[Top 10] The Sims 4 Best Career Mods

If for some reason you’re someone who actually plays the Sims the way it was intended, and doesn’t cheat for millions of Simoleons, then you’re probably a bit bored of the careers. There are a few different career options to choose from, with each expansion pack usually adding a few more, and the active careers that came with Get to Work are always fun to play. But they could always be improved, this list will countdown the 10 best career mods for the Sims 4.

10. Itsmetroi’s Youtuber Career Mod


Fantayzia showcases Itsmetroi's Youtube Career mod

Being a Youtuber is now a sustainable career choice, seeing the success that can be gained from the platform has encouraged many young people to pursue it themselves. Itsmetroi is a Youtuber herself, mainly focusing on Sims 4 content, so it’s not surprising that she made a career where could play as herself.

The mod adds one new career, that your sims will travel to each day. It’s a rabbit hole career meaning that you don’t get to see your sim at work, which is a bit weird considering most Youtuber’s work from home. You need to continue producing videos and working hard at your job to gain traction and progress to internet superstardom.

Why the Youtuber mod is fun: 

  • As you progress through your career, you gain different skills. Skills include gaming, writing, painting, cooking, and handiness. The more skills you have, the more variety of videos you can produce.
  • Once you reach rank 6 of the career, you get to choose which branch you would like to specialize in. These include Gamer, Vlogger, MUA, and cooking. Getting promoted means more money per hour, but, your hours do lessen, imitating an upload schedule.

9. Kuttoe’s Career Overhaul Suite

Kuttoe has put in a lot of work to completely overhaul the game career system. They’ve changed the promotion tasks, the pay rate, and other minor details. This mod really adds a challenge to the game.

This mod is a must-have if you are a story-based player. Without it, it is so easy to advance through careers and be at the very top before you’ve even turned into an adult, if only it were that easy in real life. Players who like a more realistic style of play will be happy with the changes to the pay rate, which has been drastically lowered to be more like real life.

Why the Career Overhaul mod is fun:

  • Promotion requirements are now a lot harder, gone are the simple days of leveling up a skill and playing video games for 2 hours. Now, you’ll have different goals based on your career, doctors need an expansive education, meaning you’ll have to attend university and study for the right degree. Those in the business career will need to have a certain amount of friends because that’s how promotions are based, right?
  • Pay rates now actually make some sense, you earn a whole lot less when you first start your career, and it gradually rises as you rise through your career path. It adds a bit of realism to the game, although I’m sure the prices are still highly inflated because being a sim is very expensive.
  • If you have Discover University installed, your sim will no longer start a career at level 7 if they have a relevant degree. This feature in the game is a little too OP, your sim doesn’t really have to do any real work to reach the top of their career. The mod changes it so you start at either level 3 or 4, and you keep the original pay bonus!

8. Zero’s Job Finding Mod


Itsmetroi showcases Zero's Job Finding mod

Job hunting in Sims 4 can’t really be described as hunting. You pick up the phone, choose what job you’d like, and bam, instantly employed. Obviously, this is not how real life works, and if you’re looking for more realism in the game, then check out this mod.

Now, instead of instantly being employed, your sim will have to go through the same hardships as us humans. There’s a new Job Finding skill, the higher your skill, the better jobs you can apply for. That’s right, you now have to attend job interviews, and do well, to get the job of your dreams.

Why the Job Finding mod is fun:

  • Regular and Part-Time jobs are now recognizably different. When applying for a part-time job, the employers will simply look at your resume and cover letter to see if you’re a good fit. Regular jobs, that is more stable jobs will call you in for an interview.
  • You can, and will be, rejected. It’s brutal but it’s true, not everywhere is going to want to hire you, especially if you don’t have the right qualifications. If you feel as though you’ve been unjustly rejected, you can sue the company! Get your Simoleons in any way you can!
  • If you don’t want to sue, simply lie on your resume and try and fool your interviewers. Write a bunch of lies about how skilled you are and how overqualified you are for the job, just pray that they don’t call you out on your supposed excellence at gourmet cooking.

7. It’s Katato’s Daycare Teacher Career Mod (Requires Toddler Stuff Pack)


Fantayzia showcases Katato's Daycare Teacher Career mod

A much-loved feature of The Sims 3, the daycare career was left behind when the Sims 4 was released. The active career was a fan favorite, staying at home looking after screaming children was apparently a large appeal. But Katato has brought it back!

Either choose to work from home, which is the whole point and where the fun is, or go to work at the rabbit hole career, not fun, would not recommend. Toddlers will come to your house while their parents are at work, and it’s your job to make sure none of them die, so no pressure.

Why the Daycare Teacher mod is fun:

  • Working from home means that 2-5 toddlers will spawn on your lot, you must have toddlers placed in your world for this to work. You’ll have goals to complete, as it works as a social event. Goals include having story time, nap time, and making lunch for all toddlers on the lot.
  • You can get paid up to 1000 simoleons a day for looking after the little tots. Based on how well you do throughout the day, the rewards, and pay, change. If you achieve the gold-level status you can earn between 500 and 1000 simoleons, not a bad way to earn some cash.

6. Midnitetech’s Career Pack Mod


UrbanSims showcases Midnitetech's Career Pack mod

This mod pack is Barbie-inspired. Bet you weren’t expecting that, huh? Midnitetech took inspiration from all the different careers that Barbie has been seen in since she was released.

It adds in a ton of new careers to choose from, some of which seem like no-brainers that should be included in the base game. With nearly 80 careers to choose from, this mod pack is a must for those of you who are bored of playing the same careers over and over again.

Why the Career Pack mod is fun:

  • There are 10 branches of career, each with its own subset of careers to choose from! The possibilities really are endless with this mod, you can make your sim be whatever you’ve dreamed of!
  • Branches include Politics, Medicine, Education, Arts, Business, and many more! Each branch has varying levels of promotions, and the jobs are different from each promotion so it can get a little confusing, but it’s definitely worth it!

5. KPC0528’s Medical Career Mod

Primsa showcases KCP0528's Medical Career mod

The Sims 4 Get to Work came with an interactive doctor career, but it’s not the most realistic portrayal. So, if you’re looking to recreate Grey’s Anatomy levels of drama, maybe without all the sex, then keep reading!

This mod is detailed, it has your sim work from med student all the way up to renowned surgeon, of which you get to choose your specialty! It’s a hard career with long hours that not every sim is cut out to survive, can your sim be the one?

Why the Medical Career mod is fun: 

  • Once you reach level 5 of the career, after completing med school and your residency, you get to pick between 4 different specialties. Cardiology, Pediatrics, Plastics, or Dermatology. Each specialty has its own ranks, with each one resulting in you becoming the head of the department at the local hospital.
  • It’s realistic when your sim is just starting, they must do 2 levels of med school, and you don’t get paid for either one, because that’s what happens in real life. Once you enter your residency you begin to see some money, but it’s not a lot. When you’ve mastered your specialty, that’s when you start seeing some real money.
  • There may be updates in the future! The creator has said that they plan to add some new career tracks, such as OBGYN, Neurology, and Trauma. Fill the hospital with extremely attractive doctors and live out your Grey’s Anatomy fantasy!

Tired of your sims being astronauts and 5-star chefs? Looking for something a bit more realistic and regular? The 9-5 mod is perfect for injecting a dose of realism into the game, allowing your sims to hold down regular, real-life jobs.

Not everyone is cut out to be a lawyer or a world-class athlete. This mod pack allows players to truly create and play as themselves. Work in retail? No problem. Or maybe you’re a secretary? This mod lets you live your dream.

Why the 9-5 Career mod is fun:

  • You can pick from 20 different jobs! Gone are the days of having to work a ridiculous job and fly to space to get promoted. Now, you can simply enjoy working as a librarian, or a mechanic.
  • There are no promotions, you have your one job and that’s it. Of course, you can quit anytime you like if you feel as though you’re not being pushed. But if you’re playing as a single mom just trying to make a living, this pack is more than ideal.

2. Galaxy777’s Multiple Job Mod


Itsmetroi showcases Galaxy777's Multiple Job mod

One of the most frustrating things about the Sims 4 is that your sim can have 1 job, and that’s it. Sims 3 allowed you to have a main job and a part-time job but this feature was left out of Sims 4, luckily, there are mods and you are now able to have multiple careers.

You have to pay close attention to the hours of each job, obviously, you can’t have 2 jobs that have the same hours. So, find a morning job and an evening job, and if your sim is a workaholic, then you will love this mod.

Why the Multiple Job mod is fun:

  • It adds realism to the game, there are many people out there who have to work 2 jobs to have a steady income, so it’s only fair that sims should have to do the same. It’s a good option for when you first start, and you’re wanting to get as much money as you can.
  • It’s a good way to build skills! Each career requires you to level up certain skills, by working multiple jobs, your sims will earn these skills automatically. You also meet new people, get new objects and of course, extra money.

Fantayzia showcases Piscean6's Wedding Planner mod

If you never want your sim to get married, but love weddings, you’re kinda weird. But! Luckily there’s a mod for that, so your sim gets to plan as many weddings as they want and experience the love.

This mod adds a new career, with the standard 10 levels for you to progress through. You start low in the business, simply assisting the best wedding planners, but with hard work and dedication, you can be the best wedding planner in the Sim world!

Why the Wedding Planner mod is fun:

The career is detailed, with cute little descriptions of each stage of the career. And as you progress through your career, you get more money, build skills and gain relationships with those around town.

It’s a challenge, to reach the top, you need to master the Charisma skill. Something that is feared and dreaded by every sims player. Why is this skill so hard? Talking in a mirror for 12 hours a day only gets you so far! This mod encourages you to go out and talk to real people to make sure you get to the top of your career.
