    ‘Realistic’ Careers, active or semi active:
    • Mountain Guide/ Scout Guide.
    • Forester.
    • Zoologist.
    • Professional musician/ rock star.
    • Professional Dancer/ Dance teacher.
    • Professional Boxer/ Wrestler.
    • (Car) Mechanic.

    ‘Alternative’ Careers, active or semi active:
    • Grim Reaper.
    • Monster Hunter.
    • Clairvoyant/ Psychic/ Medium.
    • Magician.

    And very little to no computer interactions. Most interactions should include the use of devices/ objects specific to that career.

    A few people have already commented this, but I would love to see Interior Design added into the game. In mid December, I will actually be graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Interior Design. :):)

    Not active:
    cleaning "lady"
    garbage "man"
    social worker
    post "man"
    delivery driver
    pastry cook/baker

    I agree with these, except I definitely don't want a butcher in my game. :#
    I just want more normal careers.

    I want to have a sim be a singer but not a rock star type. I'd rather they sing torch songs with a back up band. I'd like it to be a semi active career where you can actually set up places where they can sing for crowds. Better yet if we have couple dancing in game and they can sing at events and other sims can dance.
    Then I'd like a band that can play at events also especially if we could get ballroom dances.

    I want this SOOOOO much.

    Bands, singers, songwriters, costume designers/tailors and model. Like Get famous hardly gave us anything in terms of careers for fame.

    I miss my sims being a cult leader, in the sims 2 it had a cool outfit and the carpol was an helicopter.

    Illustrator and Psychic (I remember the Psychic career in Sims 1: Living it Up expansion pack). 🙂
    Also a magic related career like Town Healer or Shaman would be interesting.

    Firefighter! Firefighter! Firefighter!
    My main sim was one in the Sims 3 and I had a blast with that profession. I hate that there isn't a proper ACTIVE! firefighter career in the sims 4 :(
    I've also thought of a bunch of other careers I would like to see added to the game but most have already been mentioned by previous posters (I would prefer any and all as active non-rabbit hole):
    Stage Magician
    Wrestler (or pretty much any professional sports player – boxer, soccer player, basketball player, rugby player, tennis player, hockey player, volleyball player, etc. etc.)
    Ghost busters
    Pizza delivery guy (m/f)
    Mechanic/Handyman (m/f)
    Mailman (m/f)
    Archaeologist (let's put that skill to actual use)
    Fashion designer (it's like Nifty Knitting, but on steroids, not limited to just knitted/woolen cas items)
    Construction worker
    Farmer (would go nice with a farm pack, hint, hint, nudge, nudge, wink, wink)
    Maid (m/f)
    Tattoo artist
    Metal smithing/jewelry/glassblower
    And how about having all the stuff you can do in the Spa Day Game Pack be an actually active career? And not just a skill or a building you can visit as a 'customer'.

    I'm sure the hardy meat cleaver wielding people in the butcher profession aren't that easily offended by someone callously labeling their work not normal, or at the very least 'less' normal. :# But it's one of the oldest professions in the world, next to farmer, carpenter, and...

    Now that you made me think of it, I want a prostitution career as well.

    For one I'd just appreciate certain part time jobs to be actual jobs. Laborers, retail, fast food... these are full time jobs for a lot of people, especially laborers. There's very few realistic jobs when I go to create a family that's not very well off. I get that it's not very fun... but I often try to start with sims living more realistic lives then explore what would happen to them in a less realistic world, if that makes sense.

    That won’t happen in a Teen rated game, but if you’re a mod user...there may be something out there... ;)

    Zookeeper. I can think of tons of funny situations for a Sim in a job like that.

    Id like to see volunteer work. You can only donate to charity online but what about donating your time?

    Sims 5. Please be great.

    The ability to Volunteer comes with Parenthood. It’s a phone interaction which will then send your sim into a rabbit hole. These are the 5 activities:
    • Volunteer at a Bake Sale
    • Volunteer at a Beach Cleanup
    • Volunteer at a Nursing Home
    • Volunteer at a Soup Kitchen
    • Walk to Fight Disease

    Model, Singer, firefighter. I'd love the Grim Reaper career they wanted to do in Happy Haunts. I'd also love a matchmaker career. Maybe even a Ghostbuster career.
    I actually think The Sims 4 has the best career options of the series, and I think they've basically covered almost everything.

    All this plus architect or home designer.

    They should include create a career feature like creating your club system. Name any career, add any daily tasks.

    This would be awesome!

    So the more I play the more I can agree that I wish that we didn't have to do so much on the computer for our tasks.

    I just want more low-paying jobs. I don't like my sims to get too rich, since it's boring. I want the "part time jobs" to have a "full time" option, just poorly paid.

    i still want a singer that can sing solo or with a four piece band. and i want ppl to stop and watch 'em like they do when my piano plays the jazz number.

    the thing i dislike the most is collecting. example every spring they'd bring out easter eggs have an egg hunt. then they stopped. and they did that every fall with the holloween stuff. then they stopped. why? so now u have to cheat to collect those. so we stop collecting. its no longer fun or a challenge.
