Daniela sighed, flipping through the list of applicants yet again; occasionally she crossed a name off the list. Interns were useful to have around the hospital, she admitted that. It helped to have them fetch the medicines, deliver notes, and she personally enjoyed giving them tough questions to answer. But not all of them were easy to work with, especially with those that just recently graduated from the University; in fact some were down right aggravating. So, to circumvent the brash acting interns, Daniela suggested looking at some of the younger students interested in healing; the first-third year university students in particular. It would definitely be a new thing, but Daniela figured if they had a successful run, it could possibly substitute some of the university classes and give the students a more hands on experience. Sure the university had its own little hospital – but St. Mungo’s had far more variety of illnesses and other magical maladies. The students would get to interact with expert Healers and a diverse range of issues early on – they would be far more prepared for the hustle and bustle of the hospital.

So far though, Daniela has not found a lot that she would like to take on. There were a few that she liked, but not nearly enough for her to feel confident in. Of course these interns would be required to undergo far more training than if they had just graduated; but if a little extra training was all they needed, then Daniela felt like it was a risk worth taking. Plus she had a few more files and interviews to go through – most that she has seen so far were third and second years.

Looking at the application currently in front of her– one the university was nice enough to supply her with – Daniela skimmed over the basics. This applicant was a first year and one she had told an intern to contact. The girl had decent NEWT scores and had nothing that made her stand out. Except for the fact that she looked friendly. Not the friendly that someone gave off to get a job, but a genuine kindness that seemed hard to find in the overly competitive atmosphere of the university. In fact this applicant reminded her very much of her friend Ana.

At a knock on her office door, Daniela flipped the file closed. This would be taking a gamble but if these younger students had the right stuff, she was positive that it would all be worth it. They would receive more training and St. Mungo's would in return get better healers later on. “Come in!”

Cassie was nervous. There she was, a recent graduate of Hogwarts, getting ready to go into her first year of Healing at the University. And what was she doing? She was applying for an internship! She honestly hadn’t thought she’d score an interview at all. She hadn’t even started classes for healing yet! She’d only done it because her father said she should get her name there so she could be taken more seriously next summer.

She was sure she wouldn’t have much to do with actual patients yet. She was certain the job was more running around with paperwork or whatever, but still. She’d been called for an interview and she was extremely nervous. She definitely decided to blame her dad for this stress.

She had finally gotten up the courage to enter the hospital. She hadn’t been able to dress appropriately at home, what with her stepmother and younger brother unaware of the wizarding world, so she’d had to dress like she would have for a muggle interview and pack robes in her bag. Thank goodness for expanding charms. Her first stop was a restroom, where she’d put on the robes after casting an unwrinkling spell on them. Then, she’d gone to reception and asked the way to Healer Kirilenko’s office.

She took a couple of deep breaths and vaguely heard the receptionist speak to her. “Excuse me?” she asked, unsure of what had been said. “Thank you,” she answered, when she was told good luck. She must be nervous if the receptionist had felt the need to wish her luck. She had never been able to hide her feelings, but she’d really tried this time.

Finally, after what seemed to be a maze of corridors, she was standing in front of a door. Hoping she hadn’t been late, she knocked. Once told to enter, she quietly opened the door and slipped inside the room, closing the door behind her just as quietly. She took one more deep breath, hoping it wasn’t obvious. “Good morning. My name is Cassandra Eckloe and I’m here for my interview. I usually go by Cassie though.”

Daniela looked at the witch who stepped into her office. The blonde seemed to be, perhaps, just a bit nervous, if the deep breath was anything to go by. Daniela actually liked the fact that the girl felt nervous; she preferred a nervous applicant over a cocky one any day. Having confidence has never been a bad thing, Daniela just hated when confidence turned to arrogance. Of course, Daniela could be completely wrong about the girl being nervous; for all Daniela knew the witch could have been rushing to her office and now needed to catch a breath.

When the girl introduced herself, Daniela smiled. "Pleasure to meet you, Cassie. Feel free to sit down," The healer greeted, gesturing to the chair in front of her desk. Daniela glimpsed back at the application; there were a number of things that could be asked during the interview; the most common were medical knowledge, why they should be considered, and the like. But Daniela didn't really care for those questions, they were not very helpful for her when it came to picking out interns.

"How are you today, Cassie?" Daniela questioned. She wanted to make sure the other witch at least felt comfortable. This was the one question that Daniela had kept the same for every applicant that had been interviewed so far. She has tried to keep the questions varied and unique to the applicant. For this witch she had a good idea on where to get the desired answers from

"So, Cassie, if you don't mind me asking: what was your favorite class at Hogwarts?"

Cassie’s cheeks turned a light pink as Healer Kirilenko studied her. She hoped the slight blush wasn’t very noticeable. How childish could she get? Why did she still blush so easily? It was annoying. She could only hope the light make-up she’d put on was hiding it well.

Cassie returned the smile, feeling a little better that she managed to pass the first inspection. She apparently looked competent enough to continue with the interview. She took the offered seat carefully. It wouldn’t do if she’d accidentally missed the chair somehow. “Thank you,” she spoke softly, as she usually did. It was only when she was sad, upset, or overly excited that she spoke differently.

“I’m doing all right,” she answered the question. “I’m pretty nervous about being here, of course, but overall, I’m not doing too badly.” There was nothing wrong with a little honesty, she felt. At least the healer would know that Cassie didn’t lie. Well, as much as she could from the initial exchange anyway. “I do hope you’re doing well today?” It was only polite to return the greeting, she felt.

She lit up when asked a question she could actually answer. She shook her head. “I don’t mind that question at all. I think it’s your job to ask me questions right now,” she chuckled a little self-consciously. “Herbology was my favorite class. I’m muggle-raised, so it took me a little while to get used to having a wand. I had a fear of it for a while actually, so a lot of the spells didn’t come easily to me. But Herbology didn’t depend on my wand. I found it quite enjoyable to tend the plants and very interesting to learn how they could be used. Learning to use them in potions and the like was also nice, even with the strict professor we had.” At least she hadn’t caused any accidents in either class.

But was revealing that it took her a while to get used to a wand a bad thing? Well, it was too late now. She sometimes hated the tendency she had to ramble on when asked a simple question.

Daniela grinned, pleased that the ice seemed to be broken so to speak. Interviews were not fun if the applicant couldn't talk. Though Daniela always did find that a bit odd that people got choked up enough to not even be able to speak. "I'm glad you are doing well; though I think I would be disappointed if you weren't nervous - a bit of anxiety is a good thing after all." She told the witch. However repeating that in her head, Daniela realized it could come off as a bit rude. "I was terrified during my first interview and even a bit during the interview I had here at St. Mungo's." The first wizard who interviewed her had come off as this cold and clinical man who barely said a word outside of the questions he asked and Daniela had felt sure that she would never get the job. But she did get the job, even though to this day she has no clue how she had gotten that first job in the Ukraine. The witch who interviewed her for St. Mungo's however came off as this very friendly and chatty witch which helped ease her anxiety just a bit. Since Daniela had found that approach to be more effective she tried to keep most of her interviews like that.

"I am doing well," The healer replied. At least the girl was courtesy, that was better than some of the applicants she had. Courtesy was a big thing at St. Mungo's, patients needed to feel like they were respected since not only did it improve the relationship between the healers and the patients; but it also set down boundaries.

Daniela listened to Cassie discuss her love of herbology and the reason why, jotting down some notes along the way. The girl seemed to be articulate enough at explaining which was very good thing. Healers needed to be able to explain medications, illnesses, and treatments to the patients. If a person couldn't even explain a simple concept then they had no business being a Healer. "Well you managed to pass Hogwarts with acceptable grades to enter the program - does this mean that you don't mind putting effort in to things you find uncomfortable?"Daniela questioned. Interns normally were pushed beyond their comfort-zone. They had to be if they ever wanted to be a Healer since one never knew what they would be dealing with when they floo into work.

"Tell me, what are some of your perceived strengths - aside from herbology?" Daniela questioned. Part of her was curious at what the blonde would say, obviously the witch had a preference for herbology, but Daniela doubted that was the only thing the young witch had going for her.

Cassie was extremely surprised. Her interviewer, Healer Kirilenko, thought anxiety was a good thing? Maybe this interview would work out after all! Oh, she still didn’t think she’d get the job, with no experience at all, but it was still good practice. She smiled when the healer admitted that she had been nervous as well. It was nice to feel like she had something in common with the very together person before her.

Her smile widened when the healer answered her return greeting. Her father had said that she shouldn’t count on that happening but that she should still show her manners. He’d been right, and wrong. She couldn’t wait to tell him that some people did return answers to greetings.

Cassie chuckled a bit at the next question. “I put in effort to overcome any blocks I find that I have. I have those grades because I worked for them. I know I’m not the smartest person, and I don’t pick everything up easily, but I do work hard and study harder. My grades aren’t innate talent. They are the result of trying my best and then improving on that. I have never put just minimal effort in anything, Ma’am.” That might have been overkill, but how else could she have made the woman understand that very little came easily to Cassie? She put her whole effort into doing whatever she was trying to do.

“My perceived strengths,” she repeated thoughtfully. “Well, I’m not very good at talking about myself. It feels a lot like bragging to me, but I’ll do my best.” No matter how often she was told that saying she was good at something wasn’t actually bragging, she still felt awkward. “I work hard. When I put my mind to something, I put one hundred percent into completing it successfully. Magically, potions and charms are the subjects that I’ve improved in greatly. I genuinely want to help people and healing is the best way I know how to do that.”

She went quiet, not sure if there was more expected from her.

Daniela watched as the witch seemed to be relaxing . Interviews were always stressful for both the applicant and the interviewer. Time taken out of the day when you can be tending to patients or finishing up paperwork can rile up most healers. At St. Mungos they were almost always busy with one thing or they other, even if it is just paperwork, so something that takes away most of their day was usually a sore spot for most of her colleagues.

Daniela listened, amused by the bragging comment, as Cassie spoke about working hard. It wasn't grades that made a Healer, it was personality and effort. Anyone can become a Healer, but in order to be a decent one they had to have compassion and always put their best effort into healing. No patient wanted a cocky healer who refused to listen to them; let alone someone who only puts the bare minimum into their care. As she listened, Daniela jotted down some notes. Some people do have innate talents and they were usually --in Daniela's experience anyway-- those who could memorize a textbook and spit it back out verbatim. But memorizing a text book doesn't prove talent; it just shows good memory. Memory, however, is meaningless if the knowledge can't be applied in real life scenarios.

This witch seemed like she knew what she wanted and had no quarrels with putting in extra effort. The fact that she genuinely wants to help people is also a good thing; Healers often had long, grueling hours - sometimes they were even required to work a double-shift. Interns especially had to get use to the long hours and stressful shifts.

"I see; well I commend you for putting effort into your classes. Potions especially is an important asset for Healers. You don't necessarily have to brew them since we have Potioneers for that; but it's good to know the ingredients of the potions you prescribe - you never know what a patient might be allergic to."

"How much time did you put into your studies at Hogwarts? Which potions in particular did you struggle with?" Daniela questioned. She never really bothered to learn the curriculum taught at Hogwarts, it seemed pointless to her since she never attended it. Durmstrang always had a history of teaching 'dark' potions; at least that's what Daniela understood from the current atmosphere of the UK. Though if a potion can heal someone at the end of the day, Daniela didn't care what the potion was labeled as.

"If you can explain yourself in 10 words or less - excluding hard worker - what would you say?" Daniela question, her pen poised to write down a few more notes. So far the interview seemed to be going well, the young witch has a level head and seems to be able to articulate fairly well.

Cassie nodded. She hadn’t considered that part of it, but now that it was mentioned, it was obviously important. Maybe it was something she’d have been taught once she started University? “That is a good point,” she replied. “If one knows about allergies, then a different, yet similar, potion can be administered instead.”

“I would put at least two hours a day into studying. Practical magic would take me a bit longer to get, so I always tried to make sure that I had the theoretical part down pat. I also found that the better I understood the theory, the easier I would master the spells.” She thought about admitting that she’d been afraid of performing spells ever since she’d accidentally killed a beetle in second year Transfiguration, but felt that it wouldn’t be helpful information.

But the second question was one she could answer easily. “Strangely enough, I always had trouble brewing the poison potions, but never had any trouble brewing the antidotes. That was the first time I thought about becoming a healer. I just liked knowing that my antidotes could help people, if that makes sense. So then I read up on it more, and I liked everything I read. After talking to my father, he told me that my mother had studied to become a healer, but then I came along and she wanted to be just my mom for a while.” Here, she looked a bit sad. “She never got the chance to go back to it. So, I want to do it because I think I would love it, but I also want to do it for her as well.”

“That’s a difficult question,” she replied. “But I would say that I’m determined to succeed, I always do my best, I’m compassionate, I genuinely like people, I’m trust-worthy, and I’ve always tried to help people whenever needed.” That was a lot more than ten words, but she’d done the best she could. All she could do now was hope that her answers were satisfactory. She gave a bright smile, the one that inspired trust.

“Exactly!” Daniela said with a grin, pleased that the younger witch caught on. More often than not, when people spoke of potions, they always correlated it to brewing. While being able to brew can be an important skill for a Healer, it’s not necessarily a required skillset. But knowing the ingredients of a potion can, on rare occasions, save a patient’s life.

“Spells can be finicky, there are many extraneous variables that determine successful casting. If theory is what you prefer to study as a learning mechanism, then Spell Damage might be an excellent floor for you. However, since you enjoy herbology—plant poisoning and maladies could also appeal to you as well.” Daniela said, jotting down a few more notes. The theory behind the magic was rather important when considering spell damage since most of the time the castor’s intent is a large component of the casting. Knowing how the spell works and why it behaves in a specific manner or what determines how successful the spell is a large part in the diagnosis of the patient. If one knows the theory and how to combat the spell damage then the patient can be on the road to recovery as fast as possible.

“That is certainly a useful trait to have,” Daniela said, surprised to hear the girl had no problem brewing antidotes; mostly because usually the situation was reversed for a vast amount of people. She really shouldn’t be surprised since antidotes had similar instructions to potions, but largely applied theory instead of actual preparation. Reasons why antidotes should be stirred anticlockwise instead of clockwise or why would you put crushed beetles instead of chopped when dealing with Dragon Pox but not when dealing with spattergroits were usually important details most people never learned or never bothered to remember. “Which antidotes have you brewed so far?” Daniela questioned, her pen poised to write more.

Daniela smiled at the open admission. “I’m sure your mother would be very proud of you. Most first year university students don’t usually get a chance for an interview so early on after all.” Some of the healers at St. Mungo’s decided that having younger interns, whom they can have more time teaching, would ultimately be beneficial for the hospital in the long run; however, not all of the younger years actually have the maturity needed to be a successful and functional worker at the hospital. It was part of the reason they were rather selective on who they sent them interview requests to. “So, I’ve already listed a few of the floors that I think you would work well on—which floors do you see yourself working on if we extend the internship to you?”

Daniela withheld a chuckle at the statement. The question is usually an easy one for most people, but since the blonde doesn’t enjoy ‘bragging’ about herself she could see why it would be difficult. And although it was certainly more than ten words, the main points were spot on. “Compassion, success and trust are always important things to have in a healer.” There were other attributes as well of course, but the most important ones were compassion and trust. Patients always required confidentiality, if that confidentiality is broken then the patients will not trust anything the Healer says. Compassion is what makes a good healer; they need to be able to understand the patient on an emotional level—it helps to understand why patients are so against a specific treatment and how to ease them of their worries.

Cassie was excited when she’d apparently said something right. She wasn’t used to too much genuine praise from anyone other than her dad, but even he wasn’t always aware of what he was praising her for. She did appreciate that she tried though.

Spell damage? That could be interesting. Cassie hadn’t yet considered where she might like to specialize her studies and was happy to be getting a crash course on the different departments of the hospital. Plant poisoning and maladies sounded interesting as well, but it might be more than a little morbid. “I think that maybe Spell Damage would focus on those who get injured by spell mistakes?” That would make the theory of spells more than a little important if that was the case. “And the plant poison and maladies would deal with those who have made mistakes with plants?” She was going to think about it more, but she was distracted by another question.

She blushed at the compliment about her antidote brewing. “In all honesty, I think it might be more because I have no wish to hurt anyone than any innate talent. I would much prefer to help people than to hurt them, even by accident.” That was what she thought anyway. She’d never considered the fact that others might not feel the same. It helped her to see the good in everyone. “I have brewed every anti-dote on the Hogwarts curriculum, and read about many others. I have brewed the blood-replenishing potion, bruise removal paste, burn healing paste, cure for boils, deflating draught, hiccup solution, love potion antidote, pepperup potion, general sleeping draught, and the would-healing potion.” She really hoped that was enough, especially since she’d actually memorized the list before her NEWTs.

She smiled when Healer Kirilenko said that Cassie’s mum would be proud of her. “Thank you for saying so. I’ll admit that I was surprised to receive notification of an interview after my application was accepted. My father thought that applying for the internship would be good practice for me, and once I told him about the interview, he said it would be more good practice. Since I haven’t actually started University yet, I don’t think he expected anything to come of it other than my learning how to handle such situations.” She only hoped she was handling it well as it was. “I’m not sure which would be best for me, to be honest. I don’t have the experience of any of them. I know I’m interested in each floor you mentioned, but I’m really not sure which would be best.” She bit her lip. “I’m just afraid of giving the wrong answer and hurting my future chances.” She hoped that confession wouldn’t make the healer think badly of her.

“Well, I can promise that I’m compassionate and trust-worthy. I prefer to see the good in others rather than look for the bad. I guess that in some ways, I’m willfully naïve, but I do like my silver linings. In the long run, I think it will help me in becoming a good healer. If I have a difficult patient, for example, I won’t want to give up, no matter what. If I end up being ordered to return a criminal to health, I will do my best to do so, no matter what they’ve done. And I definitely know how to keep things to myself. I hold my own secrets closely, so I know the fear of them getting out. I know I won’t turn my back on that.”

“For the most part yes they get injured by mistakes; we do have the occasional lover’s quarrel that involves some hexes and spells crossing as well.” Daniela replied. For the most part the younger witch was correct in her assumption on accidental spell error. “Plant poisoning could be something they ingested or is allergic to. They can also be cases of intentional poisoning. Herbology is a huge aspect of that floor because it requires familiarity in the plant and its properties.”

Daniela nodded in understanding, most things in magic are based on one’s intention. The brunette jotted down the list that the blonde rattled off. They were a decent number; blood-replenishing and love potion antidotes in particular could be tricky. Having a first year university student knowing a fair bit about antidotes could be useful—it’s not often that they had a student who actually could differentiate between potions and antidotes well enough. “How familiar are you with antidotes? If I had a few containers on hand, would you be able to identify them just by appearance?” Not that she had any antidotes on hand, though she could always request some.

“A few of us feel that we can better prepare future healers if we have more time with them. I’ll admit sending you an invitation was a gamble, as with the rest of the first and second years we extended the interview too.” Daniela replied. She didn’t feel like sugarcoating it. The girl had a right to know that she was a part of a new trial for the hospital, but it was one that both parties could benefit from with enough effort put into it. Healers as of late seem to be sorely lacking the experience and the skill to properly treat patients. “You should give yourself more credit than to not expect something out of the interview—you certainly have a few things going for you. If it the decision was solely on me, I would more than likely extend the internship to you now.” Of course the decision was not totally up to her; the interview process has always been a long and drawn out debacle. Not every interviewee would be fantastic at everything, and so Daniela and her colleagues’ main focus was to find a well-rounded group of interns, one that can cover for any lacking area.

“Experience is good to have, but St. Mungo’s can give you plenty of that so long as you know the right people to ask,” Daniela replied. The fact that the girl admitted freely to having no clue which floor she was interested in was nice to hear; most people come into the interview, or even the hospital, assuming they know all they need to know about the floors and where they would like to be placed.

“You certainly have the commitment,” Daniela replied with a grin. She liked that about the girl. The blonde reminded her of Ana quite a bit. “Are there any questions you have for me?”

Cassie nodded in understanding as the interviewer gave a quick run-down on the spell-damage cases and the plat poisoning things. Everything the woman said made sense in Cassie’s mind. She hoped that was a good thing, and that she wasn’t overestimating herself.

“I don’t know if I could identify the antidotes just by appearance. Smell is very helpful to me as well with that task. But I could definitely try.” Not that she’d ever use anything that hadn’t been properly labeled anyway, but she knew it was still a good idea to double-check each one before using it.

Everything that the healer said made sense to Cassie. The healers with the interns could make sure to nip bad habits in the bud and could help the interns decide on a specialty for the future. Both were pros, but each was a pro for one side. However, she couldn’t stop the smile that crossed her face when the healer said that Cassie would get a position if the decision was totally up to her. She definitely took that as a major compliment. “Thank you,” she replied, trying not to sound as giddy as she felt.

“I would like any advantage towards achieving my dream of healing that I can get,” she admitted, not sounding sure that she was saying the right thing. She wasn’t sure that she understood who the right people to ask were, but at least she’d said something that sounded halfway intelligent.

“I don’t think I have any questions about the position exactly. My only question is how long do you think it should be before I hear one way or the other? I’m not trying to sound ungrateful, but my dad wants me to get a summer job, you see. He thinks it will help me start to learn how to budget what money I have and all so I can do it when I start University in the fall. I do realize that internships are unpaid monetarily, but they’re high-paying in experience, which he would understand as well. I think he just wants to make sure I won’t be wasting my summer, however I spend it.” Was that too much? Did she go overboard with her explanation? Probably, but it was too late to take it back now.

Daniela considered the statement, most potioneers she knew would use either sight or smell to help identify a potion or antidote. It would still be rather impressive if the younger witch could still identify an antidote based on smell and sight alone. And it definitely would be a skill that made the blonde stand out. "Well, I don't have any on hand right now, but I might use that as a bargaining tool to get you a position--so brush up on your antidotes okay?" Daniela said with a grin. She was known to exploit a variety of things to her benefit at the hospital--mostly convincing her superiors on why they should buy pricier potions when dealing with a specific disease; but she rather liked this witch and if exploiting this talent will guarantee the with a spot she would use it.

Daniela shrugged at the thanks; she rarely sugarcoated things, even to Ana. So she didn't really see the need for thanks although she appreciated the sentiment. "I don't give praise out needlessly; you'll learn that if you intern under me. You probably will at least once if you want to explore all the floors. But you're welcome nonetheless." She felt comfortable with the idea that the young witch would get a spot on as an intern: there was dedication, drive, compassion, and friendliness.

"Understandably so," Daniela replied with a nod. People always wanted to what would help them, it was human nature. Of course the witch before her stated it as sweetly as possible.

Daniela considered the question. "Well we have a couple more interviews after you, and then after that we will all convene and discuss who our top votes are. Then we decide on who fits best within the system and group itself. Ultimately if all things go well then about 2-5 weeks. No more then a month in a half tops." Daniela responded. She understood the father's concern for the daughter of course. She thought about her next statement. "This internship can extended well into your University years; we meant what we said about wanting more time with our interns and so we want to be careful on who we choose. This could result in you getting an immediate Healing position once you graduate--residency could be substituted with your internship should you prove capable."

Daniela gave the blonde a small grin, "With your personality and ability with antidotes, I think you have a good shot of getting the internship. Just tell your dad to give it some time." After a pause, Daniela asked once again, "Is there anything else?"

Cassie was surprised that Daniela seemed to think she could actually get this internship, and even go out of her way to help. She knew it was showing on her face, but then she smiled. She wouldn’t waste this chance. She only wished she had somewhere to practice brewing. She couldn’t at home, with her stepmother not knowing about magic and her little brother was a toddler now. It wasn’t exactly safe. But she could reread her notes and books. She knew she could do this.

“I will look forward to the possibility,” Cassie nodded. She understood those who didn’t praise every little thing. For her, it just made her more determined to earn that praise. And the only reason she wanted to work everywhere at least once was to find out where she fit best.

She nodded. She knew that her chances of getting the job weren’t the highest, but they weren’t the lowest either. She didn’t think she could work an actual job for only a month and a half though. She would have to find something to make her father happy. She could do some volunteer work until she heard one way or the other about the internship. That would make her father happy. “If the internship extends during the University years, does that mean I will be able to work around classes?” She was pretty sure that they wouldn’t schedule her to work during a class, but it was always best to double check.

Cassie grinned back. “I appreciate your time and giving me a few hints.” After all, what if there were two people for one internship? Her knowing the antidotes could put her at the top. She still wasn’t counting on the internship as a definite, but it was still possible. “My dad will be happy as long as I’m doing something productive with my time. I can do some volunteer work while waiting to hear about it.” She thought for a few moments when she was asked if there were any questions she had. “I don’t think so. Not right now at least. If I do get it, I’m sure I’ll annoy my supervisor with all kinds of questions as they occur to me,” she admitted, with only a small blush.

Daniela hummed in agreement. "I look forward to it as well." Although she wouldn't be the only one deciding on the interns this year she definitely would put a decent amount of backing behind this young witch. The girl was charismatic, friendly, and apparently versed pretty well in antidotes. Most candidates tend to focus on the bigger potions like the draught of living death, amortentia, or some other potion common to the masses. And, while those potions do take a certain amount of skill to brew, were usually the main potions brought up during the interviews. Most interns learn about the antidotes during their intern years. With that in mind, Daniela felt sure that she could get the girl a spot interning.

"If you get accepted into the internship we will always work around your schedule, though we will still demand a certain number of hours a week that you will have to intern with us--that means possibly working on the weekend." Daniela responded with a grin. She liked that the younger witch wished to clarify things right from the start. It helped eliminate confusion.

"No problem," Daniela replied with a grin. "I'm sure your dad will understand." When Cassie said she had no more questions, the brunette nodded. "Alright then, pease look for an owl from St. Mungos for any notifications on your application!" With that Daniela dismissed the younger witch.
