Career branches: Expert and Supervisor

Prepare for your job as a Salaryperson

Pick up the phone and choose the Salaryperson career to get started. We have some tips and tricks for you to help make it easier to get promotions.

  • Level up the Logic skill
    Use the microscope, observatory, chess table or read a logic skill book to improve the Logic skill. Most of these activities fill up the Fun Need, so pick wisely.
  • Level up the Writing skill
    Use a computer to Practise Writing. Once your Sim gets a higher skill, they will unlock more book genres to write and even the ability to become a published author from the comfort of their own home.
  • Pick a helpful aspiration
    Fabulously Wealthy or perhaps the Mansion Baron aspirations seem to be the most fitting for this career. Your Sim will spend a lot of their time making money so why not check these aspiration milestones off your to-do list.
  • Go to work with a positive emotion
    Pick the right traits so your Sim gets a happy buff quite easily. Make sure your needs are almost maxed out or you can work from home.
  • Complete the daily task
    This will give a boost to your work performance.
  • Maintain a good relationship with co-workers
    When you completed your first workday your colleagues will pop up in the relationship menu. Give them a call, text or invite them to your home to get a better relationship.

For the Expert branch

  • Level up the Programming skill
    The Expert branch is all about cracking the data behind the productivity of the corporate world. Use a computer to practise programming or pick up a book about the Programming skill.

For the Supervisor branch

  • Level up the Charisma skill
    Your Sim will need to be a respective leader in the Supervisor branch. The better your Charisma, the more you can charm those below you to do your bidding. Interact with other Sims or use a mirror to practise your speech. 

Pick the right Traits

It’s helpful to pick the right traits for the job. This will boost the happiness of your Sim while working.

  • Ambitious
    These Sims gain powerful Moodlets from career success, gain negative Moodlets from career failure and may become upset if not promoted.
  • Genius
    The Sims tend to be Focused, can Share Ideas with other Sims and may become upset if they haven’t improved their Mental Skills for some time.
  • Self-Assured
    These Sims tend to be Confident.

Career Promotions

Now that you’re settled in a bit, it’s time to work on getting your Sim the promotions they deserve. Your Sim will disappear into a rabbit hole while they’re working, so now all you have to do is wait for them to return home or perhaps play other Sims in your household. 

Use cheats to level up the Salaryperson career

You can also use a cheat to give your Sim a promotion in the Salaryperson career. Make sure the testingcheats true cheat is turned on and then enter the following:
