The Sims 4 Career Cheats
Getting Promotions and Unlocking Career Items
Cheating your Career in The Sims 4 may help you to avoid the repetition of going through the same career track again and again. It's also possible to unlock items in buy mode that are restricted to Sims who have achieved a particular career level. Here's a guide to cheating every career in The Sims 4:
Getting Started: Open the Console
Press Control + Shift + C on your keyboard to open the comamnd line - type testingcheats on to ensure any cheat that you use will work (some require this). After you hit enter, this can be closed pressing control shift C again or hitting Esc when it is in focus.
Unlock Buy Mode Objects
bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement (Ignore Gameplay Unlocks Entitlement all run together) will take the requirements off build/buy items such as high-end easels, computers, and career-specific furniture that cannot be purchased without having a high level in a career. These items are typically given free when a Sim is promoted in a given career (found in the family inventory) but can be purchased (usually for a premium price).
Type careers.promote x replacing x with the career of your choice. You can also hit up on the keyboard after you hit enter, and re-enter it a second time quickly. This is how you can go up multiple levels without re-typing it.

Younger Sims' schooling counts as a career for the purposes of cheating. Raise a Sim's grades with careers.promote gradeschool or careers.promote highschool. You can lower them as well with careers.demote gradeschool/highschool. If you have the Seasons Expansion, you can promote your child in the Scouting career as well, with careers.promote_scout. Players with Get Famous may try careers.promote dramaclub to raise their little one's rank in the new Drama Club feature.
