“Level Five, Department of International Magical Cooperation, incorporating the International Magical Trading Standards Body, the International Magical Office of Law and the International Confederation of Wizards, British Seats."
— Voice of lift at the Ministry of Magic, Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix


This month, as we talk about Life After Hogwarts, we focus on the Ministry of Magic. The Ministry of Magic is the well-known main governing body of the magical community of Great Britain. Its main purpose is the Preservation of Magical Law. It connects the British Government to the Wizarding World.

Many wizards and witches enter the Ministry after finishing their studies at Hogwarts. Well-known employees - past and present, of the Ministry, include Kingsley Shacklebolt (Minister of Magic), Amelia Bones (Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement), Arthur Weasley (Head of the Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Office), Mafalda Hopkirk (assistant in the Improper Use of Magic Office at the Ministry of Magic), and Nymphadora Tonks (Auror), among others.


-----

You are part of a group of graduating Hogwarts students fortunate enough to visit the Ministry of Magic Headquarters in Whitehall, London for an official exposure trip. Your group already visited the seven main Ministry departments: Magical Law Enforcement, Magical Accidents and Catastrophes, Magical Transportation, Mysteries, Magical Games and Sports, Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, and International Magical Cooperation, and you could not be more excited! You entered the Headquarters full of questions regarding your career options, intent on coming out with answers. But instead, you were even more confused, there were just too many choices!

It was nearly time to leave. As you stand by waiting in front of the Fountain of Magical Brethren at the Atrium for the rest of the group, you once again started thinking about your future.



Questions to get you started:

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?


Feel free to expand more on these questions, or add your own, to keep the discussion going! Please remember to show respect to one another’s opinions and answers.


Participation in this event will count towards February's Book of Records

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
i dont think i would be working at MoM, but thats only because i have seen myself working at St Mungos
+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
I think it would be interesting to work as an unspeakable. the only thing i do know is that they must do a lot of research. that would be very interesting.
+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
I would say probably Arthur Weasley. He is the most normal person with an interesting hobby. which just proves that the ministery has a place for every one
+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
i think with the 2nd wizarding war it tarnished its reputation, they did not do what they were supposed to do. if they had, there would have been stronger leadership and they would have been more proactive instead of leaving it to a child to solve their problems
+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?
i cant really think of anything.

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?

It's a possibility, but not truly no. This is because in the wizarding world, I see myself as either a magizoologist or a care for magical creatures teacher!

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?

I would work in the department for magical creatures probably. I would just love to do something within the magical creature category in the wizarding world!

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
Spoiler (highlight below to see it):


Well, none of the above really. I suppose I would be influenced by the fact that Buckbeak was condemned to death unnecessarily. I would stand up for the poor creatures who don't deserve to face a death sentence.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
Spoiler (highlight below to see it):


I don't think it does. Every time it is mentioned in the books, a disaster has happened. They succumbed too easily to Voldemort, showing they have rubbish security. Also, a gang of 14/15 year olds broke into the Ministry overnight. Fudge completely ignored all the facts. The departments aren't run properly at all! They couldn't do anything right.

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
It depends on the department, I would not like to work in the Transportation or Games and Sports department, as those are areas that do not interest me much. I would not like to work in the office reviewing papers all the time. But I would love to either have a powerful position with the ability to change something or be an Unspeakable involved in interesting research.
+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
As I said I would rather be an Unspeakble or Senior Under Secretary or something like that as it suits my interests and inclinations.
+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
I would say nobody, as I more go with my own inclinations, wishes, an my own nature. If I had to name someone it would be Hermione. Firstly because I identify with her, as I was really similar to her in many ways and secondly because she fights for house elfs rights and really tries to work for the benefit of both society and the individuals in it.
+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
I do not think it has a good reputation, not with the ministers that worked for it, such are Fudge, Rowle, Lestrange, Scrimgour and all. Not with Dolores Umbridge having gained the position she has gained from the ministry. Not with the actually good, but unpopular things the Ministry does sometimes, such as cauldron standards or broom check. I also do not think it always has served its purpose, mainly because power often was in the wrong hands and either went against people or was to benevolent against bad forces etc.
+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?
It depends on the minister in charge, so I could not say concretely

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
Possibly. There are enough different departments that there would be certainly something for me. But a few of the jobs outside of the ministry, like wandmaking or teaching at Hogwarts, also seem interesting as well
+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
I would want to be an unspeakable, pushing the frontiers of magics and discovering its secrets. This seems closest to my interest in science and research irl.
+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
None of the characters in particular would have influenced my choice, simply because we do not know enough about any of the unspeakables. Besides for the unspeakable-turned-death eater Rookwood, the biggest mention of any unspeakable is when Bode was murdered in Saint Mungos/
+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
It depends what time period this is referring to. During Bagnold, Fudge, and Scrimgeour's leadership, I do not think the ministry did a good job or had a good reputation. With Bagnold allowing Death Eaters to claim to be under the imperious curse to get out of punishment (and not giving Siriius a trial), to Fudge accepting bribes or "donations" from known Death Eaters and then allowing Umbridge to take control of the Dementors and then try to have Harry expelled, the ministry seemed pretty incompetant at times. Other points of note with this are Malfoy havin been tipped off and hiding all of his dark items before Arther Weasley led a group searching the house on suspicion of dark items being present, and the noted gambler Ludo Bagman also having an important role in the ministry.
However, from Pottermore and the Wikipedia, it sounds like things got better in the years after the war with Voldemort ended, when Harry was an auror and Hermione eventually became Minister for Magic

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?
What do you think advances in the muggle world, with computers, sattelites, and nuclear weapons, means for the security of the wizarding community?

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
Having been a government employee in real life, I suppose I could see myself working at the MOM. A lot would depend on the Ministry's stated mission and policies.

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in?
I think I would become an Auror.

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
Kingsley is certainly an influence. He is proud yet soft-spoken, and he is a powerful magician yet judicious in his use of that power.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
I think the MOM's record is spotty to say the least. Kingsley Shacklebolt was likely the best of the modern Ministers for Magic. But when a government is spearheaded by a narcissistic, paranoid leader who is more interested in protecting his carefully crafted image than actually governing for the good of the governed --- I'm talking about Fudge, not the real life nightmare the US is currently living through; but I find the parallels alarming.

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?
I would ask if there were a plan to officially revisit the Ministry's policies toward House Elves, freeing them from lives of forced servitude.

-glomps Mocca- Whoops, inappropriate forum, hahahah.

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not? Simply put: nope. I'm not one to enjoy working in an office or ministry; it's all a bit too.. clear-cut to me. I like having some freedom to express creativity and all that jazz, so I would be very unhappy working at the Ministry of Magic (although I must admit that some of those departments sound interesting, to say the least).

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else? Investigation Department, I think? The name caught my eye.

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so? Ohh, interesting question. Eh. Sherlock? I don't know anyone who works in the department, but Tonks is an inspiration in whatever choice, so I'll take that one.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not? I don't know about the reputation, but I have to hand it to them; they do a good job. I think dividing it into so many specific departments is definitely beneficial, and they deal with things correctly. Source: there are very few Muggles who currently are aware that wizards exist. Except for the HP fanbase, but let's not talk about that.

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her? What is your opinion on fluffy socks?

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?

I do and I don't. I've always worked for a larger corporation as a kind of cog in the wheel - mainly administrative work for the state government. However, I would like to think that I could co-found a magical pet and animal rescue. I feel that I would be able to do something like this with magical abilities, because with Muggle abilities I have neither the room nor the finances. Magic would make this a slightly easier thing. However, Ministry might be a good backup or springboard position.

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?

I would like to think that I would be suited for an Auror, but I think most magical folks would benefit from having a therapist or counselor to talk to. A magical marriage counselor, maybe? A Department of Magical Health and Human Services?

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Weasley, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?

Definitely Arthur Weasley. Level-headed, yet kind. Compassion plays a large part in his work, as well as the ability to put his foot down and stand up for what is right.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?

Ehhhhhhhh that's a tough question to answer. The Ministry has had it's ups and downs, as any large governing body has. It's also had it's fair share of corruption and misuse of power. I think eac day, month, year, the Ministry needs to prove it's openness and trustworthiness to the magical community. Trust is an ongoing thing, not and one-and-done.

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?

What part of the population do you wish you had served better, and what WILL you do going forward to better assist them?

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?

Not really. I wouldn't want an office job, or anything particularly political or dangerous in nature.

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?

If I had to get a position in the Ministry, it would be the Control of Magical Creatures, because I find magical creatures a fascinating subject, and I 'd want to ensure the department took the creatures' well being to be the most important matter.

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?

None to be honest, since I don't want to join. They are inspirational and aspirational sure, but the work load is too much from what I can see, so they would actually influence my decision not to join.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?

Not really. They always seem to get things wrong because they are too preoccupied with saving face and looking good to the general public than they are in the truth of the matter. Individual departments can have high standards - such as Aurors - but the Ministry as a whole looks like one sycophantic mess.

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?

What do you think is the main issues that need addressing in the wizarding world, and how do you plan to tackle them?

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
Yes, I do see myself working at the Ministry of Magic. It may not be the only choice I'll be contempating, but it will be one. I think that with my personality, I would be able to fit well in the Ministry and help enforce the laws and help maintain the secrecy of the Wizarding World.

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
I would lean more on the Dept. for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, and then Department of International Magical Cooperation, and Department of Magical Law Enforcement as an Auror. But who knows, each department has its perks.

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
None of them really, but I have seen a side of what they do for the Ministry and Kingsley and Tonks definitely are worthy role models to any Auror. Arthur Weasley's enthusiasm and love for his job is also definitely something to look up to.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
Yes and no. With any government, there can never be any good reputation without a bad. Whether one outweighs the other, though... I do believe, however, that the Minister is doing his best in paying attention to every situation the British Wizarding World and enforcing the appropriate actions to give solution to them. Hopefully, the departments have ejected any employees that do not uphold to the same zeal with improving the Wizarding World.

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?
What is the gravest situation are you currently handling in the Wizarding World and what are your current plans and strategy to solve it?

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
I could see myself working at the Ministry but it probably would not be my first choice. I say that I could see myself there because there are so many options, big and small tasks. It would not be my first choice because I don't know how well I would do working right beneath the "law" so to speak. Always having some head official breathing down the back of my neck would be very nerve wrecking!


+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
I think working for the Floo Network would be pretty interesting! I'm sure keeping track of all fireplaces and monitoring for misuse would be quite a tedious task.


+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Weasley, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
I would say that Arthur Weasley was an influence on my choice because of his curiosity for the way things work and ensuring magic is used properly.


+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
I think the reputation of the Ministry is reflective of the people who work there. While I don't believe they had a good reputation during the 90's I think it would have improved under the direction of Kingsley and Hermione.


+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?
I would like to ask them personally how they feel that the actions they have executed in their role have influenced the magic world as a whole. I'm sure I would get a very interesting answer!

No. I have no patience for politics and I'd want a more freeing, bohemian, set my own life kind of job like RL
+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
I'd probably be something sports related or something that rewuired travel and/or spell work.
+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
None. I would not follow any of the well-known paths

I think its reputation has improved since Harry Potter. I think it does its job which is regulate and protect the magical world.
+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?
Did you ever dream of being Minister or did it happen more organically?

Well let's start with the questions first, lol.

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
Not really, I tend not to do with authority figures and one generally does not start at the top in the Ministry of Magic, lol.


+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
If I had to be in the Ministry it would most likely be as an Auror or an Unspeakable. These two jobs seem to have the most independence to them and a little bit of excitement. I hate being bored

.
+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
Kingsley: He seems like his own person and very capable. But not just a yes-man either


+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
I think it needs a major overhaul. Fudge and Crouch did not leave it with a very good reputation. That takes time to fix too.


+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?
Why oh why the toilets?

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?

Absolutely. My dream job is to be the Wizarding equivalent of a lawyer, representing wrongly accused witches and wizards and prosecuting criminals to the full extent of the law. I want to use my Slytherin cunning to punish the wrongdoers of the Wizarding World and put them in their place.

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?

A Wizarding lawyer. Not sure if that equates to a member of the Wizengamot or no.

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Weasley, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?

Though Dumbledore wasn't a Ministry employee, I would consider him an influence based on his handling of Harry Potter's trial in 1995. He was quick and sharp, not letting the Minister or the Wizengamot manipulate the situation or plant any seeds of doubt. He was also able to back up his claims and provide evidence, which is always key. Hermione Granger is another influence, for she was the pivotal force for change in terms of House Elf rights and other rights laws. She does a great deal of good in her role, fixing the archaic laws and writing new ones to fit modern times.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?

It's had its rough patches in the past, but it seems to be stable now. There have been a great many changes for the better, but there's still room for improvement.

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?

"Have you considered doing a yearly review of laws that have reached a certain age so as whether or not to determine their concordance with the modern times and to decide on possible adjustments in case of their original instructions/terms being outdated?"

No. i dont like politics and i dont think i could stand politicians

If i had to become a MoM employee, i would choose Auror. i think they would travel alot rather than stay in office, so i prefer that.
+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
Kingsley Shacklebolt. I think he is most talented, loyal and good employee.
+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
I dont think it has good reputation with Fudge etc. But i do think they gain people trust back when Kingsley becm the Minister later since he is the person who actually involved/part of war and Order of Phoenix.

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?

I could see myself working there. In Real Life I work for my Local Government and have done for 10 years so I am used to working in a civil service setting, and enjoy providing public services for people.

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?

Something not too dangerous! I would probably take a fairly middle-of-the-road job like something in Magical Law Enforcement.

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?

I would say I am inspired by all of the Minstry's employees. They work for the Ministry because they are passionate about working to serve the public, and so am I. They all contribute to the wider Ministry picture in their own ways, and do so for the right reasons.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?

I do think the Ministry has a good reputation. Without the Ministry the wizarding world would fall apart pretty quickly, and the services it provides are invaluable. Sure, the Ministry has done some things it probably isn't proud of, but what large-scale organisation hasn't?

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?

What inspired you to become Minister for Magic?

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
Kind of. I like being in charge of things, or being responsible of big things, but I'm not sure if I would work there because there's a lot of careers within the Ministry of Magic that don't seem right to me.
+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
Hmm...not sure again. I might work as a member of the Floo Network, because I like how they keep records of who did what at what time.
+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?
None of them. They are all wonderful people, but I don't find the jobs they did that interesting and wouldn't work in the Ministry because I was influenced by them.
+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?
Depends on who was Minister. It was definitely successful in keeping the Muggles from knowing about them, but I don't know about other things.
+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?
I would ask them why they think they're a good Minister of Magic.

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?
Yes and no, I could see myself working there if it meant that I was doing something good. To keep people safe and help people but at the same time no because I'm not interested in politics.

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?
I would say an Auror without any doubt.

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?

That is a very hard question because I look up to them all. Kingsley Shacklebolt, because he is brave and loyal but also Nymphadora Tonks because she's also brave, loyal and because she doesn't let anything to stop her.

Not after Fudge, it was a disaster but after Kingsley I think they got better reputation.

What's the hardest thing about your work?

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?

I'm not sure what type of job I would want after graduating from Hogwarts! If I did work at the ministry of magic, I would want to focus on interpersonal relations.

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?

Perhaps I would do something working in the Department for International Magical Cooperation.

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?

I would probably say Kingsley, he's always been a favorite of mine. I appreciate his tolerance and temperance.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?

I think that the reputation of any organization tends to shift as its leadership shifts. Of course we have seen that the MoM has done both good and bad in the past, and I think that largely depends on management and stewardship.

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?

I would probably talk about tolerance and diversity policies that could be enacted to make all witches and wizards feel safer in their world.

+ Do you see yourself working at the Ministry of Magic? Why or why not?

I do see myself as becoming a possible MoM employee. I like to help people out and I'm also very good at navigating around large places, so I wouldn't get lost.

+ If you were to become a Ministry of Magic Employee, which career do you see yourself in? Will you become an Auror, an Obliviator, a member of the Floo Network Authority, or maybe something else?

Most definitely a Magizoologist.

+ Who among the well-known Ministry of Magic Employees (e.g. Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Arthur Wealey, etc.) do you consider as an influence for your choice? Why do you say so?

Newt Scamander. I've always been more of an animal person but his book kind of opened the doors to my choice, I didn't know that there was an option for a person that studied magical creatures in the MoM until Fantastic Beasts introduced Magizoology.

+ Do you think the Ministry of Magic has a good reputation? Do you think it had been successfully doing its purpose? Why or why not?

That depends on what era the MoM was in.

+ If given a chance to talk to the Minister of Magic, what is the one question would you like to ask him or her?

I don't know what I would ask them. There are so many questions to ask, I couldn't possibly choose.
