Just Because

I’m not actually qualified for this position, having only a tiny bit of PR work experience, but I still want to apply on the off-chance I’d get an interview. No, it’s not the job for me, but I’m really, really curious. Funnily enough, I saw this posted in The Guardian, which is a lefty, anti-royal newspaper. (You want royalists? Read The Times.)

What do you think? Anybody out there want to give this a whirl?
