10-Year-Old Kids Are Applying For Professional Minecraft Jobs

10-Year-Old Kids Are Applying For Professional Minecraft Jobs

One of the true beauties of Mojang's Minecraft is its limitless demographic, being easily accessible and understandable to all ages. Whether you're a child finding your feet in gaming, or a parent looking to get an understanding of these pesky Endermen, the vibrant palette and easygoing nature of Minecraft is literally for everyone to enjoy.

Many of the younger generations have grasped an unwavering concept of the game, pouring hours in to make some of the most abstract and wonderful designs possible. With a huge range of blocks to use, structures such as Middle Earth and Hogwarts Castle have all been created in Minecraft, showing the extensive range that can be made possible.

Now, a job posting is allowing some players to become a Virtual Landscape Gardener in Minecraft, and it has attracted applicants as young as ten.

Posted to WhatShed, the role will "recruit a collective of virtual landscape gardeners to provide professional advice to players looking to improve their in-game outdoor space."

With such a young audience, comments have poured in wondering about the age limit. Applicants such as Colt Sharp have said "I really hope I can get this job I’m only ten but I’m sure I could help", whilst Marat said, "Hello, can I participate if I do not have a game console and I am 14 years old?"

Minecraft Landscape Application Is Receiving Resumes From 10-Year-Old Kids

The laws surrounding minimum working ages in the UK mean that applicants under the age of 13 (14 in the United States) will, unfortunately, be unsuccessful. The job listing has an age selection box starting at 21, although there is an option for the younger applicants to select "other" and add their age.

WhatShed outlined the steep hourly rate, which has surely attracted many of the older applicants too. Writing on the listing, the company stated: "Successful consultants will get paid upwards of £50 an hour for their services when hired, but will be able to set their own rates and work flexibly."

Getting paid to play Minecraft, sign me up - although you may want to keep this from the kids...
