Hello frenchs9867 !
Try going to craigslist. They have many job postings and other services that can help you get work as an intern or something. You can try http://www.inmotionhosting.com/employment/. They are hiring web designers and tier 1 support representatives.
I was wondering where I could find someone I could make a free website for. I am a student and I want to learn about wordpress or another cms and get some experience too. any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.
