How to recruit a Companion
Once you have assigned your companion a role, to can activate the role effects by talking to them and selecting the "Let's hang out!" option. Your companion will then follow your Dreamlight Valley avatar and gather more resources depending on their role. You can only have one companion at a time, so if you ask another character to hang out, your first companion will return to their area.
Since you can only assign one role to each character, it's a good idea to spread out different roles between characters to get the most resources.
