'd appreciate if anyone can add to this tiny list I have.

    - NHS
    - Schools, Colleges, Uni's
    - Councils
    - Police
    - Big Call Centres - manage those PCs
    - Other large firms that have many computer users and don't use an external IT support service

    IT Support would involve supporting internal users, colleagues, as opposed to customers, and I'd think they would be more respectful to me than a customer.

    Although I have a trial next week on a Helpdesk, I have just applied for ICT Technician at a school as I'd prefer supporting users.

    So what kind of companies in the yellow pages could I look for?

    Unfortunately regardless of whether or not the people you are supporting are external or internal, they are both your customers. Both will treat you nice one day and not so nice the next.

    To be honest, what kind of companies you should be looking for... Pick one anyone that uses computers :)

    Exactly this.

    To be honest, NCIT... I think you're overthinking and overanalyzing it all.
