Previously at Los, we had a hobby focus and had a lot of Grilled Cheese. Both Emilia and Patric earned hobby plaques, in Fitness and Art&Crafts respectively

That makes her happy and she claims a secondary aspiration of Family.

7677 No job

Berit still has no luck

This is one of the few things The Sims 2 messed up: The more expansions you have, and thus the more different careers, the harder it gets to actually get into one. So you basically pay to make the game harder for yourself. That was probably not intentional from the developers.

I agree. One thing I do like in Sims 3 is that they made it so your sims can just go get whatever job they want right away without having to wait for it to turn up in the paper/computer.

As I said below I like that better too, even though it's not realistic - it doesn't work that way in Sweden at least :)

It is a shame your sims can't go to SimNorway (Simway?) for a few years when they can't find a job at home. Next time you should pick a border town. ^_^ Swedish workers are quite popular here in Norway!

That's very true. Maybe I could have the bulletin bord in the border Town. THAT would be realistic. Just that the jobs from the board should be better paid too :)

There is (or used to be) a downloadable bulletin board for Sims 2 where sims could find all jobs. You could for instance make a community lot where people would go to look for jobs. Unfortunately I believe it is against the rules for the Prosperity challenge.

That works better in S3, where you can go to the workplace and apply. On the other hand, that is not very realistic either - at least not in Sweden :)

I don't think I need to say that I cheat a lot when it comes to getting my sims a job - after all I'm playing with the game instead of playing it. ;) But then I actually let them work on their careers without any more help from me, but it takes time to both skill and get a lot of friends. As I have had this tendency to start over my hoods repeatedly, not only have few first generation sims ever reached the end of their lives, no one has ever reached the top of their career either. There are a lot of "firsts" awaiting me still after over five years of playing.

Uni has helped a lot to help my sims reach TOC. Nowadays it's usually a walk in the park :)

The job search can be a pain sometimes, but it's actually very realistic to me. I kind of like that fact in the game. You can put them into something else and try to continue to find the job in the desired career (something that happens here all the time) or you can just keep searching and try to stretch money (also realistic.) :)

Ususally the sims have enough Money, unless they're first generation on the lot, and I let the stay unemployed, but otherwise they have to do something else of course :)
