"sigh"just had my sims age up and only halfway through one career each! They keep getting distracted with the joy of living and meeting basic needs! I will be lucky to get these ones through ONE career each!
Be interested in hints and tips from the GOOD gamers further into the challenge! :'(

I'm finished.

Probably an awful score but if I post first at least I can say I was at the top of the leader board for a short while!

I capped 2 jobs = 2400
1 other career to l6 = 200
23 rewards = 1+1.15

(2400+200)x2.15=5590

...If my maths is right. Please correct if wrong.

Good luck to everyone else  :D

It's pretty hard to max out careers, it takes ages to give them a promotion! even when I think I've met all their needs and such, it still takes a looong time. I'm really curious about my final score. I bet it won't be as good as the other challenge :P

That... was a painful experience XD  My score is abysmal.  Don't worry December, you're still on top XD

Careers capped: 1 * 1200= 1200      
Careers L6+: 4*200= 800      
Rewards: 16* .05= .8 +1= 1.80      
1200+800=2000      
2000*1.80= 3600      

If I'm incorrect in my math, please let me know.

2 job caps = (1200 x 2) = 2400
6 - 9 = none (got them both to level 5  :( was so close to lvl 6! :P)
24 rewards x 0.05 = 1.2. Final multiplier =  1.00 + 1.20 = 2.20

My total: 2400 x 2.20 = 5280

A bit dissapointing to be honest  :P I had some trouble maxing out the careers. Sometimes their progress even went backwards  :o Still had a lot of fun though!

Good Job everyone that has finished so far!

UGh, I hate careers in Sims 4! They are so frustrating! I'm only half way thru my sims lives (just became adults) since I can't get motivated to play. I'm glad we have a while to complete this challenge, cause I am just dragging my feet. Sigh.

MissZoef, My sims progress reset, too. A couple times. Right when she was at the verge of maxing it out... bam... reset to light green.... I'm frustrated.

Yeah it is super annoying. Although it makes for quite a challenge  :P One of the things that makes it also more difficult is those screens popping up where you have to choose between two things. Those things can really backfire. And the resetting yeah.. ah well. Still enjoyed it  :) But I must say that I liked the sims 3 jobs better.

Okay I had to have something to do while sick.

I ended with:

Career Cap:  1200 x 2 = 2400

6-9: 0

Rewards: 16 x 0.05 = .80 

Final Multiplier  = 1 + .80 = 1.80

Total =  2400 x 1.80 = 4320

Might have been better if I wasn't sick. But I'll take it.

Finished!

Careers Capped:
2 x 1200= 2400   

Careers L6+:
None

Rewards:
25 x 0.05
= 1.25 +1
= 2.25

Score:
2400 x 2.25
= 5400

This one was so frustrating at times! I was so close to having their second careers at level 7! :( 

Definitely a really fun challenge though ^_^

Careers Capped:
2 x 1200= 2400   

Careers Level 6+:
2 (Level 6) = 400

Rewards:
30 x 0.05
= 1.50 +1
= 2.50

Score:
2800 x 2.50
= 7000

EDIT:
Just realized this morning that two of the careers I picked had the same first reward. So my score should actually be 7000! Sorry about that!

Well I'm finally finished! And, yep, still not liking careers in SIms 4.

Careers Capped:
1200 x 2 = 2400

6-9:
0

Rewards:
25 x 0.05=1.25
1.25=1.00=2.25

2400 x 2.25= 5400

I was so close to getting both my sims to level 6 in their 2nd careers. Ryan needed about 30 more minutes of work time to get promoted and Tiana needed another day. :( So close!

Careers Capped:
2 @ 1200 = 2400

6-9:
3 @ 200 = 600

25 @ .05 =  2.25

3000  X 2.25 = 6750

Finally done!  :D

Career Cap - 2 careers maxed = 2400 points

6 - 9 - level 8 x 2 = 600x2 = 1200 points

Rewards - 48 = 48x.05 = 2.4 (final multiplier is 3.4)

Total Score: (2400+1200)x3.4 = 12240 points

So, I am trying this challenge. But I have to say, the patch broke the careers. And as fun as this idea is, it's sad because it's just not really working right. I have not used any mods or cc in my game. It's a new game file, because it's required of the challenge.
Also, based on the bug forum that Crinrict tracks, i'm not the only one who is having problems with it.
Anyhow, still planning to finish my try, but it's kind of frustrating.

Well, in my opinion "breaking" something means it cannot actually be done and be used. The patch made leveling careers much more time consuming, agreed. That does not mean it's broken. It's harder and more challenging.

Exactly what is wrong with your file?  Is it something that prevents you from leveling careers?  If it is because of the nerf (slow leveling), then Metro is right, it is not broken, just harder.  If it is something that breaks the game and prevent you for getting promoted, please PM the team with the details.

I do wonder whether the fact that you sometimes don't make any progress or that your progress goes backwards is intended by ea. I can see why someone would consider it 'broken'. Maybe someone here can enlighten me on that subject. Is this indeed how they intended it? Even when you work hard and are in the 'very' right mood?

No, no specifics will be given out in this thread while the event is live. However, you are free to ask elsewhere on the forum.

Career Cap- 4= 4800
level 6+-lvl7= 400
Rewards-33 rewards= 16.5

So if my maths is correct
Final Score-85,800

It's not correct. ;) Your multiplier = 33 X .05 = 1.65 + 1.00 = 2.65

4800 + 400 X 2.65 = 13,780
