Update available for (20th anniversary patch) !

New alternate versions available :
I've uploaded a Business Owner and a Restaurant version, which works just like the Self-Employment one, but with more appropriate icons and titles so the career reflects what your Sims is doing. You can use these at the same time as the Self-Employment.

Add a new Self-Employment Career with only one level : Self-Employed.

This career is intended mainly to fill the career panel and when asking other Sims what their job is. This level has a one-hour work day because the UI needs it, but it's not paid, and you can miss it without any penalty. So you can role-play it as an administrative appointment or just ignore it.

Languages available
English, French, Portuguese, Russian, Traditional Chinese, Spanish, German, Polish, Dutch, Danish, Swedish

Is this supposed to just show up on the list of careers on the sim phone? It doesn't show up in my game.

Sorry for the bump, but I just wanted to say that even though the new name your career feature in the latest patch deprecates this mod, I want to thank you for making it.
