  2. Once your sim has gotten all of the promotions, do you need to keep sending them to work?

  3. Can a Sim have more than 1 job

  4. Is it best to have each sim have a different career or can we just use the career that pays the most?

  5. Can I change a sims job? Thanks so much.

  6. Does your sims job affect their life Dream if their life dream is NOT to
    say go to work as a Musician every day? It’s something else like singing on the microphone?

  7. In some of the quests you have to have a sim hybernate, can I get credit for this step by having a baby hybernate?

  8. Which career would you suggest as the best?
    I have all my sims as athletes as when they are inspired and at max promotions, then they earn 2700 each.

  9. Ever had a Sim who couldn’t go to work?

    Yesterday at 9 PM I used 1 LP to have them finish bowling, then sent them to work at the Town Hall. This morning their briefcases are greyed out. Normally when I send them to work before midnight, I can send them again the next morning…

    I hope this resolves tomorrow. Is this a common issue?😦

  10. What level are you on the sims freeplay

  11. They should have a veterinarian as a job!

  12. Hi, could you please help me with that? I want to send my Sim for a firefighting competition. He achieved a high level in this career, but now he works as a real estate agent. Does he still remember his firefighting skills? And same question I have for hobbies, when they changed it do they forget what they’ve learnt in previous hobby?

  13. Once a sim is at the top level as an actor, do they earn extra money at work if they keep practicing film making at home?

  14. Thank you so very much for having this page! I’ve referenced it frequently.

  15. Thanks for all the hard work you put into thisπŸ™‚

  16. Quick question about jobs. I have the majority of my sims as actors because of the pay. Is there a reason you have them as athletes? Also I’m on the seniors quest but I have a few things I want to do before LD&L Quest (get the ski lift running, build Deer Park Falls). How much money should I have before going onto LD&L and would you recommend me finishing those things before going to the last quest?

    Also I LOVE your blog. I’m so glad you have it it’s kept me going when I’ve felt like quitting!

    • Who knows! Probably just said athlete when I meant actor or they have changed the amount you earn.
      Its impossible to say how much money are are going to need, but the quest itself shouldn’t cost you anything. And if you want to complete all quests within the time limits to get the prizes then I would recommend doing the quests first but if you aren’t bothered about completing them in time then you could build those things now but I personally would wait
      Thanks!

  17. Will u be my Game Center friend please my Game Center name is Immy$$$

  18. Why can’t they have ballet as a job. Or superhero. Spy would be epic and I know they have secret agent in sims 4.

  19. Do you think they will ever make a career for animal lover personalities?

  20. Is it possible to get the outfits they go to work in because some of them are nice. Love your blog thanks a mill!!!

  21. Can you guvs your sims a time to go to work ? Like can you create a time on sims to go to work

  22. Can you make a new sim without building a House?:) if yes how?:)

  23. Hello, thanks for your guides. I have a question about inspiration.
    I always send my sims to work after making their needs(motives) 100% fullfilled. Is it logical to always keep them at 100%? do they drain while my sims are at work? Even if i don’t have all the motives 100%, inspired status stays for a while till they drain to certain level. I mean, if I send an inspired, but not 100% sim to work, is there a chance to lose payment bonus? Can they lose inspiration? Thanks.

    • They won’t lose money if you don’t send them to work inspired, I only inspire my sims when I want them to plant, I don’t when I send them to work and they still earn bonuses from the monuments

      • What does it mean to be inspired? 100% for every need (hunger, bladder, hygiene, energy, conversation, and the inspiration bars) or just the last bar will do?

        And what/how will it affect if our sims aren’t inspired while completing certain actions (like planting)?

      • Yes, all the bars need to be completely or almost completely full up
        If your sim isn’t inspired they earn less money and XPs when planting and less XPs when completing actions.

  24. Hey!
    I know all
    About sending a sim to work and I have read all through your blog but I can’t seem to find out how long I have to wait between pulsing suitcase and sending a sim to work and then returning until the suitcase pulses again. If that makes sense!? I’m on the extreme home takeover quest and am about to run out of time and I need to send a sim to work at the real estate agency right away! But she already had returned from work at around 10am or so and its been 12 hours and I’m still waiting! Let me know! ThanksπŸ™‚

  25. My sims cant go to work its been like 2 months, is there a way to fix this? I already tried changing the career but the go to work button doesnt light up…

  26. Do the career items help thrm further in there career example soccor ball guitar fire hydrant?

  27. Is it worth having all sims to be police cause it has professions and they seem to be quite hard to get

    • You can only have two sims specialise in either metro police or special agent so the other sims will only be rookies so I wouldn’t have all sims as police because they won’t all be useful in that job.

  28. Thanks for all you do. Appreciate all the help and read lots of your tips and suggestion it has been a great help.

    Question is: above you do not include police which i assume it has just become available and not much has been stated about it.

    What your experience with this job?

  29. how can i hug a neighbour’s cat when he doesn’t have one

  30. So the Athlete is the best job because it earns the most money (1800) at the highest promotion?

  31. Wish i would have taken the survey after i built the hospital. 18-30 minutes to complete something? Thats just alot of time. 10 mins max like the other jobs.

  32. Great blog.

    So.. I’m doing well on my sims. So you know how on sims 1, 2, 3 you can read something or play chess to level up for your careers. In free play is it possible to read up on something to help with your job sans the career nor hobby items. Example scientist track reading a science magazine or actor reading celebrity gossip

    I read whatever I get prompted but sometimes I’m busy with other tasks and want my Sim to do something besides leveling up.

  33. Hi, does your sim lose their career level when switching between careers? I have a level 3 Jogger at the studio and thinking of switching to Doctor. If I don’t like it and switch back, will i begin at level 1 again?

  34. I currently have two sims at those profession workplaces, one as a Director and one as a Detective. For the next badge I need Award Statues and Fingerprints. I have unlocked the rooms, so I should be able to collect them but I don’t know how. Are they just like the other resources (Donuts, Flashlights, Popcorn,..)? Do I have to wait for people to show up with that kind of bubble?
    Thankful for any help I can getπŸ™‚

    • Have you definitely unlocked all the rooms? Because I have sims that come in all the time with award statues and fingerprints, you can also get them as the reward for completing your quota so they do show up!

      • Yeah, right after I wrote the comment someone appeared with an Award Statue πŸ˜… It took about a day that’s why I asked, thought something went wrong.
        Thank you though!πŸ™‚

  35. First of all, THANK YOU for your effort and patience.
    My questions are:
    Are there rewards to basic careers (Fire Fighters, Artists, etc.) such as Town Worth, or items available for Sims or Houses? I maxed out my experience level, and I can’t recall if careers offer something rewarding.
    What would you suggest: gardening or careers to get Simoleons?
