There are plenty of jobs in the Prospectors world. So, even if you don't have your own land and resources to start a business, you can earn by providing your workers to other players. There are two ways you can search for a job for your workers.
1) Study the announcement boards at the nearest plots. This way, you can find an interesting offer of work nearby and don't need to spend time moving to the more remote locations.
2) Or you can enter the general labor market by clicking “All jobs” and choosing from the list of jobs available in the entire game world. Check the location of the plot - you don't want to spend too much time getting to the far away lands.
