The interview went well, I thought. The position I've applied for has a bit of everything in it, all of which has relevant experience I can point to. I think my only drawback is the clear need for high organization, and I'm not the best organized person in a crowd. I can be organized in a pinch, but it's not my natural state of affairs.
I think I was able to come back a bit by pointing out that I'm quick witted in a crisis and I'm patient. Patience, my interviewer said, was definitely a good strength to bring to this position.
We shall see. I'm also waiting to hear back from the interview I had last week...
Fudge turned back to Dumbledore. "You will now be escorted back to the Ministry where you will be formally charged, and sent to Azkaban to await trial."
"Ah," said Dumbledore gently. "Yes. Yes, I thought we might hit that little snag."
"Snag?" said Fudge, his voice still vibrating with joy. "I see no snag."
"Well," said Dumbledore apologetically. "I'm afraid I do. It's just that you seem to be labouring under the delusion that I am going to... what is the phrase... come quietly?"
That's gold. Rowling still uses too many adverbs, and could still use an editor, but early indications are that this book is a winner, topping her previous entries for ambition and character development. I'm looking forward to actually reading this book instead of just hearing the highlights from Erin.
