Find an Internship


This mod was supposed to be much smaller than what it is now, so I apologize for the delay. I had a project that I had to work on, which took most of my time.


This mod will introduce internships into your game. The system Your sims can now find internships, apply there and work there for a certain amount of time. I felt like this was an important aspect of professional development, especially for your sims who have just graduated high school or university or are in the middle of college and would like some work experience.

I have a save where I didn't know what to do with my YA's who just graduated from college, and now I am glad I can find them up with an internship!


You can start finding internships by contacting the internship placement agency. You will find the menu on your phone in the work category. By clicking on "Go to Internship Agency," you be asked if you want to be a client.



By saying yes, you can the documents you will be asked to submit a few things. Once that is done you will be contacted by an agent. The agent will walk you through the next step.



Now the system I built for this internship mod is that you may want to be offered a job later after you are done with the internship or whatever other thing you are doing.


So the available internships are directly related to the in-game job. From all of the packs. Once you receive the call from your agent about a tailored list of internships being ready for you. You can pick one from the list.

Now this list is tailored to your sim in terms of skills or traits. If your sim has certain skills or traits that match a certain internship job, then they will be given the option to choose the internship.


For example, a sim with high mischief skills will be offered a criminal job internship or if they have evil or mean traits. A sim who is a genius might have the option to join a data scientist internship, but they won't get the medical internship option.


These are all of the internships you can choose from.

This is an example of a list that does not include all of the internships but ones tailored to a specific sim.



Once you pick an internship, you will choose a length that works for you. After this, your sim will go to an interview just to see if they are a good fit for the company. If they are, then they can start the internship.

You can click on start internship on the computer in the career menu. When you are about to start, you will be asked whether or not you want to choose a travel internship. I thought it would be a cool idea to add travel internships because it would be nice to have sims gone for a while and add some nuance to the story.

The way the travel internships work is that based on the length of time you chose, your sim will be gone for that time. Once the week, or 2 weeks or 4 weeks are over, they will come back home.

There are social interactions that may show up for you sim depending on the situation. So you should look out for those. For example, the farewell ones will only show up if your sim chose the travel internship. If your sim gets a job offer, an interaction for that will be available.

After your internship is over, both the travel internship and the home-based internship, you will be able to check if you have received a job offer.


You could not receive a job offer. You could also receive one. The job offers are also based on skill so if you suck at, let's say, programming, you are most likely not going to get the job.



If you do get the job offer, you can accept it, and you will start at a specific level based on what job it is.


Finally, there is a cheat menu. If you left-shift click on your sim and press cheatsiminfo you will find it. If you want to get an internship or a job offer immediately, you can use this method.


If you also want to complete an internship, you can do this. The option to apply for an internship is also in the cheat menu so if you do not want to go through the agency services you can skip it.



Important!

The mod is bgc, but the job offers aren't, seeing as they are part of certain packs. You can delete the files from the packs you do not own, and I believe it will be fine.


Questions and concerns you might have?

Is it BGC?

Yup just remove the files that require a pack you do not have from the folder. When you download the file you will understand the files you should delete.


The "Congratulate on job offer" interaction is bugging"

The animation I used was from Get Famous. I don't know how the game might interpret the animation with someone who. might not have GF. Please let me know if this is happening to you.


Why is the Dream Home Decorator Career not here?

I don't have DHD so I can't mod that pack.


Can we add custom careers?

If you have custom careers you want me to integrate you can tell me!


I'm experiencing some weird bugs!

Let me know, please. I dealt with a lot of files when creating this mod, so something might not work the way I wanted it to work so please let me know about that so I can fix it.


I have different questions about the mod.

Honestly, I don't blame you. I might not have explained everything too well, so if you have questions about something, let me know.


How to install the mod?

Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods <--- Unzip the file and make sure it's placed in this path.


What's next for the mod?

I don't know, 🤷‍♀️. But...if you have any suggestions, by all means, feel free to share!

I wonder if this mod could work together with The Job Finding mod by Zero Sims 4 mods?
