Carl's Sims 3 Guide - Skills, Traits, Careers, Rewards, and Lifetime Wishes for Ambitions and World Adventures

The Sims 3 Business Career Track

This Sims 3 Guide was originally written for the PC and Mac versions of the game, but also will help owners of the console versions - PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Please remember some info or numbers may have changed.

Business Career Track in the Sims 3To get a job in the business career track, have your Sim apply at the office building in town. Interestingly, this career track requires no skills, only friends (co-workers and boss). Eventually they'll have to hold meetings in their spare time to begin to excel. Power Brokers (level 10) will get paid handsomely for the meetings they hold, and work very short hours throughout the week. They'll make $500 per hour ($750) for holding a 1 1/2 hour meeting.

Good Traits for The Sims 3's Business Career Track

You'll notice that the business career track is a bit unique. It features no skill-based performance metrics. In short, most any Sim can excel in this track so long as they befriend the boss and co-workers. With that in mind, I have only one recommendation:

Schmoozer rocks for those days when aspiring CEO can spend a little time around the water cooler. This will help your Sim to befriend all co-workers. You'll need to meet them all first, and I recommend your Sim spends their first days doing so until they've accomplished this. Afterward, switch to talking to them during work hours to get the friends bars moving on all at once. Your Sim will do even better at this with the office hero lifetime happiness reward.
