The Sims 4 Career Options

A career reward is an object that is unlocked when a sim reaches a certain level of a career. Some of these rewards make pursuing a related career very much worth it, as you will get items that influence your sim’s emotions and alter your gaming experience. Here are the best career rewards, ranked!


10. Invest in stocks (Investor branch – Business Career)

Watch from 1:17.

When you reach level 7 in the Investor branch of the business career, you unlock a cool interaction that allows you to invest in stocks from a computer. You can choose to invest either §1000, §2000, or §5000. 48 hours later, you’ll get a return on your investment!

This can make you a TON of simoleons, potentially more than doubling your investment! On the other hand, an investment can go bad, and you could receive less than §500 back.

You can also ‘research stocks’ which gives you a +1 focused moodlet. If you invest in stocks while this moodlet is active, you’ll increase your chance of getting a good return on your investment.

Why ‘Invest in Stocks’ is great:

  • Easy way to make simoleons
  • Fun – it’s up to chance
  • Can do it every 48 hours so can invest consistently
