After School: Jobs & Careers

Riccardo, job hunting

I get fairly nerdy when it comes to jobs and careers for my Sims. Many require degrees for the top jobs but my Sims don’t always keep their jobs, either! With a selection of mods to enhance the process, it’s not not totally straightforward when it comes to getting a job!
This system is still very much a Work-In-Progress so this page will probably update regularly.

*Mods I Use*

  • Career Overhaul Suite ~ Kuttoe created a lovely overhaul of the careers to include new objectives and degree requirements for the Maxis jobs. A very detailed mod and a lot of fun to work through the careers now.
  • Job Finding ~ Zer0 created one of the best mods I’ve found for jobs: the Job Finding mod! This allows your Sims to go through the interview process, build themselves a CV and gain their Job Finding skill.
  • Software Engineer Odd Jobs Pack ~ Provides four odd jobs themed around software engineers and the programming skill.
  • Writing Themed Odd Jobs Pack ~ Provides three odd jobs centred around the writing skill.
  • Animal Themed Odd Jobs Pack ~ Provides 20 animal-themed odd jobs for the animal lover Sims.
