This guide will cover all the details you need about the Freelancer career in The Sims 4, like its skills, traits, career levels, best mods, and cheats.

How to Become a Freelancer in The Sims 4?

Go to Find a Job on your phone to begin working as a Freelancer. Or you can choose the Find a Job option from the Career Panel in the bottom right corner.  You will see a set of careers here. Pick Freelancer and then choose an agency that will assist you in landing freelance gigs.

The options are available from which you can choose different skills for freelancing. These skills are

  • Freelance Programmer
  • Freelance Artist
  • Freelance Writer

All three Freelance Jobs need a computer. For the freelance artist, you’ll also need a digital sketchpad because they don’t utilize an easel and instead work with digital art.

Getting a Gig as a Freelancer

Every Sim day at 9 a.m., new Gigs are added. Go to the career panel in the lower right corner of the screen to pick a job for your Sim. You’ll notice your freelancing agency’s name and a little symbol that looks like a clipboard with a checkbox in the center that you may click.

From the pop-up menu, choose a job for your Sim. There will be a long list of jobs available. Few of these jobs will be greyed out since your Sim lacks the necessary skill level.

The title of the job, the amount of money you’ll make, the minimum level of expertise to accept the gig, and the deadline for the gig will all be displayed. You may utilize all of this data to decide as to which gig to accept.

Once you’ve decided on a position, you’ll see its prerequisites in your career panel, and you’ll have anything from 2-4 tasks to accomplish before the deadline. After you’ve chosen your gig, you may get started right away.

Completing a Gig as a Freelancer

Once your Sim has completed their job, go to their career panel to learn all you need to know. Like other professions, your total freelancing performance will be at the top.

After that, you’ll see the job title and when it’s due. Also, on the right side is a tiny garbage can where you may cancel the job if you no longer intend to pursue it or if it malfunctions for any reason.

Then you’ll see your assignments. When you hover your mouse over the job, the game will tell you how to do it.

The due date is vital to keep in mind so that you don’t submit your work late; however, you don’t have to wait until the deadline to submit it. You can submit the job as soon as you are done with it, even on the same day you selected it.

As a freelancer, you may take on as many tasks as you can accomplish and complete them one after another and earn a substantial sum of money.

Getting Work Rejected

The person you’ll be working for may dislike your work. Thankfully, you can just select the job in your collection and alter it before resubmitting it in the hopes that they would accept it and pay you.

To avoid getting your work rejected, you should prefer taking gigs that don’t require multiple works for one gig. For example, writing product slogans and marketing copy, which requires three separate write-ups and thus approvals. Instead, focus on gigs that have a single task and approval, as these are generally faster and easier to do, while paying better as well.

Ranking Up as a Freelancer

Like other professions in The Sims 4, the freelancing profession allows you to advance; however, it operates a little more than other careers. Your day-to-day activities as a freelancer will not change when you advance in level. You will continue to execute gigs in the same manner as previously, and your job title will remain the same.

On the other hand, ranking higher will result in a 10% rise in your earnings for each gig. When first level up in the game, you’ll receive a Supreme Freelance Award worth 500 simoleons that you may display on your wall.
