Career Fair Event // May 1977
O.W.Ls, N.E.W.Ts, and graduation are all right around the corner for the older students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Fifth years get to start really thinking about where they want to start focusing their educational sights, sixth years have their final chances to make any changes to better fit their interests, and seventh years should know whereabouts they’re headed once they leave the halls of Hogwarts with seven years of schooling under their belts… but even for them there’s still the chance to find a new direction if they so wish. What better way to get all these students thinking than to hold a career fair?
For one day the Great Hall will be filled with smaller tables, manned by witches and wizards from all different walks of life and career choices. Informational pamphlets and practiced pitches abound, as well as plenty of potential internships and apprenticeships if a student seems particularly bright and inspired. It might also just be a good opportunity for students to skip out on their classes for a day and get up to some school-sanctioned mischief, like most educational events, but that’s up to them!
All students in year five and above are invited to attend this event; however, special attention will be granted to seventh years preparing to enter the workforce and sixth years on the verge of choosing their final set of NEWT preparatory courses.
WHERE AND WHEN
The Hogwarts Great Hall will be filled for an entire day with representatives from every wizarding career path imaginable, both conventional and unconventional.
Big names like Alastor Moody of the Auror department will be onsite scouting for the top crop of students with both the grades and the stamina to undertake the most difficult and dangerous career path imaginable–– many will apply and only a handful will be chosen for the three year post-graduate training program. Friendly faces like Eoin Vanity will be present from the Department of Magical Games and Sports; impressive resumes will come to life in the form of the Head of the Dolohov Apothecary empire, Patrik Dolohov.
Hitwizards, politicians, janitors, waitresses, healers, musicians, shopkeepers and researchers–– any job you’ve seen a pamphlet about has sent a representative today. Old, pureblood wizarding names will combine with the splash being made by some of the newest names forging ahead and creating the newest pages of wizarding history books. Only your grades (and networking skills, and bank accounts, and connections and…well, you get it) can stand in your way now– who will you choose to shake hands with today?
How To Participate
- All of your characters are in years five and up, which means they’re invited to attend!
- Use the tag WhoIsLeftCareer for starters taking place at the event!
- Starters can be posted between now and 11:59pm on Thursday, June 1st.
- NOTE: if your student has a parent, relative or other NPC under the umbrella of your control that you would like to appear as a career representative (aka if you wanna get some of your adult or siblings on the scene for interactions) please just shoot a message to the main so we can give you the heads up! We’re not going to be picky; we just want to get a sense of who’s in the castle.
