    I'm looking for my first IT job, though I have no experience or Certificates, I'm offering my services for free. I have a letter ready to be sent to small companies with, let's say, 5 - 10 employees, so they don't have an in house IT department, but big enough to require some help.

    Anyways, I was just wondering what type of companies would have a small amount of employees and may require IT help 'for free'.

    If there is any other help or information, please post away and remember, I appreciate it very much.

    Special Brew!
