Harry Potter lacks the magical skills to be a receptionist.
Daniel Radcliffe, better known as the once-and-future Harry Potter, was tasked with working the front desk at Nylon magazine’s office for an hour. He fulfilled the job description (mostly) answering the phone, delivering packages, and handing out the bathroom keys to oblivious staffers who didn’t seem to notice the young wizard in their midst. He did lose a few points for Gryffindor, though, when he screwed up Joe Jonas’s appointment. (He didn’t even try, “accio appointment!”?) It seems clear that they don’t teach secretarial skills at Hogwarts.
At the end of the shift, Radcliffe described the experience as “the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” Welcome to life as a Muggle.
Hopefully he has some other talents to fall back on.
