How do I Get Promotions Fast?

I need a sim to reach level 5 of the education career before he becomes an elder. He has 16 days until his birthday and he’s still at level 1. How do I get him 4 promotions in 16 days (including weekends)?

Update: According to my calculations, there are ten weekdays left before he becomes an elder, so I need to get one promotion every 2-3 workdays. I’m feeling really discouraged because it’s already been an entire work week and he didn’t get promoted the entire week.

    Hi :)
    Make sure they have the Skills and Friends they need, then send them to work either in a Great Mood (full needs) or Platinum.
    They can get platinum quickly - a great date will work the fastest because you can take them off lot and time stands still. :)

    You can "cheat" more days by sending sim to a vacation and use vacation time to improve skills and make friends. Sims don't age during vacations. Plus, after a vacation you can choose a "Industrious" benefit that increases job performance. That is of course if you happen to have Bon Voyage :)

    Use the thinking cap when skilling if your Sim is in the Yellow or Platinum aspiration level. This will increase their skill rate.

    Use the energizer as well if in the Yellow or Platinum aspiration level instead of caring for motives that take time to deal with such as hunger if there's no left overs or others to fix food and energy.

    Hmm... If I remember it correctly, you can't raise skills on community lots unless it's in the college neighborhood or it's hobby secret lot.

    If you don't have Bon Voyage, any community lot will do. Use the time there to make more friends. If you want to get skills up faster, fulfill as many wishes as you can until you have 16,000 points and get a Thinking Cap. Wearing this will make your sim learn skills much faster. Just make sure your sim has golden or platinum aspiration bar. And remember that wearing it 24 hours will wear it out and make it useless.
    You can never discover The Sims games 100%. Even when you think you know everything, the game manages to surprise you.
    That's why I do experiments in the game from time to time and tutorial videos on YouTube.
