A job offer in Second Life


The Second Life Great Expedition: A masquerade ball

I got a note card today for a job in Second Life, so I will just pass it on in full:

Solace Beach Estates Rental Agent

The job involves sitting in the rental office during a set shift (1-4 hours depending on your preference) greeting and assisting any customers that arrive. You will need to be able to understand and explain the basics of land renting, and assist customers with:

* How to browse and search the Solace Beach property listings

* Understanding zoning, themes, and covenants

* Helping customers find the land that meets their needs in terms of zoning, theme, prims, sq.m. and price

* Showing properties, if a customer needs this level of help (it's fine to leave the office during a shift to accompany/assist a customer)

* Explaining how to buy a lot and pay the rental box

* Explaining how to buy L$ to those who don't understand

* Promoting the Land School tutorials for those who need them, as well as our group and community events

Qualifications and skills:

* As with all our positions, your account must have Payment Info Used status. You will also need the ability and willingness to listen to others speak in Voice. We also prefer that you are willing to use voice yourself, with staff (it is not required that you speak in voice to customers, though you may if you wish).

* Friendly and motivated self-starter, patient with new residents and those whose first language is not English.

* You have a basic understanding of land in SL - how to buy a lot, how to pay a rental box, how to change the land title and description, who can create objects, deeding to group, setting a music stream, etc. We can teach you if you need assistance in this area.

* You are willing and able to work 2 hours per week. You may work more if you wish, up to 4 hours per day if scheduling allows.

* Responsible, willing to show up on time for your scheduled shifts and to notify Estate Staff if you cannot work that day.

The rental agent is a primarily commission-based position. However, as we consider it unfair to have someone get paid nothing if it happens to be a slow day, or if they help many potential customers but none choose to rent, we do pay a base level wage of 100L$ per hour.

Commission Payments

If you do not rent land from us, you will receive the following:
50L$ cash if the customer rents a lot for 250L$/week or less
100L$ cash if the customer rents a lot for 499L$/week to 900L$/week
500L$ cash if the customer rents a lot for 1001L$ to 2000L$
1000L$ cash if the customer rents a lot for over 2000L$/week
Extra bonus at discretion of Ayesha if the customer rents a lot for 5000L$ or more per week

If you rent land from us, and you refer someone to us, you will receive the following:
100L$ rental credit if the customer rents a lot for 250L$/week or less
200L$ rental credit if the customer rents a lot for 499L$/week to 1000L$/week
800L$ rental credit if the customer rents a lot for 1001L$ to 2000L$
1500L$ rental credit if the customer rents a lot for over 2000L$/week
Extra bonus at discretion of Ayesha if the customer rents a lot for 5000L$ or more per week
If you have 1 month or more on your rental box, you may choose instead to get cash at the non-rental rate above

To apply, please send a notecard with some information about yourself and your qualifications to Kalli Birman
