The Energy Bar and Backpack are located at the top of the screen. The Energy Bar will keep track of your current level of energy. The Energy Backpack icon will allow you to access energy that you have collected and give you the option to use this energy or buy more.
YoVille Energy Pack
It takes Energy to complete Jobs and or work at the Widget Factory. This means that you will get to choose how you want to earn your coins. You can either complete exciting new Jobs, or if you're short on time you can still clock in at the Widget Factory.

You will need 100% energy to be able to work at the factory. Your Energy automatically replenishes to 100% every 5 hours. If you choose to work at the Widget Factory you will be able to do so every 5 hours. This is a recent change from the 6 hour wait period that you used to have at the Widget Factory.

How do I do a Job?

Click on the Briefcase icon at the bottom of the screen. You will then be given a choice of several different and exciting jobs to try. You can have fun being a Party Entertainer, Animal Rescuer, and Ghost Hunter. Give them all a try and discover you favorite! By completing Jobs and mastering Job Categories you will unlock move jobs, earn lots of coins and pick up rare items along the way!
Some days you may want to mix and match these options. If you're rushed in the morning and you just want to make sure you get some coins, head over to the Widget Factory and collect your standard pay. If you have a little time for fun, make sure you try out a new Job! On average the new Jobs will allow you to earn a lot more coins than the factory. You'll also pick up rare items that are only available in jobs, and unlock new jobs as you complete them and level up. Higher level jobs earn higher amounts of coins.

Let's check out some of the basics of the Jobs Game!
YoVille Choose Job Category
When you choose a Job you will be taken to the Job Locations. This may be in an alleyway, a YoVille Party or even a Haunted House! There will be a key mission in your job that you must complete. For example let's check out the Ghost Hunter Job – Creepy Keepsake.
YoVille Creepy Keepsake
In this job, your mission is to find all 9 statues. Once you choose to do this job, you'll be taken to a Haunted House full of ghosts! You will then need to click on all of the ghosts to bust them. Busting the ghosts will give you awesome prizes, coins and YP while you search for the statues. After you are done clicking on all of the ghosts in a room you will see footsteps that lead you to the next room full of ghosts. Once you find all 9 statues your job will be completed and you will be rewarded!

*Hint* You'll see hints along the way to help you find the statues faster. Also when you collect them all you will get an extra coin reward, so be sure to complete your jobs.

Tips for completing Jobs:

Clicking on ghosts is fun, but it also takes your Energy. You use 6 Energy for every ghost you bust.
YoVille Ghosts
Remember to pick up all the coins, YP and prizes that the ghosts leave behind. You'll find lots of rewards to pick up so make sure to not forget anything!

How do I receive Energy?

YoVille ExpressoThere are multiple ways to receive energy. Your Energy Bar automatically replenishes to 100% every 5 hours. Check the timer below your Energy Bar if you want to know when to expect more.

You'll also collect Energy Drinks while completing jobs. It will be a large Energy Drink that will appear after clicking on the ghost, so make sure to click on it. Each Energy Drink will give you some extra energy so try to collect as many as you can!

If you need energy fast you can purchase 100% energy by clicking on the Energy Backpack and then Energy Refill. This will be an extra way to get that energy refill fast if you are itching to get to that next job! If you're not in a hurry, you can always wait for you energy to replenish for free.

Soon you will be able to collect Energy Drinks from your friends through Special Energy Feeds! We're also working on adding Energy Drinks as Free Gifts to send to your friends and ask your friends to send to you.

Well that's about all folks! We'll be testing this with some players before releasing it to everyone, so if you don't have it yet you will be getting it very soon. Congrats to all of the Party House Contest Winners again! Many of you will be seeing your homes showcased in the Jobs Game under the Party Entertainer. =)

We also want to say a huge thank you to the small team of players who have already helped test the new Jobs. They've spent a lot of time testing, sending feedback, and reporting bugs so that our team could make fixes before we release this. You guys have been awesome and we appreciate your help!
