well one thing i'd like to apply for college for is something to do with computers mostly web design and graphics im not a pro but would like to learn. I dont have any experience in tech support for web hosting but because i've been around computers for so long i'm a fast learner and also have the motivation to be able to learn new things right now my current host is mith-host.com and they use cpanel so i already know a little about c-panel and i also know a bit about email.
m8, no major companies will higher you if you have had no experience. My advice would be to try and get into a hosting company and work for free. This way you will gain expeience and there will be a reference waiting for you when you have aquired your tech support skills.
