Get promotions and unlock career items
Cheating your career in The Sims 4 can help you avoid the repetition of having to go through the same career over and over again. It is also possible to unlock items in Buy mode limited to Sims who have reached a certain career level. Here is a guide to cheating every career in The Sims 4:
To get started: open the console
Press Ctrl + Shift + C on your keyboard to open the command line - type testingcheats on to make sure any tricks you use work (some require it). After pressing Enter, this can be closed by pressing the control C key again or pressing Esc when it is in focus.
Unlock items in Buy mode
Bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement (Ignore Gameplay Unlock Right All Run Together) will have the off build / purchase requirements such as high end easels, career specific computers and furniture which cannot be purchased without having a high tier in a career. These items are typically offered for free when a Sim is promoted to a certain career (found in the family inventory) but can be purchased (usually at a premium price).
