But... but who will look after your pixel miscarriage, oops, babeee while toddler pauline is working?? Also, toddler Pauline has a baby?  That's ew and yuck.  Oh yeah, there are next to no jobs for sl kids..

So, things you need if you want a job in sl:

the abilty to write (type) clearly and literately in any language but ideally mainly in English.

some sort of skills, possibly in customer service but also generally social skills.

Of course, you could just skip past the whole 'get a job' malarkey and go straight to awesome mesh building and texturing and scripting.  That only takes a few years and a few thousand real life dollars in software, then just magically acquire an outstanding reputation for high quality products; a fabulous advertising campaign should pretty much appear overnight and hey presto, you're all set!!

How hard can it be, eh?  Mind you don't get m*********e all over your keyboard now!!

Hello Pauline!

So honestly the closest thing you will get to a legitimate inworld job for minors would be Role-Playing, and even that is a stretch for children.

Just like in Real Life it's hard for children to get real jobs, the same is true for in-game. You might find a Role-Playing community that pays active players an "Allowance", however this is usually never more than 100-200L$ a week. If you do find a community that pays good, you need to be a GREAT roleplayer and very ACTIVE to maintain that kind of position. 

Other common jobs you MIGHT be able to find as a child are Hosting Events, Wait-Staff at a restaurant, being a In-World photographer for individuals or events, or even being a model for childrens clothing and accessory lines (will require a nice avitar, as well as a blog or flickr). Unfortunately as a child avatar you are putting yourself in a hole, unable to access some of the most lucrative jobs on the grid which mostly live in the Adult market, such as Dancers and Escorts. 

As mentioned earlier in the thread, the BEST way to make money is to apply your real-world skills in the game. Writing, Scripting, Sculpting, Building and Managing are all fantastic skills to transfer onto the Grid and see real profit. Unfortunately, if you are not already fluent in these things, it will be hardly worthwhile learning for the sole purpose of a in-game job. 

Anyway best luck, Pauline, hope you have fun! :matte-motes-big-grin:
