NeoPets Game Guides - Faerieland Employment Agency

 


by Autogear

In Neopia, there are many ways to earn NeoPoints that are easily overlooked. Here I'll introduce you to one of those ways of earning np: the Employment Agency.

Basics
The Employment Agency, located in Faerie City, asks you to obtain a certain number of a specific item in the allotted time, usually anywhere from two minutes to nearly an hour. As a reward, you get a certain amount of NeoPoints, usually a higher amount that the np you paid for the items. If you complete the job quickly, you will get extra points.

Super Jobs
These jobs give you a larger reward, but require a job coupon. These are pretty complicated; I don't take the time to bother with them. Oftentimes you end up spending more on the coupon than the reward you receive. Super jobs are best left untouched unless you are up for a big challenge.

Basic Jobs
These are the jobs that don't require a coupon; the guide will mainly focus on these. Before doing anything, open another window with the shop wizard. The basic jobs are supposed to restock every ten minutes (:00, :10, :20, etc.), but the rs usually occurs two or three seconds late.

After the jobs restock, scroll down to the very end of the job list. Don't pay any attention to the items asked for or the time allotted. Just focus on one thing: the reward. You want to pick a job with a reward of at least 3-4000 np, sometimes you can find one with a reward up to 8k.

Click the job title, check the next page to make sure you got it, copy the name of the item, and then switch over to the shop wizard. Paste the item name into the search box and refresh a couple times to find the average price of the item. Once you make sure that they item you are buying isn't overpriced, go to the shop and buy it. Hit the back button and repeat as many times as needed. I would recommend going to a shop that has more than one of the item in stock; you'll get finished faster that way.

After collecting all the items, go back to the employment agency page and hit the button that says "click here to return and complete the job!" Hopefully you'll get a message somewhat like this one:

Good job! You got all the items we wanted.
You receive a bonus for finishing the job quickly!
The job took you 1 minute and 37 seconds.
You have been paid 4462 NeoPoints.

Congratulations! You have just completed your first job. Along with a nice profit, the agency keeps track of the number of jobs completed/failed. Anyone can view these by going to your NeoPet's lookup.

Thanks
I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read this guide; I hope it has at least helped you a little bit. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to send me a neomail.
