IT Career

I bring you an IT Career, requested by my Mum! For this career to show up in game, you’ll need Twallan’s Careers Mod:

Patch 1.29 ~ Phase Nine
Patch 1.31-1.36 ~ Phase Ten
Patch 1.38-1.39 ~ Phase Eleven
Patch 1.42-1.48 ~ Phase Twelve
Patch 1.50 ~ Phase Thirteen
Patch 1.55-1.57 ~ Phase Fourteen
Patch 1.63 ~ Phase Fifteen

Only the Base game is needed for this career to work but it will work with any combination of Expansion and Stuff packs.
It was made with patch 1.42 and works on patches 1.42-1.63 and should work on all patch levels, although if it doesn’t, please let me know.
The career is written in English, Polish, Spanish, Dutch and Brazilian Portuguese (Thanks to Monika, Sims Geek, Denise and vini for the translation!) and currently doesn’t support any other translations. I’ll include translation instructions at the end.
The career is based at the Business and Journalism offices. It has ten levels and focuses on the Handiness, Logic and Charisma skills.
There are uniforms for all ten levels. You can also 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 🙂
Right now, there are no opportunities. I am going to be attempting this soon, so watch this space!
There is one custom skill, Tinker with Computers, which focuses on the Handiness skill.
Career Levels
1. Post Room Clerk ~ The company postman. All the post that comes to the company is sorted and distributed to the appropriate departments and now you’re that person. It’s not much of a job and the pay isn’t wonderful, but it’s certainly a start. Start tinkering with your computers at home to build on your Handiness skill and you’ll be ready for that first promotion.
Hours: 9.00am ~ 3.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
2.  Data Inputer  ~ This may sound monotonous and you’re probably right. But every piece of data that comes to the company must be inputted into the system and that’s where you come in, as a Data Inputer!
Hours:  9.00am ~ 3.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
3. Systems Analyst ~ As a Systems Analyst, you make sure the computer systems actually work. So if there’s a problem with the system, it’s up to you to locate it and make sure it gets sorted as soon as possible if you’re to climb any higher on the IT ladder.
Hours:  9.00am ~ 3.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
4. Project Manager ~ So, your team has been given a project and it’s up to you to oversee it’s productivity. If any member of your team starts slacking, it’s your job to make sure they pull their weight and get the project finished!
Hours:  9.00am ~ 3.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
5. Tech Support ~ If any of the departments have a problem with the computers, they call to the Tech Support department to fix those problems. So you’d better have high handiness skill if you’re going to keep this job!
Hours:  8.00am ~ 6.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
6. Head of Department ~ The department is now yours. You have to make sure those underlings do their jobs properly and that your department is by far the most efficient in the company. So work that charisma skill and that promotion will be yours.
Hours:  10.00am ~ 4.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

7. Senior Department Manager ~ So, you’re the manager of one of the Senior Departments? Well done you! Keep your charismatic charm sharp and keep up a good relationship with your coworkers and that next promotion should be within easy reach.
Hours:  10.00am ~ 4.00pm
Days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

8. Programmer ~ You’re the brains behind the shiny new programmes that everyone wants to buy. This is a challenging position and really taxes your brain but you’re smart, you should excel at this job!
Hours:  12.00pm ~ 5.00pm
Days: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

9. Developer ~ As a Developer, you work with the Programmers to test out their new programmes and software and assist with the research and implementation of ideas within the software projects. This is an important position and one where you are directly involved.
Hours:  12.00pm ~ 5.00pm
Days: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday
10. Managing Director ~The company is now yours! You’ve worked for years in front of a computer screen to reach this moment and here it is! You’ve acquired a good name for yourself and now all that’s left is to bask in the glow of your success and accomplishments.
Hours:  11.00am ~ 5.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
I’m not fluent enough in any other languages to translate, so if you’re interested in translating this career into your language, then please download this Language Strings file and open the file up in Notepad.
<STR>Translate This Text</STR>
Do that for the entire file, then email me your translation to: and let me know which language you’re translating to. 🙂
The career works for me but if you have any issues, please don’t hesitate to let me know and I’ll do my best to sort it as quickly as possible.

    Hello MissyHissy and thank you for your all your career mods 🙂

    I want to report a problem with IT and Modelling careers:

    After getting a promotion -Level 5 in IT career and 8 in Modelling-, my sims skills dissappear; the skills panel looks empty. They can’t raise their skills either, ErrorTrap resets them everytime they try. This happened with old and new games in different towns with different sims. Resigning and getting the job back fixes the issue temporary, but it keeps happening when the sims get promoted.

    I’ve checked all the Mods/CC I use for conflicts, compatibility and corruption problems, but everything looks OK. I noticed somebody else had a similar issue with Mage career; it was related with the skills name. Both Modelling and IT careers require charisma skill, maybe it has something to do with it?

    The info:
    Patch: 1.67;
    NRaas Careers version: 86, Phase 15;
    EP: All EP
    Language: English

    Thank you for your help. Sorry about my broken english 🙂 still learning

      Hi there! Thanks for reporting! There was a minor typo in both careers that affected the skills. I’ve updated them, so feel free to re-download and they should be fixed! 😀

    It works, thank you!! 🙂

  3. SnowCat says:

    Would it be possible to make a version using Arsil’s programming Skill?
    Thank you anyway you are doing a great job with those careers =)

    do u think u can tie ur careers with degrees

    • missyhissy says:

      This isn’t possible to do within the actual mod – this is an update that is being considered within NRaas Careers. So at the moment, I’m afraid it’s not possible.

  5. Kristin says:

    everytime my sim wants to go to work, he’s not going and it says ‘no work today’ this is so annoying 😦 every other of your careers work well!

  6. missyhissy says:

    Have you tried getting your sim to quit the career and then rejoin? If that doesn’t work, try redownloading the career.

  7. Kristin says:

    Yes yes yes! I googled and this was the problem! Stupid carrier outfit! Thanks for your help ❤️

    Missy, the IT career is great especially since I’m in IT. Would it be possible, or how can I change it, to make it be available at any business, not just the business center. Everyone has an IT department now and I happen to work for a hospital. So, being able to have my sim work in IT at the hospital would be super realistic. 🙂

    • missyhissy says:

      Hi there,
      Unfortunately, the careers have to be linked to one rabbithole. However, you can change it yourself for your own use. Open up the IT career in s3pe and edit the file. In there, you’ll find an option that says BusinessAndJournalism. Change the ‘BusinessAndJournalism’ to ‘Hospital’ and you’ll be good to go 🙂 Let me know if you have any problems 🙂

      • Ira says:

        You’re the best! That works just fine. I guess it wouldn’t be practical to have a Career.IT package for every business. Sounds like it might be more complicated than just creating duplicate files with different names in the rabbit hole section. I’m fine with changing it to Hospital.

        Thanks again, much appreciated.
