Now your teenage Sims can drop out of high school and get a real job. This mod is broken up into three parts: High School Dropout, Adult Jobs for Teens, and Adult Career outfit for Teen unlocks.

Updated for 1.36
Redownload and relpace old mods


New High School Dropout method
Due to the 1.30 update my old method of dropping out of school caused Last Exception errors. Luckily for all of us CardTaken has a quit school mod that still works with 1.30. Download Child and Teen can Quit or Rejoin School (NEW: No Auto Enrollment) (don't forget to click thanks) and remove any of my old No High School mods. Note that CardTaken's mod is in two parts a .package and a .ts4script and both are needed to work. Once installed select your teen and using their phone select Quit Job and select High School; or use the cheat careers.remove_career highschool



Adult Jobs for Teens


Install the "Telford - Adult jobs for Teens BASE GAME" package and your teens will be able to join all the base game careers in addition to the regular part time jobs. Be sure to also install one of the no high school mods and quit any part-time jobs your teens may already have.

Install "Telford - Adult jobs for Teens GET TO WORK" to unlock the Get to Work careers for your teens. This will allow your teens to join the Scientist, Medical and Detective careers introduced with the Get to Work expansion. This package only unlocks the Get to Work jobs and can be safely installed along with the above Adult Jobs for Teens packages. (Requires Get to Work)

Install “Telford - Adult jobs for Teens CITY LIVING” to unlock the City Living careers for your teens. This will allow your teens to join the Social Media, Critic or Political careers introduced with the City Living expansion. This package only unlocks the City Living jobs and can be safely installed along with the above Adult Jobs for Teens packages. (Requires City Living)




Adult Career Outfits for Teens


Some career outfits from Get to Work were not flagged for teen use, so for teens to wear the right outfits install the "Telford - Adult Jobs for Teens CAS overrides GET TO WORK 1.29" package. This mod fixes any CAS part not flagged for teen.

Base Game and City Living have all of the adult clothes already flagged for teens and does not require a mod. The old CAS override mods causes problems with sims changing into random career clothes and have been removed, if you experience this problem remove the Base game and City living mods and update the Get to work CAS mods.





Install Instructions
These mods have been updated to work with version 1.30. Some of the mods require expansion packs to work, check the mod description before installing.
To work properly at least two packages need to be installed:

1) Install CardTaken's mod Child and Teen can Quit or Rejoin School (NEW: No Auto Enrollment)

2) Install any of:
  • Telford - Adult jobs for Teens BASE GAME
  • Telford - Adult jobs for Teens GET TO WORK
  • Telford - Adult jobs for Teens CITY LIVING

3) If Adult jobs for Teens GET TO WORK is installed also Install:
  • Telford - Adult Jobs for Teens CAS overrides GET TO WORK 1.29

Hi i downloaded both "out of school" and "adult jobs 4 teens" base game mods and they dont work in game, can't get a job with phone,comp, nothing, i dont have any other job related mods (only a few create-a-sim mods) so not sure what could be a conflict... and i heard that script mods shouldn't be unzipped, so i didnt unzip the one with .ts4script ,only put it in mods folder... can U tell me which exactly should i unzip and which only to put ? Thanks.
PS nevermind i can using cheats :D

Thanks, Telford, for making this mod. However, it seems to no longer work with Cats and Dogs. My version is 1.43.14.1220. The Seasons expansion pack is also due out. I would be very grateful if this mod could be updated to work with the latest versions. I have a particular storyline that badly needs the ability for a teen to get an adult career.

Is this mod compatible for the Seasons expansion pack? I really would like to see my teen sims being able to be a botanist or florist.

with this installed in the current latest version of sims 4 (1.44 i think we are up to?) my sims (townie or one i made myself) will not go to work automatically and i cant tell them to go to work cuz the interaction was not there at all. but if i simply remove the 4 files for adult jobs for teens (or whatever they are called) then everything is fine and all sims go to work like they should automatically or i can tell them to go to work ...

When I had this installed, I had issues making my sims go to work/school and my child/teen sims stopped being able to do their homework; they'd start glitching when I tried to make them.

Also hoping you will be able to update this for Get Famous before too long so teens can get in the movies too.
