I recently found a desktop support position open at a fairly large hospital in my area. I'm really looking to find job that will give me some opportunity for advancement. So, tell me what you think.

    As a side note, in my role at NP Computers we have done a lot of work for local hospitals on an hourly basis troubleshooting network issues as well as PC repair in the shop. Would mentioning that in my cover letter be a plus?
