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.
So with all the hype from their teachers over their future careers, my teens have been wondering what they want to do. So I set up a series of Apprenticeships for them to help them decide!

Now the Apprenticeships are simply teen careers but pay higher than the Saturday Jobs, owing to the fact they attend these apprenticeships after school hours every weekday. So these are definitely for your studious, academic types.

You will need the Nraas Careers Mod for these Apprenticeships to show up. They're compatible with patch 1.67 and 1.69.

This pack has 10 Apprenticeships available for your teens and they all promote into a full time career. Four of them promote into Base Game careers; the other six promote into my custom careers. I'll specify further below.

*How The Promoting Works*

When your teenage Sim ages up while employed in an Apprenticeship, they will appear to stay in the apprenticeship. In order for them to get into the "Adult" career, your Sim needs to apply for the job via the Rabbithole, or on the newspaper or computer, as normal. They will appear to only be in level one of the "Adult" career when they join, but after a few moments, it will change to a different level.
If your Sim is at Level One in the apprenticeship, they will not gain any career advancement.
If your Sim is at Level Two in the apprenticeship, they will promote into Level 4 in the "Adult" career.
If your Sim is at Level Three in the apprenticeship, they will promote into Level 6 in the "Adult" career.
Please don't ask me to change this! It's the way to code works in the Careers mod and I can't change it.
