The Employment Office is a place where players can go to do jobs with their Webkinz and earn KinzCash. A player can only do one job every eight hours, though Deluxe members can choose one extra job per day. The Employment Office is run by Tabby Von Meow, the Job Advisor.
From the Webkinz Guide:
- Your Webkinz can only work once every eight hours - this is to make sure your Webkinz has to rest between jobs. There are a variety of jobs, and the amount of KinzCash you earn increases with experience. The jobs range from easy to hard and your resume will track how well you are doing. Tabby Von Meow, our job advisor, can give you more information.
From the Kinzville Times:
- Tabby Von Meow is full of good news! She asked us to tell you about some changes to a few of the jobs. Now the Piano Player, Fence Painter, and Sandwich Maker jobs are easier than ever! Just drop by the Employment Center and give them a try; we know you'll do a great job!
Similar to a pet's Report Card for the Kinzville Academy, players can view their Resume by clicking on it in the Employment Office. The Resume displays a player's username, the KinzCash they earned on their last job, and all of the KinzCash they've earned by doing jobs. Each job that a player has completed is listed on the Resume, along with the player's level in that job, how many times they have attempted it, and how many times they have succeeded. The Resume is shared between every pet on a player's account, so the job's level is always the same no matter what pet completes it.
Doing a Job
There are three job difficulties - easy jobs have no requirements for players to be able to do them, though they award the least amount of KinzCash. These jobs have yellow notes on the Job Board. Medium jobs have blue notes, and hard jobs have green notes. Available jobs rotate out once an hour, and there are always five jobs on the board. Occasionally, a job will be spotlighted in Today's Activities. Players can complete this job even if they have already completed a job in the past eight hours. This job will appear in the center of the Job Board on a pink note that says "Extra Job".
After completing a job successfully three times, the player will level up. With each new level, the player gains more KinzCash every time they complete that job. The maximum level a player can have in a job is three. More difficult jobs also award more KinzCash - level three hard jobs can award up to 350 KinzCash!
