Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
As requested by joninmobile, here is a one-tile version of my Job Seeking Noticeboard.

Back in the days of the base Sims 2 game, there were 10 job tracks and searching for your dream job in the Newspaper or on a computer generally only took a couple of days before the random choice of 3 or 4 jobs respectively, came up with your choosen career track.

These days with all the new Expansion Packs (and additionally career mods), there are twice as many jobs to choose from and with still only 3 or 4 jobs a day, it can take a week sometimes before your career track appears.

The Job Seeking Notice board allows you to select any job directly without trawling through lots of jobs you are not interested in. The job is offered to you in exactly the same way as from a newspaper or computer (using the online job finder), that is, you are offered a job at the appropriate level (based on previous jobs, e.g. as a teen; degree or lack of it; pregnancy) and it checks if you already have a job that you really want to change to this new one. It will not allow you to waltz into the job centre and demand a level 10 job in any career - that's just not true to life. It works for Adult Jobs, Teen/Elder Jobs and Pet Jobs, and for Maxis Careers and Custom Careers. Note: Elder Pets and Spectral Cats (new in Apartment Life) cannot get jobs - just as with other job offering mechanisms.

It works in exactly the same way as the two-tile version, so please have a read of that thread for all the main details.

Although matching, the recolours are not repositoried (different layout for the smaller area) so this is a completely stand-alone object and does not require the two-tile board to work. You can have one or the other or both as you wish.

I have categorised the notice board as Decorative/Misc to match the open/close shop sign.

There are recolours for Sim Jobs, and Pets Jobs in both English and Simlish, to match the two-tile version.



Cheers
Mog
