Active Careers 1

How To Enable Cheats In Sims 4?

Before we explore Get To Work cheats, we need to activate cheats, first! Launch the game and start playing. Then, open the cheat bar by simultaneously pressing the following buttons:

  • PC: Ctrl + Shift + C
  • Mac: Command + Shift + C
  • PlayStation: L1 + R1 + L2 + R2
  • Xbox: LT + RT + LB + RB

The cheat bar will pop up in the upper left corner of your screen. Type testingcheats true (or testingcheats on), hit Enter, and cheats are now enabled in your game!

1. Career Cheats: Doctor, Scientist, And Detective

Get To Work Cheats 1

Get To Work EP features three new active careers, that are pretty fun, but can be demanding. These are Doctor, Scientist, and Detective career, and all have 10 levels for Sims to conquer. Luckily, there are cheats that can help your Sim climb to the top of the ladder without much effort. These are the promotion codes:

  • To promote Sims in Scientist career – careers.promote adult_active_scientist
  • To promote Sims in Detective career – careers.promote detective 
  • To promote Sims in Doctor career – careers.promote doctor 

Note that these career cheats trigger promotion for only one level at a time for Sims who are already employed in these fields. You will need to type the cheat a few times to help them climb a few levels up. For instance, to go from level 1 to level 4 in the Doctor career, you’ll need to use the careers.promote doctor cheat three times to get to level 4. To demote your Sims, just replace the word promote with demote:

  • Scientist career – careers.demote adult_active_scientist 
  • Detective career – careers.demote detective 
  • Doctor career – careers.demote doctor

To help Sims learn skills needed for these three careers, check out skill cheats!

2. Skill Cheats: Baking

Get To Work Cheats

Initially, there were two skills specific to Get To Work, baking and photography. However, photography later became a base game skill, and is now available to all players. Baking is still specific to Get To Work EP. It’s a major skill with 10 levels, and gives Sims an opportunity to enjoy fine pastries and earn some money by selling baked goods. You can make them learn gradually, or use a cheat for leveling up baking skill!

To use a baking skill cheat, just use stats.set_skill_level major_baking #. Replace the ‘#’ symbol at the end of the cheat with a number from 1-10, depending on what level you want them to reach. 

For example, to make them max out baking, type stats.set_skill_level major_baking 10, and the game will instantly notify you that your Sim has just mastered baking! 

3. Trait Cheats: Sickness Resistance Hidden Trait

Although there are no new personality traits or aspirations that come with the Get To Work expansion, there is a new hidden reward trait Sims can unlock. This is the Sickness Resistance trait, and it can only be earned by reaching level 8 in the Doctor career – or by using cheats! 

  • To give your Sim Sickness Resistance trait – traits.equip_trait Trait_Doctor_SicknessResistant 
  • To remove Sickness Resistance trait – traits.remove_trait Trait_Doctor_SicknessResistant 

These chats apply to all Sims, not just those who work as doctors. Thanks to cheats, you can give (or remove) this trait to any adult, regardless of their profession!

4. Reatail Cheats: Perks

Besides three new careers, the first Sims 4 expansion pack also features a retail system that allows Sims to open and run their private business. There are so many shop ideas you can come up with, Sims can open flower shops, pet stores, or even witchcraft stores. Managing a business and earning perk points to spend on retail parks takes time, but luckily, cheats can come in aid anytime:

Get To Work Cheats

Aliens are a new life form that comes with the Get To Work Expansion pack. The pack features a new hidden mini world, or a hidden alien lot called Sixam, as well as new alien objects, plants, and collectibles. And you guessed it, there are Get To Work cheats that unlock these and can even turn your Sim into an alien.

Using these cheats, you can unlock objects such as a satellite dish or a rare plant called UFO fruit, make an alien from Sixam your family member, or trigger an abduction. The abduction cheat is especially helpful if you want to get your Sim pregnant by an alien.


Some gameplay goals, like alien abduction or male pregnancy, often need a little push’ with cheats, especially if you want faster story development in your game. If cheats don’t work for you, you can find out why that may be here. Give them a go, and happy simming!
