    That is the better place to ask, but from experience can say that unless you actively make a change they will stay where they are.

    You simply have to follow one Sim to work. Others will go to work on their own. You can even choose to go with no one and the game will simply speed up while they are working until someone returns.

    Sims only change jobs by chance card in The Sims 1, there is no way to prevent it as far as I can remember other than staying at rank 9 instead of getting a promo. (Doesn't apply to Bustin Out or the console versions)

    Otherwise in TS2 they can only either get fired, or demoted. They won't change or quit without the Story Progression mod.

    Indeed.

    But I'm now thinking if it can also happen on console versions... Maybe something to find out!
    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.

    I'm not sure which game you mean. Because the links you provided are about TS4's careers. In TS2 Sims don't quit or change jobs unless you make them pick a different or call their work and quit if you don't want them to work anymore etc. Neither do they retire until you make them.

    Change job- look for one in the paper or on the pc and take it, the Sim will ask you if they should change the answer is yes.
    Quit Job_ call work/quit job.
    Top of career or aspiration, call work retire or quit job...elderly will be placed on part time schedules until you make them quit or retire.
