In Minecraft, you may run across these mobs called the Villagers. They are possible mobs that are very similar to you in nature, except there are more of them, and they primarily huddle together and create villages to live in and thrive in.

Most villages have specifically assigned Villagers to specific tasks. These jobs change what each Villager offers in a trade; one example of this would be farmers trade wheat at a much better price when compared to the original Villager’s trades.

Each job has a corresponding block, which helps the player not only to identify the type of job each Villager has but also allows the player to change the Villagers job into a more favorable for the player.

The corresponding Professions and Blocks are below:

  • Armorer – Blast Furnace
  • Butcher – Smoker
  • Cartographer – Cartography Table
  • Cleric – Brewing Stand
  • Farmer – Composter
  • Fisherman – Barrel
  • Fletcher – Fletching Table
  • Leatherworker – Cauldron
  • Librarian – Lectern
  • Mason – Stonecutter
  • Shepherd – Loom
  • Toolsmith – Smithing Table
  • Weaponsmith – Grindstone

Two other types of professions are not listed here, and these types are Unemployed and Nitwit.

Unemployed currently means that the Villager doesn’t have a current profession and can have their profession set by the player placing the corresponding block within 48 blocks of them.

Nitwit isn’t so much a profession as an anti-profession; this is because Villagers with the Nitwit profession are entirely unable to have an assigned profession.

To change a Villager’s profession is fairly easy, all the player needs to do is find the closest profession block ( which has been listed above ) and destroy it while this does upset that Villager because you’ve essentially made them unemployed.

After doing that, and waiting for the Villager to calm down. Players can place the new corresponding profession block within 48 blocks. Eventually, the Villager will go that block and change to their new profession.

One example of this would be to find the Loom for the Shepherd, after finding this block, the player should place the corresponding profession block near that the Villager. After that, the player should break the existing profession block, and after some time, the Villager should go looking for a free profession block. When the Villager goes looking for a free profession block, the user placed profession block should be close by so that the Villager can switch to the desired profession.
