If you have young children, then it’s likely you’re already aware of Minecraft, the virtual world-building game, but if you’d thought that there was little real-world application for the skills gained from the game, you might be surprised to hear that Minecraft experts are now being sought for their virtual landscaping skills.
Happy Mag reports that UK garden shed review site WhatShed is expanding into virtual gardening, and they’re looking for a Minecraft pro.
In an advertisement on its website, WhatShed is ‘seeking to recruit a collective of virtual landscape gardeners’ to provide advice to people who are wanting to spruce up their Minecraft worlds and creations.
The role requires the successful applicant to give ‘creative solutions’ to clients and ensuring they stay within budget. Multiple options will be expected for each client they take on, encouraging whoever they’re working with to come back in future.
To qualify, creativity, confidence, and a firm understanding of Minecraft are needed, and it’d help if you understand gardening and landscaping in the real world, too.
With Minecraft being entirely virtual, and the worlds created can be visited from anywhere in the world, the role will be remote, and successful applicants will gain ‘valuable experience’ dealings with clientele, and of course they’ll get paid to play Minecraft, at a rate of £50 per hour.
WhatShed is Britain’s ‘leading review site for all garden sheds for sale.’ The description says the outlet is ‘dedicated to clearing up the confusion and providing a complete UK buyer’s guide for all the highest quality garden storage and storage sheds.’
There’s certainly plenty of potential candidates in the Minecraft community, such as the person who built their own fictitious US city, or the people behind recreating the city of Rohan from The Lord of the Rings.
