All The Sims 4 career paths are largely balanced to be the same mix of hard work as you grind your skills levels, balance your mood and showing up on time to reach the top tier levels of earning. There are ways to increase the speed, using perks or cheats to maintain a happy mood, but you still need to show up every working day. Because of that here are some of the salaries you can expect for top tier career positions to help you maximise your take home:

  • Astronaut - Interstellar Smuggler: 413 simoleons per hour
  • Tech Guru - Start Up Genius/Entrepreneur: 516 simoleons per hour

It's worth mentioning that as well as cash, following the career paths unlocks exclusive social interactions, like bragging about your startup, items for your home, and even whole rooms.

But even if the perks can't tempt you to a 9-5, one way to grind out cash in The Sims is to invest in an easel and get busy with a paintbrush. Small paintings offer the best return on investment, and if you stick to one style and keep painting them over and over, your skill level will increase and your paintings will sell for more. If you really want to commit, make sure your Sim is in the creative mood by taking a 'Thoughtful Shower' first.
