Customs - Customs patrol the city borders to catch aliens, drug runners and fleeing criminals. You will need to train at the local ‘Customs Training Center’ to join the customs patrol.
Armed Forces - Strongly recommended to new players, the ranks are somewhat easy to surpass. There are skills you can train into while part of the army however they may require Auth from the city leaders. You will need to train at the local ‘Army Recruitment Center’ to join the army.
Police (Requires Auth) – The police department is regarded as one of the most powerful careers, and arguably one of the most fun! Being an officer, you can solve all reported crimes within your city, and send them off to the judges.
Law (Requires Auth after Lawyer) – As a lawyer you can represent players in cases where they’ve commited crimes, but as a judge, you sentence them. You will also have to determine whether or not the police have right suspect!
Mayor (Requires Auth) - The Mayor career is considered by some the best legit career in MafiaMatrix. As a Mayor you are responsible for managing and balancing the city budget, and deciding which criminals deserve pardons and conviction wipes.
Criminal - It is preferred not to choose this career unless you have tried at least 1-2 other careers, there is a high risk of being killed, however if you choose to survive, it will take a while to get to Piciotto, you will begin understanding the game in a higher perspective once you reach the rank of Capo, soon enough you'll be the Boss, and a highly respected city bold.
The one thing you should avoid mostly as a new player would be conflict, regardless of your chances of victoriously killing your enemy, It is best to start off quiet, and out of attention until you get some experience under your belt, otherwise you will end up dead (and I mean dead) like many others who never follow this tip. Friendship is one of the keys to success in this MMORPG, take advantage of it. If you can, try editing your quote in a way which you inform everyone of what is necessary, for example, instead of putting "Payback, or i'll shoot you." try putting "Please payback, thank you." Most players in MM will understand you may want your money back. It is best to keep things simple. Not only will it help you survive, but it really helps when quotes with threats of whacking usually are followed once you reach a high criminal rank like Capodecima or Boss, simply because at this point you run a crew with very powerful people (your godfather, your family don, and who can forget, your crew men).
