About This Quiz

J.K. Rowling created an entire world in her "Harry Potter" series. Not only are all of the characters well-developed, but she also created a society that included government, taboo, social norms and even careers that are specific to the world. This level of commitment to the writing has won her fame and fortune across media platforms. With the new series of "Fantastic Beasts" coming out, her reign of creation doesn't look as though it is going to slow down any time soon. 

The "Fantastic Beasts" series sheds light on a new layer of the wizarding world: careers. Not only does this pre-Voldemort world have even more complex characters, but it also shows us the adult side of things. Witches and wizards need to make money to live. They have specific jobs that muggles wouldn't be able to handle, and they have responsibilities to their magical careers and families. 

Now that we're seeing through the eyes of adult witches and wizards, we are more able to put ourselves in their shoes. For example, if you lived in the world of Harry Potter, you might need to consider what you would do to provide for your family. What would your magical career be?
