"I started out on the Floo Network Regulations Office, sir, before being promoted multiple times. I also did a lot of research in behalf of the department, mostly concerned with broomstick speeds, and portkeys. In dealing with transportation, a lot of unfortunate happenings should be expected - like accidents, and such, and so I learned to be alert and quick on my feet. I was able to handle pressure better and be more patient during my time at the department, and I also learned to be more meticulous and attentive as I handled my research. Those qualities would be good for a potential department head, but I also don't think that it stops there. I still have a lot to learn, and I am hoping that I continue to do so regardless of whether I get the job or not."
