This download is a custom career. This means that you will need the NRaas Careers mod installed in order to use the download in your game.
*Updates*
18/11/2019 ~ Fixed the English strings for the Community Service 'job'. Please redownload if your game is in English!

I love my independent teens. They always want to get a job and pay for things themselves but I hate the thought of them struggling to catch up with their homework late at night.

So I did something about it. I created 12 Saturday Jobs for your teenage sims! These do not override any teen careers. There is also a bonus Community Service 'job' for your juvenile delinquents.

For these jobs to show up in game, you will need the Nraas Careers Mod.
These jobs were made with Patch 1.69 and are all in English and support translations in German, Russian, French, Dutch and Chinese. If you're interested in translating this career, there are instructions at the bottom of the page.

Most of the jobs are base game compatible, however a few do rely on expansions. I give details on each career below.
There are uniforms for each of the jobs. You can edit career outfits with Patch 1.31 and above, so I highly suggest using this feature to give your Sims a uniform of your own choosing.
There are no opportunities. These are considered Part-Time jobs and cannot have opportunities.

The Jobs

The jobs include:
  • Babysitting
  • Bartender
  • Hotel Attendant
  • Lifeguard
  • Modelling
  • Pharmacy Assistant
  • Retail Assistant
  • Stablehand
  • Theatre Attendant
  • Tutor
  • Veterinary Assistant
  • Waiter/Waitress
  • *Plus Bonus Community Service*
