Skill-Based Careers in Sims 3 Ambitions

in Sims 3 Expansions, Sims 3 Guides, Sims 3 Lists, World Adventures

There are basically two different kinds of jobs in Sims 3 Ambitions. The first is a career/job where you have to report to the job at a specific time and you earn specific salary.

The other type of job is a “skill-based career”. This means you’re self-employed. Which is pretty cool because you get to determine your own hours. A good choice if you’re Sim hates other people or maybe wants to have a really big family – the Sim can make money and still be around the house.

You get the job or jobs by going to City Hall and signing up. What’s available to you depends on what skills you have. The more skills, the more jobs you can sign-up for.
