The Sims 4: Criminal - promotion, working hours, earnings Sims 4 Guide, tips

Last update: Wednesday, March 30, 2022

Don't want your Sim to leave the house too often? If so, tech guru will be the ideal career for you. Your Sim can focus on software development or playing video games for money. On this page of The Sims 4 guide, you will learn how to get a promotion quickly and how much a tech guru earns.

General information

During this career you will spend your entire time using a computer - The Sims 4: Criminal - promotion, working hours, earnings - Careers / jobs tracks - Sims 4 Guide

During this career you will spend your entire time using a computer. You need to develop your Programming skill and one of this career's branches also requires the Video Gaming skill. You need to go to your work with the Focused emotion. After the sixth level you will be able to choose between two branches: the E-Sport Gamer Branch (A) and the Start Up Entrepreneur Branch (B).

The basic income related to these two branches is pretty much similar and is close to 7800 Simoleons. The E-Sport Gamer Branch (A) requires you to develop the additional Video Gaming skill. Because of that the Start Up Entrepreneur Branch (B) is much easier since you have to focus only on one skill which is the Programming. The B branch also allows you to increase your income thanks to the royalties which you will earn by writing new programs and games. Also the time which you have to spend in work is very short (close to fifteen hours per week). All these things make the branch B the better one.

Promotion

You need to go to work with the Focused emotion - The Sims 4: Criminal - promotion, working hours, earnings - Careers / jobs tracks - Sims 4 Guide

You need to go to work with the Focused emotion. The best way to accomplish that is to spend about 2 hours right before your work playing chess (click on a chessboard and choose the "Think about moves" and then "Play"). You also need to spend some time using a computer every day (you can play, chat, write, program and so on). If you will consider what is needed to be promoted on the second rank in this career than your next actions will be obvious. Spend few hours playing some video games (click on a computer and choose the "Play video game" option). Once you will become the Quality Assurance (2) you will have to develop your Programming skills to the 2nd level what you will accomplish if you will learn programming for four hours. Just click on your computer and choose the "Learn programming" option.

Becoming a Code Monkey (3) will provide you a gift which will help you to stay focused - a Computer Hard Drive which you can install on your desk with a computer (dont forget to turn on the aura - click on a Hard Drive and choose an adequate option) - The Sims 4: Criminal - promotion, working hours, earnings - Careers / jobs tracks - Sims 4 Guide

You can learn Programming from books or from the "Learn programming" option on your computer (what is the better choice since it will also fulfill your daily task). To complete the second task you need to click on a computer and choose the "Program..." option and then select the "Write a plugin" option. It will take a few moments although it will help you complete your quest and also you will earn some Simoleons.
