    A lot of people say writing is the most profitable career, but honestly, in my experience it’s simply the easiest to get off the ground, if you invest time in boosting certain stats as a musician, and also have the Late Night expansion so you can access the subways, you can earn loads of money at a much faster rate, since the amount of money you get from tips scales with the number of times you’ve started the "perform song" interaction, so it can scale to make more in a few hours than what authors can make in a week.

    Also, while not technically having career equivalents, the hidden werewolf skill you gain from hunting collectibles as a werewolf sim is extremely profitable at max level, as you can get loads of rare metals and gems which you can then refine for even more money, dogs are actually even more profitable as they can find space rocks which can be worth up to hundreds of thousands of simoleans up front if they’re the largest type of rock, only down side is things that your pets find won’t contribute towards your sim’s collection skill challenges or journal. Also martial artists who have completed the feat of breaking 150 boards have the ability to break space rocks that have a high chance of dropping the extremely valuable Tiberium gems at a fairly reliable rate as well as every other kind of gem in the game.

    There’s also an exploit which allows you to infinitely get resources and collectibles from a shining hole created by a miner, as well as many skills related to crafting and art having values that scale both with time and how many times a sim has created specific kinds of paintings, sculptures, etc.

    i think gardening is the most profitable, i know its not a career but kind of like stay at home, officially unemployed, but for aprox. 8 hours of work a day i can get around 14k per day which is just under 100k per week, and you can have as many plants as you want and work 16 hours a day if u need the money. i usually had just a plantation 🙂 of garlic which gives you 240 per plant and 2 money trees around 3.5-4k for both per day. if u manage a whole plantation of money trees you could earn over 100k per day for less then 8h of work.. the only downside to gardening is, if you dont tend the garden every day your plants will die sooner, with writting or hacking for ex. you dont have that problem..

  19. Crimson305 on June 16, 2022 at 3:17 am

    all careers can be high paying, you just have to keep the job forever and do stuff to get performance rate high. which gives you promotions.

  20. Jeezits on June 16, 2022 at 3:17 am

    You can also get an astronaut (10 military career) with the traits workaholic,ambitious,artistic,perfectionist,and bookworm then you go to work as normal but when you come back (you need to write 2 sci fi 2 humor 2 romance 2 mystery2 dramas)there is a very high paying book that you can write which requires you to write all of those books or you could stick to romance and whenever you finish your book paint a large painting or 2 then get on your computer and work from home you should get a lot of raises and quite a lot of money

  21. RazzaldG on June 16, 2022 at 3:19 am

    My character is a gardener and with 28 money trees will make $50k per day

  22. Marlou Frias on June 16, 2022 at 3:19 am

    Motherlode is the highest paid aha

  23. Dorian Barber on June 16, 2022 at 3:20 am

    Painting, makes like $2000 a day.
    2 days if you slack a bit but that’s fine.

  24. Sam Ad on June 16, 2022 at 3:21 am

    This shit 720 so issa lie

  25. uMad bro on June 16, 2022 at 3:22 am

    Banana CreamPie XDDDDDDDDDDDD

  26. kadindarklord on June 16, 2022 at 3:23 am

    One: Masterpiece books pay more than Romance. (pretty sure 25 books is what you need for it.) But it’s also the longest at 2000 pages.

    Two: Whilst I think I can make a lot with a Writer, I find the Super Agent branch of the Police department can pay more out. My Sim’s wife (without a degree.) earns about 21k+ per day at this moment for four days of work. With a Degree she’d earn more. If I also wanted to, I could make sure she got raises each work shift. My sim has a Technology degree and he works in the Forensics department. He’s getting up there, but only about 15k per day for two extra hours of work.

    Three: People say that the military pays more, but any career can match the military’s earnings for one day with raises. If I wanted to, my sims would.

  27. Angel on June 16, 2022 at 3:23 am

    Actor can reach 20k per week, he can get some more from paintings. Movie Director can reach 21k per week plus money from writing. The only one who can make more is resort owner, but if i recall its not acual job and you can be resort owner and have still your main job. So like Director/Actor with wirithing/painting + resort owner, make loads of money.

  28. Pagatryx on June 16, 2022 at 3:23 am

    Inventor <3, looking in bins for scrap has a chance of finding tiberium, 1 tiberium gem can make you around 120k, pretty rare though but since you can get that much money day one it can be pretty worthwhile

  29. Zachary Tremblay on June 16, 2022 at 3:25 am

    "The Life of a Porn Star" lmao

  30. Wrenth Davis on June 16, 2022 at 3:25 am

    (With Ambitions content also) My sim makes $140,000 a week from real estate/ properties.
    Other than that another good way to make money is by taking the business career, going to level 10 (power broker) then holding meetings back to back constantly.

  31. Brian on June 16, 2022 at 3:26 am

    "Juicy Meat", "Long John", "Slim Jim" lol

  32. Ayden on June 16, 2022 at 3:26 am

    Vice President pay a good amount also

  33. Lloyd hembury on June 16, 2022 at 3:28 am

    Just saying. Once you reach 25 novels made, you can create "masterpieces" worth a lot more than romances

  34. Furious Gamer on June 16, 2022 at 3:29 am

    Not bad

  35. H4X4TBFD on June 16, 2022 at 3:31 am

    Why he censored the skill progress? 1:06

  38. Eyes of a Tragedy on June 16, 2022 at 3:37 am

    I always play writer sims because I want to be a writer myself. And I end up going into the romance genre. My sims start off working a part time job and then spend most of her free time refining the writing skill. I don’t even write a novel until that skill is maxed out since you need maxed writing in order to access the romance genre. It’s insane how quickly they can amass a fortune in a short time. You can also buy rewards that help towards making more money more efficiently. The only thing that does better than romance is to unlock writing masterpieces. They take a lot longer to finish but the payout is enormous.

    The only thing I dislike about writing in the sims 3 are the payments per chapter. But nodding the game for me is off-limits because even just a few mods causes ridiculous lag in my game. From waiting through the loading screens to freezes while the open world configures the rest of the population, to lots loading their objects and textures and sims driving on top of water because the car moves faster than bridges load. As aggravating as a vanilla game can be, the lag is far worse. So I chose a lesser aggravation over a bigger aggravation. But I still get annoyed all to hell every time I see that pop up about how much a sim is being paid per chapter. Especially when writing short things like poetry and fiction novels. I hate that feature so damned much

  39. Granma Phil on June 16, 2022 at 3:38 am

    The miner

  40. FullblownNajerAlert on June 16, 2022 at 3:38 am

    If you reach master painter and level 10 painter career you get a call from the city to make 15 paintings and bring it to them. I did that and got about 750,000 simoleans just from that alone. And when I became a write made about 150k a week from royalties. It was amazing!

  41. LÖViZ on June 16, 2022 at 3:38 am

    My current sim makes over 9K/day in doc career (sims 3) needs oly logic skill… 😀

  42. Cortney on June 16, 2022 at 3:40 am

    Team Owner in University gets like $9,000 a week

  43. Danny devito fan on June 16, 2022 at 3:43 am

    1:16 why did you block that out?

  44. Alan Brough on June 16, 2022 at 3:44 am

    in criminal you can steal anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. John Irby on June 16, 2022 at 3:45 am

    Sports writing is the most money you can possibly make of any career or trait. With acclaimed author you can get $5,000 royalty checks and write 3 a day. For the time spent it is the most profitable.

  46. Butt Mun on June 16, 2022 at 3:47 am

    my sims earn 5000+ simoleon from each painting. 2 paintings each day

  47. Nur Syafierra Liana on June 16, 2022 at 3:47 am

    If I quit my job after reaching the top level in that job/career,and after a while I change my mind to work in my previous job that I quit,will my position in that job affected?
    Will I start from the bottom again?

  48. Icey x on June 16, 2022 at 3:48 am
