Getting a job


Setting a profession
For the professions of Lawyer, Priest and Teacher you can set the profession yourself, as soon as you have obtained a degree. To do so, click on your username in the right-hand corner of the screen, scroll down to the box containing your details, and click the degree you want to adopt the profession of. After you have adopted the profession, it will appear behind your username in much the same way as your status. Of course, you do need clients and/or an employer, or you will just have a fancy icon. Most employers can be found in the club overview (for further details on employers, see below).

Obtaining a degree
To get a degree, you can apply for an exam at the Federal University. Once you've passed the exam, you will be awarded the degree for duration of 3 rounds, before which you will have to have it extended.

Applying for a job
When you have finished your officer course and have received your officer degree, you can apply for a job as officer in your local city hall (or police station). Make sure to do this in the first days of the round, so you have a bigger chance of getting hired. The mayor will usually create a topic for it.

To become a journalist, you should just send in articles for newspapers like The Miniconomist and vNews. You don't need the editor degree to do this. Some players receive the profession of editor; with this, you are allowed to post on the Newsfeed. Being active and writing high quality articles might eventually be rewarded with this editor status.

Also other authorities could also have jobs available, such as Public Prosecutor, Judge or National Teacher. So, keep a close watch on the clubs!

Politics

For the different political professions like Advisor (Digitalië and Virtua), Consul (Virtua), Governor (Cyberië), Vicepresident (Cyberië and Virtua), President, and Mayor, there is no direct application. To become one of these you must put yourself on an election list or be chosen by the President, Mayor or King. The King (Digitalië) is also a position you cannot obtain in the way described above, instead the person who is responsible for the last King's bankruptcy may obtain the job when he passes a set of criteria.

Elections
The elections are generally held in the last three days of a round. In the third week of the round, a few days before the elections, the Federals open up to possibility to put your name in for the coming elections. You can find the page, called Politics, to do so in the Information menu. In all cities, there are local elections for choosing a Mayor.

Cyberië and Virtua also hold national elections. In Cyberië you have a party system which is important to decide who will becomes Vicepresident. The President is the player with most votes in the national elections, the Vicepresident has to be member of the largest party. The Governors are those with the most votes per city in the national elections. The winner of the Virtuan national election will become President of Virtua. The runner-up in this election will become the Vice-President. The President gets to choose all the other members of the Virtuan Council, however the Vice-President holds the power to cancel any appointment within the first 36 hours.
The chosen Ministers and Consuls of Cyberië and Virtua are generally responsible for a part of the day-to-day management of their countries like state finances, justice and education.

Becoming King

  • The King must live in Digitalië
  • The King must have ended last round within Digitalië
  • The King must have the Gangster status or higher

The successful shooter must then claim the throne within 36 hours, else the City Government of Digitalië has the right to appoint someone else King.
