He showed up dressed in a nice black blazer, green button down, and black tie. He had his hair slicked back, and he was a picture of confidence, with enough humility to hopefully make a good impression. He knocked on the door.
He'd nod and have a seat. "So, I've looked through your record...very little job experience. You did decently on your N.E.W.Ts but that was a few years ago. So...why apply for the Ministry, and the Department of Transportation specifically?"

"I traveled extensively, for family business, right after graduating. But working for my family isn't what I want to do for the rest of my life. I've always thoroughly enjoyed Quidditch. I'm not good enough to play, and I don't think managing is what I want to do, either. So looking into the manufacture and development of new broomsticks seemed like an intriguing position that would combine my interest in Quidditch, with my skill set of Charms and Transfiguration."
He'd nod thoughtfully. "Alright...so how do you see yourself using those skills in developing and manufacturing broomstick design?"

"I know that much of the manufacture is privatized by big labels-- Cleansweep, Firebolt... If the Ministry wants to start manufacturing broomsticks... they'll need someone who can navigate the relationships with those companies."
He'd nod. "Makes sense. So do you see the Ministry getting into actual broomstick development and manufacture in the future and trying to compete with the private industry?"

"Potentially. You could issue Ministry-standard brooms to Aurors, or any other department that requires travel. With protective enchantments and the like that could come standard-issue to Ministry employees."
"You'd have to work on and approve floo network connections or fix broken ones, create portkeys and be responsible for the safe arrival of travelers and even take a rotation in the Apparition testing center. I assume you can appirate and create portkeys?"

He nodded. "Definitely. I passed my test right after I turned seventeen, and I was always pretty good at Transfiguration."
He'd nod his tone serious. "Well make sure you do some practicing on portkeys since getting it just right means people don't get splinched." He'd pause then nod. "Well anyway welcome to the Ministry. We're working on getting a Department Head right now that you'll report to. Until then feel free to start working on broomstick prototypes. Did you have any questions for me?"

He grinned broadly. "Yes sir," he said before shaking his head. "No, sir. Thanks for meeting with me."
