How to get a profession

Once you are comfortable embarking on your professional life, you can use your cell phone or computer to access the Work option and thus choose a career. All professions pay by the day, allowing you to gradually increase your prosperity.

On the Careers screen, you can check what is needed to be promoted. Don't forget to manage your emotions too. So bet on the necessary skills and follow the path to success.

Take a professional stance

When your Sim is working, you can click on their portrait to select the type of posture you want them to assume during office hours. You can bet on improving peer relationships, improving skills, working at a normal pace, or working hard. This last option will increase your Sim's stress level, but greatly improve their effort at work.

Typically, the ideal is work hard always and only use the other options if you need something specific for the next promotion.

What are Active Careers?

There are three special careers that give you the option to control your Sim during office hours by completing small tasks to improve your performance.

These professions are Scientist, Doctor and Detective and show a more interactive and fun side to spending time with your Sim.

A Sim is also entitled to fun

All careers start with three days vacation days available, but as your Sim shows up for work without missing a beat, you get more vacation days.

These days are very important for you to be able to take a breath, thus managing your Sim's stress. Just don't forget that when changing careers, all vacations are losses.
