The comprehensive Snooty Sims 4 careers list

On this site, we have collected all the sims 4 careers paths. The list includes each step for climbing up the career ladder including the salaries. We have also included all the requirements needed to be promoted. In total, the Sims 4 includes 23 careers. This is due to the fact that you can chose between two different career paths for each of the professions included in the Sims 4. We have included both paths in our comprehensive sims 4 career list that you will find below.

How to climb up the career ladder

Before coming to our comprehensive sims 4 careers overview, we would like to also refer you to our post on sims 4 career mods and would like to share some insights with you on how to be successful in the professional world. In general, for climbing up the career ladder and developing within the careers the game offers your sim needs to fulfill all the requirements demanded for the chosen career path. The following three factors are the attributes which are most important for your sim to be successful in the job:

  • First of all, your sim should go to work in good mood, take care that your sim is neither tired nor hungry
  • What is also important, having good relations with the chef and also with the colleagues
  • And last but not least, this is actually the most important factor, your sim needs to fulfill certain daily tasks

So, what are typical daily tasks? Those vary from one career to the other: An athlete for instance needs to do certain training sessions each day. A musician needs to make music and an artist needs to paint. Thus far, rather obvious activities. What is important is to fulfill this task day by day by 100 percent. If your sim will be able to achieve this goal, your sim will be successful in the job. If all this is not enough, you may also have a look into our cheats section 🙂
