Since when does the perfect job not exist?
Animal Crossing is back for 2020 and with days during lockdown seemingly endless, it really couldn't have come at a better time.
00s kids across the world rejoiced when Nintendo announced that it would be releasing an updated version of the smash-hit video game series first released back in 2001 and after launching in mid-March, to say it has really taken over would very much be an understatement.
Now, for those already spending a potentially unhealthy amount of time perfecting their island, there's a job opportunity that's honestly too good to pass up on.
Following the incredible success of Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons, online homewear brand, Olivia’s, is seeking to recruit a collective of virtual interior design consultants who will provide professional advice for players looking to improve the interiors of their in-game homes.
The best bit? If you're application is successful, then you could get paid upwards of £40 an hour when hired and no, we don't mean bells either, we're talking actual Great British Pounds here.
It almost sounds a bit too good to be true, but we promise you it very much isn't.
Your daily tasks will include evaluating a client’s current set up and providing creative feedback, helping clients with suggested setups that stay within their budget and explaining the reasoning behind each of these choices, and then also creating multiple designs for each client (should they desire a redesign in the future).
So, what exactly is the criteria for this role then?
Successful applicants must have a working knowledge of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, strong communication skills, confidence in remote working and maybe some previous experience in interior design too. Benefits include flexibility, the opportunity to gain valuable experience by talking to clients and experimenting with different styles, and then the most obvious one of course being that you're literally just getting paid to play Animal Crossing.
Reckon you fit the bill?
