Overview Edit

Jobs are used to help residents make more money, get a better house, and afford more stuff. There are many jobs, each with an unlock condition, and possible special benefits. However, if the resident fails switching jobs, their stats will go down. When a job is mastered (master reaches 100%), the maximum amount of research point you can have is increased, based on the job (see the table below). This can be especially important, since many buildings cannot be researched with the default maximum of research points.

Most jobs require a specific building (or buildings) to be in range of an office. Some require a specific office (normal, medium, large). Small and Medium offices are 1x1 in size, and have a range of 5x5 for buildings that result in jobs. Large offices are 2x2, and have a 10x10 range. Some jobs may also require any buildings that's influenced by certain combo(s).

The Process of Changing and Finding a new Job Edit

Residents can only change job when they visit any type of offices. However, Residents will not have a chance to change and find a new job everytime they visit any offices.

There are 2 possible time when residents that visits an office can find and change to a new job.

The first possibility is when a resident has worked at least 7 times. A resident is considered working when they visit an office. So a resident must at least visit an office at least 7 times before they can change or find a new job. This number will reset whenever a resident successfully find and change to a new job.

The second possibility is when there's a "Japan GAMEDEX" Dev Events currently taking place. During this event, any residents will have a chance to find and change to a new job regardless on how many times they worked. Residents who changed job during this event will still have their work numbers reset to 0.

If a resident has fulfilled any of the two condition listed above, they may have a chance to find and change to a new job whenever they visit any offices. The chance of being able to find a new job depends on what the resident's current job and whether the Dev Events "Japan GAMEDEX" is currently taking place or not.

If "Japan GAMEDEX" is currently taking place, there's a 66% chance for the resident to change job.
If no "Japan GAMEDEX" is currently taking place, then it depends on what the resident's current job is.
If the resident current job is in the salarymen category (Freelancer, Employee, Supervisor, Manager, or Executive), the resident will have a 100% chance to find a new job. Otherwise the resident will have a 50% chance to find a new job.
