However, if your Sims want to become the tech guru, all they need to do is use their phone or computer. If on the phone, click on the suitcase icon and select Find a Job. If they are on a job hunt on their computer, simply go to the Career section. In both cases, you’ll get a pop-up menu where you can select a career for your Sim. Find Tech Guru on the list, confirm your choice, and get ready to make simoleons by playing video games!

who is best suited for a tech guru job?

With Sims 4, the sky is the limit, so all Sims from young adults to older who are interested in gaming and startups will be able to join it any time. However, some things, like having the right degree, aspiration, or traits can help them rank up much faster.

Having a Computer Science degree can be extremely helpful, so if in doubt about what university course to choose for your tech guru, opt for this one. Because Sims will spend a lot of time on computer gaming and programming, having traits like Genius or Loner will help them tolerate computer time better, become focused, and stay in a good mood when indoors.

If you are looking for an aspiration that matches your career goals, definitely opt for the Computer Whiz Aspiration. It will make your Sims work on gaming skills and they will have to join a tech guru career to complete milestones, so why not get some reward points as you make simoleons?
