Job Board.jpg

Jobs are handled through the Shelter Job Board interface in the Cafeteria. The Player can assign people to projects if they have the requisite skills and items to take on the task. Most jobs have limited work slots. It is also possible to repair some of the upgrades when they break down. For projects that require a certain number of hours to complete: each survivor will contribute 12 hours per day to the task, from 8am to 8pm.

The PC can also work at the school, but it is probably not the best use of his or her time.
