Minecraft's villagers are just like humans. They wake up, get their work done for the day and go back to sleep. This is how the developers have been able to keep it lively and interactive as well.

However, some villagers don't have jobs at all and are called "Nitwits" in Minecraft. These villagers usually go to their respective job blocks, do nothing and call it a day. Minecraft villager jobs help the players in a lot of ways and players can contact each villager in the game accordingly. They can also change how the game plays out for each player individually as well. Villager jobs should be thoroughly known by all players for them to understand what to do when they come across a villager in the game.
