Careers are jobs that you can choose for your villagers, each with a different set of skills and goals. Most careers rely on each other, so it is helpful for each player have villagers of multiple careers.

Career Changes

You can change your villager's career by using the 'Change Career' button located on the villager's current career page. Once you change your villager's career, they cannot change it again until the next even-numbered hour, as measured by server time. That is to say, if you change your villager's career at 1:34pm, you can't change it again until 2:00pm.[1]

Note that when you change your villager's career, they do not lose any of the skill, experience, or items they had in their old career. The information is stored, and should you switch back to their first career, will be retrieved and you can pick up with that career where you left off.

However, a villager can only learn up to four careers. If you don't want this information to be stored, you can erase it by going to the 'Change Career' page again and selecting the 'Unlearn' option next to their old career.
