Minecraft Villager Professions/Jobs
Before we get into how to change a villager’s job in Minecraft, it’s important to understand what kind of job a villager has. It needs to be noted that not all of the villagers will have jobs because there are numerous villagers looking for work.
If you come across such villagers in Minecraft, you must determine what type of job they have based on their clothing and the job block with which they are interacting or standing. All of the villager jobs have been condensed in this guide, along with a job site block you can use to quickly and precisely figure them out.
- Armorer – Blast Furnace
- Butcher – Smoker
- Cartographer – Cartography Table
- Cleric – Brewing Stand
- Farmer – Composter
- Fisherman – Barrel
- Fletcher – Fletching Table

- Librarian – Lectern
- Stone Mason (Bedrock Edition only) / Mason (Java Edition Only) – Stonecutter

How to Change Villager Jobs in Minecraft?
In the world of Minecraft, changing a villager’s job is simple. Yes, all you have to do is dismantle the job site block that they have currently employing. If you didn’t get it, let me explain with an example. The Composter block that a Farmer villager is currently using must be destroyed in order to change their job.
It should be noted that Nitwits are those who cannot alter their profession in the game, therefore if you encounter one of these, end up saving yourself some time and continue playing. Before you proceed, keep in mind that breaking the job block that a villager is currently using will enrage them.
However, if you’ve been able to ensure that another job block is empty and placed within roughly a 48-block radius of the villager, they will inevitably begin looking for a new job, stumble upon the block, and instantly change villager jobs in Minecraft.
Put a Blast Furnace next to your former farmer if you still want to turn them into an armorer. After some time, they should change into an armorer on their own without any assistance from you.
That’s all there is to changing a villager’s job in Minecraft.
