Geekspeak: COVID 19 GLOBAL CRISIS. WHAT CHANGES WILL WE SEE IN OUR FUTURE? Join the discussion Saturday April 11th at 12pm SLT



Soon we will have overcome the current crisis.  But we will be left with a world where millions of people are jobless and where we are all scared of the future.  So how do we rebuild?  What permanent changes will we see?

More virtual worlds?  The invention of the holodeck?  A society where education and business conferences all take place online?  Where more people work from home all the time and there are no offices?  What will happen to all the empty office buildings?
Maybe there will be no more restaurants?  An army of delivery drones?  Maybe we will see a new interest in science?  Maybe we will refuse to pollute the air again now that it is clean.  Maybe we will see robot cleaners using UV light to kill viruses.
Let’s think of the positives here and try to predict the world as it will be in 2 years. Happy Easter!  Maybe next year Easter will be online.
IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at the GeekSpeak auditorium at 1pm SLT, if you have ideas for new subjects.

Tips for a career with an upward linear graph - Debby Sharma Reporting


Are you new to SL? Have you got your avatar ready? If not, follow the link below this article, it would help you get your personalised avatar for free, be it mesh or non-mesh. The link would also help gather a few lindens through various means like contests, sploders, and money chairs etc. which are enough to cover your initial expenses for clothing etc. But soon you would realize the need for a home, mesh outfits, furniture, dreams and more which would need a regular flow of income to sustain them.

Most businesses encourage the residents to explore the first 30 days of joining Second Life. There are a few businesses who would hire in your first month, but those are either very rare to find or if you could convince which is equally rare. So where to start?

Photograph Credits: Google Search


Step 1: Applying for a job
Like in real life, there are various places where one can search for jobs. Here are the few places that I am sure to look at when I start searching. A few conventional methods and few are non-conventional ones. They are:
·         Job Agency
·         Inworld Employment community forum
·         Social Media
·         Classifieds

Job Agency
Job Agencies are the best place to look for job. Jobs for hosts, Djs, managers and sometimes escorts are very easily found. Sometimes other jobs like a sales manager, store models etc. are also available. One can click on the advertisement board to receive an application and a landmark. Fill in the application to the detail and send to the residents mentioned.  If your dream job is not listed during a specific time period at the agency, you may also join their group and look out for them in future. Agencies and their landmarks have been listed below:

In-world Employment community forum
It is the best place to look for a job. Not only it is best and a free method used for applicants seeking a job but also the employers, managers and business owners looking for efficient staff. If you are looking for employment in-world, here is the link: https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Inworld-Employment/bd-p/InworldEmployment. Under the Commerce section in the community forum, there is another head called the “wanted” forum. Apart from employment, if you think you possess some other skills, like web designing, graphic designers etc., something that you are good in real life as well, you may post your resume and employee seekers or business associates would contact you. Your link here: https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Wanted/bd-p/Wanted

Social Media
With the advent of Social Media in our real lives, Second Life is too not behind in having groups and forums for people seeking job. It is another good source of free advertising for wanted staff. Even when we are busy in our real lives, social media is something we carry with us all the time, thanks to the technology development and mobile phones. This means, we can search for jobs and look out for and apply mostly via google forms and sometimes via notecards. Here are a few links that might help.
Facebook links:
Metabiz search list

Classifieds
Whenever you open the search results for Second Life, you would find a list of classifieds on the right side column which shows results based on your Second life searches. These will teleport you directly to the clubs, businesses that are seeking staff where you can apply.

Professional Tips:
·         Save a notecard in your inventory to record your resume. As you progress, you will shift from many jobs. Hence, make a list of the Business name, your job position, and your employer’s name, date of joining and date of leaving, reason for leaving the job.
·         You may save a folder in your inventory consisting of all the applications you have applied for from the start. Although, it is not mandatory, however, it is recommended. For example I had applied and worked for Malibu Nights Club. It was the first club. After a year, there was an opening again for the same club. When I was hired, I mentioned that to the owners, they were so pleased that they offered me to a job to its sister concern on the first day itself.
·         Maintain good relations with your employers. This helps in two ways, first, if a new job requires a reference, your employer is the best choice, and second, the new employer may or may not verify about you from your previous employers. Just because you have left your last employer’s job that does not mean you can’t be good friends with them. For example, I had worked for Kylie Brimmer for 2 years through her 2 clubs. After, I moved on from the clubbing industry, she is still a good friend who helps when I am in need and I help her whenever she needs.
·         Aim for a professional career with stability instead of a being a rolling stone. It is important that while you have a job, you show stability with a job. Like real life, every job requires training and no employer would want their investment not earning any returns. Employers do not like people who would just receive training and take off after a short period of time. The point of stability is rated high in the eyes of your new and old employer.

General Tips:
·         If you are applying for the first time or not, make sure that while filling the application form, you write why you are the one who is best fitted for the job. Talk about your skills and how good are you at commitments and team work. These words matter a great deal than usually apprehended.
·         Be Truthful.
·         Real life happens. Tell your employer about your absence, if possible prior or else later. Don’t be afraid to let them know the reason. We all understand as we have been there too.
·         Remember that there are real people behind the avatars. Yes, it is a game. But if you are looking for a job try to be involved and give your commitment.
·         Be friendly, polite and never get involved in drama. Sometimes, it is very difficult to stay out of it. Still, if you have a problem at your job with any staff or customer, never be rude to them instead take the matter to your employer. Make a notecard and copy-paste the chat that bothered you and ask your employer for guidance. Remember, only your employer has the right over you with respect to your job. The same is true for others.
·         Above all, find something that you love to do. A passionate work can always motivate you leading to betterment of all. Most of all, if you love something, you will find it fun to do. After all everyone has come for a enjoyment in this life. So have fun.

SPOTLIGHT ON VACANCY- Jobs & Recruitment Service in Second Life that Goes Above and Beyond just Displaying Jobs- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

Vacancy Jobs & Recruitment Service

Let’s get brutally honest shall we? If you want to maintain a certain lifestyle in Second Life you have two options. You can become a premium member so you can transfer and convert funds to Lindens with the ability to purchase a sim or own a parcel on the grid.  But without Lindens it can be difficult to obtain all the things you need for a fulfilling Second Life. The other option is finding a virtual job because begging for lindens shamelessly at a club or welcome center will get you nowhere fast.
If you are reduced to holding a cup outside a club while looking like a noob, then maybe Second Life isn’t the place for you. There are plenty of jobs available on the grid. You just have to know where to look. Some experience is always a plus in the type of job you want  but it is not necessary if you  can be committed to whatever it is you apply for.

Vacancy is a new job & Recruitment Service that provides employers of Second Life with affordable AD Board rentals as well as additional services to help job seekers become great candidates. Owned and operated by JT Raynier and Jordan Shey, their objective is to treat Vacancy clients like partners and provide a high level of customer service. Each client is viewed as an individual. They believe Vacancy’s success is based on the people they provide a service to.
For 50L per week a business owner can post a help wanted Ad that provides useful information to job seekers. Job Seekers can easily browse the available job Ad quickly and easily. Resumes are an important part of matching employers with the perfect candidates so Vacancy helps build that bridge between the two.
The SL Enquirer went to Vacancy undercover to see what type of customer service was available and was pleasantly surprised that there was an actually person there to answer our questions. Good customer service is rare and to see it at Vacancy leads us to believe in their promise to treat each client with care and respect.

JT Raynier

Interview with JT Raynier
SLE: What inspired you to created Vacancy?  Can you tell our readers more about your objective and services?
JT: The Jobs market in Second Life is getting more and more competitive day by day. With Vacancy, we intend to bring something slightly different to the table. We’re in the process of fitting application drop boxes to as soon as as an applicant has filled out their application for a particular they can drop it back into the board and it goes direct to the advertiser. This cut’s down a lot on having to find the names of people to send the application too and streamlines the application process for both applicants and employers.

Jordan Shay

SLE: There are other job search agencies in Second Life. What separates your employment services from the others?
JT: What separates us is our level of customer service. We aim to contact new advertisers within 6hrs of taking out an advertisement with us to to set up their advertising privileges in our group. Unlike some other services we also undertake advertising with other businesses in SL to raise our profile in our target client and applicant markets.
SLE: Do you screen employers for certain criteria before they can post available jobs at Vacancy?
JT: At the moment no we believe it’s important for all businesses in SL that are looking for applicants to fill roles within their business or businesses to have the option to advertise with us.
SLE: What type of skills do you recommend for job seekers to have before they apply for a job? Do you offer training programs or help with creating a resume?
JT: The jobs that are most advertised in SL are roles in the entertainment sector, ie - Dj Jobs and Hosting jobs. We will in the very near future be offering training and support for this. But we’ll go more into that at another time as we are firming up plans at the moment to get this all done and to offer a good service to the customers who choose to undertake training with us.
Ad boards

SLE:  How do employers get set up at Vacancy? Can they choose any AD Board in the room or are there specific areas for the type of job they are offering?
JT: The way we’re setup at the moment employers can put their ads anywhere. We took this choice from construction mainly to keep cost down for employers. If they was for example to have three jobs for example, DJ, Host, Dancer that would be 150L$ a week for three standard boards as opposed to 50L$ for one standard board. But employers can have more than one board if they wish.
SLE: What type of information is shared in your group that will help employers and job seekers?
JT: We have a group setup for both employers and job seekers which employers can post their jobs in as group messages group messages. We’re always looking to innovate in the jobs sector of SL and have some interesting developments planned for the future but on these you’ll have to wait and see ;-)
SLE: is there anything else you would like to share about Vacancy?
JT: Yeah there is, We hope to see your readers employers and applicants really soo and hopefully we can help employers find the right people to fill the roles employers have and applicants the dream SL job they are looking for!

It’s Money Honey! A Guide to Finding a Job and Making Lindens in Second Life- Debby Sharma Reporting...


Unlike real world where there is always necessity to fulfill our basic needs, comforts and luxuries, in virtual worlds we do have these needs as well. You may often hear virtual world being an escape for us, a window to live our imaginative life to the fullest. So, when there is no requirement of any necessity to be fulfilled, we still love to shop.
Who does not like to shop? Our bags are full of items we used once in our entire virtual life time or never used at all. Most of us know how to bag the pennies and feel the struggle.
Here are a few tips for the starters and a list for the existing Second Life residents:
The following are the ways to earn lindens if you are just starting.


·         Trivia Balls
There are clubs in Second Life that have trivia balls. A random general knowledge question is asked in local. If you give correctly answer you get a few lindens.
 For a starter this is one of the best ways to earn some. One such venue is located in Wasteland Reloaded http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sommerinsel/225/34/23 , answer trivia questions to win L$2.

You can also use your event search and type in the keyword “trivia” to find other  places to earn lindens with your knowledge.


·         Contest Boards
One of the main activities which helped me purchase my first home in second life are contests. Clubs across the grid host contests to dress according to a theme. To participate in most contests, it it required to join their group as a VIP and click the “Join Contest” on the Contest Board. After about two hour or at the end of the shift, voting starts. Some clubs either select one winner or three or as many winners as they choose. Participants may ask for votes during the voting time if the rules permit. They vary between venues hosting contests.  Contest participants can win a substantial of amount of lindens this way.
 Most clubs put in L$250 which is split among winners. However, clubs may give out as high as L$2000 up for grabs. For example: Club Vanity http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Carnival%20Land/93/198/1804 Energy Club http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Energy/103/112/21



·         Traffic Huds
There are many huds available on the SL marketplace. Add the hud to your outfit. Each hud has  info on how to operate.  Always read the info before you start. Once you wear the hud, you will be given a place. Teleport to the place and move around for 2 or 3 minutes to get paid. Only condition is you can’t stand at a place for  a long time or be away from keyboard. These were introduced to increase traffic in a region. It was once upon a time a good suggestion for business in SL. However, it has lost its magic for the business in the later years. For a person wearing a traffic hud, one can earn as much as L$20 per hour. A few links to get huds on market place are;

·         Sploder
Once you have a few lindens in hand, you can play the Sploder at clubs. Pay the Sploder and you might get lucky and win some extra lindens. At some sploders, you may have a loss too. So, I prefer the no lose sploders. If you pay L$20, there is guarantee that you would get it back. The hope is you might get much more and never lose. One such club you may want to visit is The drunken lizard beach http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Portimao/212/158/22.

      Park your avatar
There are some places where you may park your avatar for a while to get paid. Sometimes you have the option to go away from keyboard for long time and just camp. It is one of the ways to increase traffic and make some easy lindens.

Neko Launge http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Volokov/23/98/286 pays L$1per hour. While I was visiting I saw old avatars about 4 years old doing the same.

The following are  ways to earn lindens if you are an existing player in Second Life. You may also adapt the above ways too. These require either a few Linden Dollars or experience to start off.



·         Affiliate Business
Under the business category look for affiliate programs in the marketplace. Here is the link https://marketplace.secondlife.com. All you need is to rent a shop space. There are businesses that give you the franchise to sell their product for a percentage of commission.
·         Photography
It is one of the most cherished careers in Second Life. If you can take a good shot and you have an unusual view to things, you may want to take photography as your career choice. A good graphics card helps. There are tutorials available on you tube and various blogs. One of the upcoming photographers, Val Valsnia started with L$50 per picture and now makes L$500 each. There are many great photographers. It is a tough market but you have a creative look, you are spot on with lot of customers.


·         Custom build
There is always a need for builders. For starters try building something and put it on marketplace. If your product has a wild appeal, you may soon open a store in world. To learn building, you may join the most active group in Second Life, Builders Brewery. Here is the link for more information on the class schedule. http://buildersbrewery.com

·         Animation
With building comes the basic animations. Although there are many poses in the marketplace, there is always a need for a few realistic ones. There are very few pose makers inworld. This one has a great demand among customers. They are wanted by builders, designers, bloggers, models, fashion magazines and end users. You can learn to make animations on Youtube. Among other free software, I prefer one called Qavimator http://www.qavimator.org/  to make animations and save them in .bvh file and later upload to SL. Note that it takes L$10 to upload per file.

·         Textures
If you are good with digital art, this one is for you. However, if you are a starter, there are many tutorials available on the web. Artists would normally suggest PS, i.e., Photoshop and it the best. But if it is too much to start with, try playing around in http://www.picmonkey.com . Pixlr is almost similar to PS, but it does not support PSD files. You can work around it with PNG files. Here is the link to the editor http://apps.pixlr.com/editor/ . The cost of uploading a texture is L$10 each. Here is the catch, either you may sell seamless textures on the marketplace or if you are artist in real life, you may sell your art inworld. Before selling textures, I suggest you to read the TOS and be aware of the infringement rights.

·         Scripting
Animations or builds do not function like real life without the scripts. All hands down to the scripting experts. If you know java or any programming language, you may be able to do a little bit of scripting. Scripting is taught in world as well. Builders Brewery has scripting classes. This is another career which has a great demand in SL. You may sell scripts on marketplace. If you look into second life community there are special on hand jobs available for scripters.

·         Modelling
By modelling, I mean fashion models. Clothing, accessory designers and fashion magazines are on the look-out for models. There are modelling schools in world. But, they are not cheap. Total fees may vary from L$500 to L$10,000. There are free modelling schools (FMU) available as well. To be among the top celebrity models, it is best suggested to get into the best schools to get maximum exposure.


·         Estate Sales agent
Although this job can be taken by a newbie too, but the estate owners normally do not hire newbies. The estate owners looks for some experience and stability to hire these sales agents. After one is hired, they get  rigorous training for about a week. You can earn a percentage of commission selling virtual land in SL. This percentage when converted to pennies is so much, that you might be the owner of a small land yourself living lavishly. But the only requirement is that you have to be really good at marketing. You may hear the job opening either from a friend or community in Second Life but seldom at any agency.



·         Re-Sale
Do you love breedables? I do. You must have a home in second life to breed and take care of them. Breedables range from fantasy animals like meeros to pets like dogs, cats to farm animals like horses and plants. Breed your pets and sell the younger ones in a rented space.  Another kind of resale is to sell food and weapons etc. Food? Yes, food. If you roleplay as a Gorean, an avatar has to eat food to do the various activites in Gor. There is a world of Gor who have traders ad merchants selling food, bricks of copper, gold and silver and weapons which are based on G&S Hud.



·         Advertising/Public Relations
To be an advertiser, you must have an active group in world and a space to put up the ads of your clients. Show your marketing skills, bring in clients and get them customers. You can be an Ad agent for The SL Enquirer and earn a good commission Just click here to apply for a job with the SL Enquirer

 You can also create your own agency where others come to buy and sell products and services.


Other professions may include a machinima artist, role players like doctors, gynaecologists, nurses, bloggers, writers, policemen etc. One can search for more in http://search.secondlife.com.





·         Jobs Agencies
Ever since March 2012, I have always been looking for a job. The best place to look for job is at job agencies. Click on the board to receive a note card for application. Even  if you have no virtual work experience, you can still fill out an application.
 There are jobs for managers, hosts, DJs and dancers throughout the year. Other jobs also are available from time to time like sales agent, writers for various magazines and news sources as well as scripting and building for land owners.


If you need training with any club jobs you can visit Club Staff University http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Portimao/212/158/22 . It is a learning school or clubs jobs as well as a training facility for new employees.
A few landmarks you may want to visit while job hunting are: Job Squad http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sommerinsel/225/34/23 Jobs 4 u Job Center Agency work and employment http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/No%20Devil/201/138/22 Pisces Jobs http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/No%20Devil/201/138/22
