The Sims 2: All Careers

About Sims

A complete list of all the careers included in The Sims 2 game series (base game and expansion packs).


Somethings to know about having a career in The Sims 2:

In order to apply for a job you need to check the daily newspaper or use your computer. If you have no skills, it makes no difference which means you will use to find a job, as you will have to start from the bottom of the chosen career path anyway (level 1). If you do have some skills though, it's preferable to use the computer. Not only the computer has more job listings, but also offers the chance to start working on a higher level, depending on the skills you have and job's requirements.

Ιn The Sims 2, you will have to work on certain "skills" in order to be eligible for promotion. Required skills are different for different career paths. Furthermore, having a good mood is also required in order to excel in your job. In the contrary, continuous low performance will get you fired.

Having a good mood is also required when the time comes to go to work. If you are in a bad mood and skip work one day, you will receive a warning, skipping work another day in a row, will get you fired.

Last but not least, you are entitled to some vacation days, maternity leave, and to call in sick. If you are not really sick though and your performance is low, your employer might not believe you. In this case, the day will count as having missed work, which will result in getting fired if you miss work the next day too. But if you are indeed sick, no worries, your employer will believe you, and you won't suffer any consequences.

Whether you managed to reach the top of the career path or not, when the time comes to retire, you will receive a daily amount as pension. The ammount of 7 days compensation will sum up to half of your last salary. For example, if your last salary was §1400, you will receive a §100 daily, i.e. §700/week. If money is not enough to make a living, you can always get a part time job, it won't affect your daiy pension.

About Sims Transfer

I will upload all my creations here. That means uploading +/-3.500 files... and many, many more images. It will take quite some time... I will give priority to The Sims 4 meshes and The Sims 4 downloads in general. The Sims 2 downloads will follow, then The Sims 1 (because they are just a few). Anything else will follow in whatever order I see more convenient. As for News, Screenshots and Tutorials, the priority will be to add fresh content. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

- All Sims4 and Sims1 creations are now uploaded.

- All Sims3 creations are now uploaded.
