Stay tuned for the reopening of the Ministry of Magic RPG forums and a little celebratory RP extra from the department head team. Details coming soon

Text Cut: previous announcement

It's the holiday season (IC December) in the SnitchSeeker site-wide RPGs and that means that the Ministry of Magic is going on a brief hiatus and closing its doors (meaning members will no longer have access to the Ministry of Magic RPG forums) until placement comes to an end. This means that from now until June 15th you can have one adult character apply for a job at the Ministry of Magic simply by filling out this placement questionnaire. Prior to submitting your questionnaire, make sure you are familiar with the Ministry of Magic RPG rules and general FAQ. And don't worry, the Ministry will be back up and operational once we ring in the New Year IC in the site-wide RPGs!

The questionnaire itself can appear daunting, so here is a very basic guide and example for how to fill it out. A Job Listings thread is also available to you to use as a reference. Remember that unless otherwise specified, this questionnaire should be filled out entirely in-character (IC)! The more information and detail you provide, the better!

OWLs and NEWTs are only one example of the information you can include here. If supplying OWLs and NEWTs scores, remember that it is not necessary to have perfect scores in all subjects in order to get a job at the Ministry of Magic. As a matter of fact, it helps us better place you if you give us strengths AND weaknesses. Knowing what your character is best in and what he/she isn't so great in helps lead us to the department best suited for your character.

If providing OWL/NEWT scores, please don't provide something like "6 OWLs, 5 NEWTS." We need to know the subjects to help us figure out which department is best for you. Possible test scores are as follows:

Pass Grades
Outstanding (O)
Exceeds Expectations (E)
Acceptable (A)

Fail Grades
Poor (P)
Dreadful (D)
Troll (T)
5. Please list all former places of employment. Include dates of employment and job titles.
Internship at Galloway Rehabilitation Reserve May 2088 – December 2091
Internship at George Glass’ Greenhouses: February 2091 – December 2092
Freelance nature photographer 2092 - 2096

6. Please list any additional skills or qualifications you feel pertinent to your placement in the Ministry of Magic:
Degrees in Cryptozoology/Magizoology and Behavioral Sciences from WU Edinburgh

"Picture of the Year Award 2094" by National Geographic

7. Please list your strengths and weaknesses.
Strengths: I'm really good and making and achieving goals I set for myself. Once I put my mind to something, I work hard at it until the job gets done. I'm very knowledgeable about anything dealing with the outdoors, and I have a deep care for the wildlife around me. I get along well with others and am comfortable working with a partner or a team or by myself.

Weaknesses: I don't like to stay in one place for too long; therefore a desk job wouldn't be right for me. I get bored with paperwork and if that's all I was assigned to do, I'd lose my ambition really quickly. I like to protect wildlife; however, I tend to shy away from jumping headfirst into dangerous situations involving people.

8. If you are applying for a specific position in the Ministry, please list it here.
I am not.

9. Please list any crimes, wizarding or muggle, including the nature of the offense, the date committed, and sentence served.
petty theft (Scribbulus Writing Instruments); June 7, 2094; paid a fine of 52 galleons

10 - 15. Select the radio button beside the option best fitting to your character

16. OOC: If you are already placed in the Ministry of Magic RPG and are applying for a chance to re-sort, please provide a few details as to why you’d like to change departments.

17. OOC: Please indicate the name and department of the character you are giving up.

Ministry Placement is a lengthy process for the Ministry of Magic RPG team as each questionnaire is first reviewed by the Ministry of Magic RPG admin and then by each respective department head, so please be patient after submitting. We're a thorough lot when finding the right job for your character, so it may be UP TO A WEEK before you hear back from us.

Who can take the Ministry Placement Questionnaire?
  • Members! All members can apply. You need only to get your ten legitimate posts first. No RPG experience required.
  • If you are not currently a Ministry employee and would like to be, then now is the time!
  • If you ARE currently a Ministry employee but wish to change departments and characters, retake the questionnaire using your new character.
  • If you ARE currently a Ministry employee with only one character at the moment and wish to add a second, fill out this questionnaire. Please note that this will assumed to be the case for any member with only one character currently employed in the Ministry who fills out this questionnaire. If you do not want a second character, please specify so in the appropriate OOC field.
  • If you ARE currently a Ministry employee and wish to change characters within the same department, please contact your department head directly. There is no need to fill out this questionnaire.
  • Likewise, if you wish to have your current character considered for another job, a promotion, or another department, please contact your current department head directly and the Ministry of Magic RPG admin (sweetpinkpixie). Note that promotions will typically come IC from your department head with character longevity and reliability.
  • Second characters cannot be in the same department as your first character. You must have characters in two separate departments.
  • Only one character can be sorted at a time. If you are sorting your first character this time around, you’ll have to wait until the next sorting to submit a second character.

What happens after I take the Ministry Placement Questionnaire?
  • Your questionnaire will be carefully looked over by the Ministry of Magic RPG admin before being passed on to the appropriate department head.
  • Once the department head has your questionnaire, it is their turn to carefully look it over to assign your character an appropriate job within the department.
  • Once the department head has given your character a job, they will PM you welcoming you to their department and provide you with details on which position your character has earned.
  • After the Ministry of Magic admin has received confirmation of this PM being sent by the department head, your Ministry of Magic tags will appear (if you are new to the Ministry) or change (if you are changing departments). So keep an eye on your inboxes!
If you have questions you are free to ask them right here, in this thread. You can also contact any one of the department heads or Ministry of Magic RPG admin via PM and we'll be more than happy to help

Good luck & happy placement! We look forward to hearing from you.
