Looking for work part 1

As I was browsing the 'Net this morning, I chanced upon the Dutch Heart Foundation website. And found they were advertising for staff. One job in particular, that of Information Officer, appealed to me; but the closing date for applications was given as 24/02, so I had to move fast. I don't know that I've ever written and sent off an application e-mail within half an hour of hearing of the job before! Now we'll just have to wait and see if my having acted in haste will give me cause to repent at leisure later on.

I quite fancy the idea of going to work for a non-profit organisation, after almost 15 years in a corporate environment where everything is geared towards maximising profit; a pursuit that I personally have no interest in. I'd much rather work towards the common good, and educating the public by warning them of the risk of heart disease and advising them as to how to minimise that danger seems a much more worthwhile job to me. Although at present, I don't know the first thing about heart disease, I'm sure I could learn. Meanwhile, I hope I didn't rush my application too much to secure an interview...
