The Sims 4 Business Career

Rewards for Investors and Managers

The Sims 4 Business Career: Management and Investor
Sims 4's Business Career offers Management and Investor Branches

The Sims 4 Business Career features both Management and Investor Branches. Both of these may offer you opportunities that could, at random, make your Sim some extra money based on what you select and some random variation. The Career relies heavily on the Charisma and Logic Skills, no matter which branch you take. While it starts with an Ideal Mood of Energized, it shifts to Confident at Regional Manager (level 5) while the Career offers you to select a branch upon reaching level 7. Since Emotional buffs are fairly easy to get, you don't need any special traits to pursue either of these Careers. However, Outgoing and a Popularity Aspiration (to give the Gregarious Bonus Trait) may be helpful to leveling Charisma and making Friends. While Friends are not necessary, it's just a perk to be able to have your social interactions succeed more often and perhaps level Charisma faster.

How to: Business Career Cheats
Press Control + Shift + C then type testingcheats on and press enter. You can now get promotions with careers.promote business - you can also see all Career Cheats or visit a full list of Cheats in The Sims 4.

The starting Daily Task, Fill out Reports, can be found on the Computer under the Web menu. Filling out Reports may sometimes give your Sim a Bored Moodlet, "Paperwork Drudgery". This is tough, as it takes a few hours to do and you're already gone for the 9-5. Just accept that your Sim has less time in the early levels and will eventually get a better job without the boring paperwork.

Management Career

Sims 4 Business Management Rewards
Management Branch Rewards offer Confident Auras

The Management Career Branch features Confident Aura items, which are appropriate for the Career however not very useful for gaining progress in it because they don't work when you're out of the room. They may, however, help with the success rate of Make Business Calls (found on the Phone under Household), which may only be done from 8PM-8AM on Weekdays - meaning your Sim needs to do them after work hours. Making these calls can help you get promoted faster so long as you have the Skill requirements met. Sims who make successful calls may get a Confident or +2 Embarrassed Moodlet depending whether they succeed or fail at the deal. It's more important you complete them than if you bother to make them. I'd do them after work so that there is no chance of going into work totally embarrassed and risking some kind of freak accident emotional death. In order to get Confident before Work, you can simply Psych Self Up using a mirror or make your Sim brush their teeth.

Investor Career

Sims 4 Investor Career
Sims 4's Investor Branch offers Focused Items

Investor Benefits
The Investor Branch has an Ideal Mood of Focused. It is the one I'd prefer between the two choices here, simply because of the Invest in Stock ability. Researching Stocks is the daily task (done under Computer > Web) and can give a +1 Focused Moodlet when complete. You'll also gain the ability to invest your Sim's money in stock. It seems that if you first use the Research Stocks ability and get the Moodlet you will have better results from investing, although you can still lose money. You can get up to 2.5x your money, or lose big and get only 20% of it back - there's a huge range of possibilities. Sims may invest $1,000, $2,000 or $5,000. In the long run, it seems worth the risk if your Sim has the Simoleons to spare. Investments may be made every 48 hours.

The Investor's Career Reward of items that give Focused Moodlets may aid in Investing, but is sure to help in other computer-related endeavors like Programming and building their Logic Skill should you place a Chess board or other Logic-building item within the same room. The easiest way to get Focused before work is to use a chess board and ponder moves just before the carpool arrives.

Is filling out reports supposed to take 10 hours? All my guy does is use the bathroom, shower, fill out reports and go to work.2 hours of sleep a night. This seems
wrong.

That used to happen with my Business Sim, Thomas Trust. But he's insane, so I think it took ages because he talked to the computer desk (facepalm). Now I just check every so often to make sure he's not doing that. Make sure he's not multitasking and see if that works.

It takes my sim much less time than that! Maybe try deleting the cache files and repairing your game and hopefully that should speed things up for you.

Has anyone encountered the headhunted chance card? What are the outcomes? Should I stay loyal or move on? I always pick based on my sims personality which so far has gotten me nowhere in this career. If anyone knows what happens I would love your input.Unsure

I have encountered that work op a few times. The chance of a successful outcome is just that, chance. I've had both a successful and unsuccessful outcome with each choice! Choosing by your sims personality is probably the best game play option. Smile

Whenever i invest 2000 or 5000 it tells me i got a good return from my investment, but i only get back 1000 - 2000. Is that how its suppose to be, because i can never make a profit from investing in the bigger numbers

Might be useful to clear out your cache files as investing should give you positive returns. It is a random chance but I've mostly received a positive return or an outright loss in which place the game message tells me that.

How long does it usually take to get promotions in the investor career track?

The usual is probably about one every two days if you are using the 'work hard' tone and sending your sim with a long lasting 'correct' moodlet and of course completing the daily tasks and staying ahead of the needed skill levels.

How do I complete the daily task of "solving 6 cases" for my colonel?

Admin
Playalotsays...
I'm a little confused as this is posted in the guide to the business career... yet this goal is for the active detective career that came with Get To Work. So... I'll link you to Carl's guide for that career. Basically by going to work actively with your sim and completing the daily tasks.

Thanks for the reply. I am confused as well because I have not been able to find an answer to my question. I do not have Get to Work and this is the closest thread to what I have that I have found.

Admin
Playalotsays...
I'm really stumped to which career it could be. Unsure As the only career that has that name and work task is the detective career at level 9. But.. you would need Get To Work for that even to be an option.

As of writing this on 21st of October, it seems that the Invest in Stocks interaction is bugged. The pop-up says that I received a good return on my investment (§5,000), but what I receive is somewhere between §1,000 and §2,000. I have not been able to determine if there is a specific condition that causes this, but I have reported it to EA. Let's hope that they'll fix it.

My sims was in business, but he also had the genius trait so he would get a +1 focus moodlet more often than he got the boring paperwork moodlet from filling out reports.

I don't know why or how, but when I put the chair and desk together (The ones you get from the career), my sim won't sit down in it. I know it's not placing because i've tested that, and the only way he can sit at it is if the computer's not at the desk. Also every single other chair works just fine with the desk. I know it's late but it'd be great if you replied.

There is a bug with the Executron Executive Desk Throne so it just simply doesn't work in many games right now.
There is an open bug report if you want to add a 'me too'.

You need the Expansion Pack 'Get To Work' to have those active careers in your game. (Doctor, detective, scientist). The Business career came in a free patch so ensure your game is up-to-date through your Origin client.

I would have like to go through this career from the beginning so I made him quit his job and I re applied to the same career. He is start his first day job as a ceo and not a mail room technician. He jumped a few stages. How can I reset this career form him to zero and start from the bottom and work him up to the top. please help.

You won't be able to get him back to L1 as he was already passed the level where the career branches. You'll only ever be able to get him back to that point. So to get point keep taking the career and quitting.
