The business career in The Sims 4 is one of the basic careers that is included with the Base Game and is one of the least fun to do (at the beginning, at least!). This career path wasn’t even included in the original release of the base game, but was released in an early patch.

The main benefit of working in the business career in the game is that your sim will never have to work weekends, so it’s great if you’re more of a family player and will have children at home. It’s also nice because you’re on a more consistent work schedule than a lot of other careers that tend to jump around.

When working through the business career before you choose a specific branch, you will have the daily task to fill out reports. This takes a few hours and can be a real pain, but it’s a relatively easy daily task.

Synergy! Efficiency! Planfullness! If the mere sound of these industry buzzwords gets you buzzing, then a career in business might just be the right fit for you!

Aspirations for the Business Career

There is no specific aspiration that will help you with the business career, but there are a few that you could work through during the process. The first is the Fabulously Wealthy Aspiration, this one is good because the business career pays relatively well when you get up high and can be beneficial to this aspiration.

You could also do the Friend to the World aspiration since business focuses strongly on charisma and this aspiration is all about building up your relationships to gain charisma.

Traits for the Business Career

There are no traits that directly benefit you while working in the business career, however, there are a few that can help you get through the career with less struggles. The first would be the genius trait as it helps your sims gain the Logic skill and maintain focus.

The next, could be self-assured, as self-assured sims are often more confident and this can help your sims work performance.

Management Career Branch

Should everyone be laid off and replaced by robots? Should the company logo be redone to include more llamas? These are the types of critical decisions you would be making should you choose to venture down the path of management.

The daily task of the management branch is to make business calls. There are two possible outcomes of these calls: If your sim’s business calls go well, they will get a confident moodlet that will last a few hours, if the call goes bad, they will get an embarrassed moodlet.

If your sim decides to choose the management career branch of the business career, there will be a strong focus on the Charisma Skill. You’ll need to max out your charisma skill if you wish to complete the entire career branch. You’ll also need to get your logic skill to level 8 if you’re looking to become a business tycoon.

If you get to the top of the management branch of the business career you’ll be able to make §15,000 each week which is a really awesome salary for your sims 4 family.

Management Branch Benefits

As with all careers in The Sims 4, the management branch of the business career has some cool unlockable objects that are given to you when you get promoted. First, you’ll unlock one clothing item, the senior management suit. You’ll unlock one interaction, to make business calls.

Finally, you’ll unlock four objects. The executron executive desk throne, executron bookshelf, the executive guest chair, and the executron executive desk.

If you get to the top of the investor branch of the business career, you’ll be able to make around §13,000.

Investor Branch Benefits
