This download is a custom career. This means that you will need the NRaas Careers mod installed in order to use the download in your game.
Update Log:
~ 25th November, 2021 ~ Added Spanish and Mexican Spanish translations.
~ 4th March, 2021 ~ Added Taiwanese translation.
~ 31st January, 2021 ~ Added Polish translation
~ 17th April, 2020 ~ Added German translation.

Some of my sims love their dive bars. Maybe a little too much and that's why this career is perfect for them! Introducing the Bartender Career!

This is another one of my older careers but has been updated and improved within the last several months. This does not override any career in game.

For this career to show up, you will need the Nraas Careers Mod.
This career was made with Patch 1.69 and is in English and supports translations in Portuguese (Brazilian and European), Dutch, Russian, French, German, Polish, Taiwanese and Spanish (Standard and Mexican). If you're interested in translating this career, there are instructions at the bottom of the page.

The career is based at the Bistro and has ten levels.
There are no uniforms for this career. You can edit career outfits with Patch 1.31 and above, so I highly suggest using this feature to give your Sims a uniform of your own choosing.
There are 5 Opportunities available.
Your Sim may receive a bonus on Snowflake Day if Seasons is installed.
There is no boss for level 10 of the career.
There are four custom tones; Talk to Customers, which builds the Charisma skill; Talk About Drinks, which builds the Mixology skill; Throw Out Rowdy Patrons (level 3 only), which builds the Athletic skill and finally, Restock the Bar (Level 4 only), which also builds the Athletic skill.
You will need Late Night for this career to work as intended.

Join Text ~ Do you love the night life? Do you enjoy the company of others? Can you stay up late and stand on your feet for hours? Do you love listening to other people's problems? Love drinking and making drinks for others to enjoy? Then why not be a Bartender?

The Levels

*Quick Note: The first two levels don't actually give you money - they take it. The reason for this is that they are not actual 'jobs' yet - it's a premise for your sim's love of bars. From level 3 onward, the sim starts earning money.

1. Night Owl ~ Love the night life so much that you can't sleep? Do you have to go out every night of the week? Can you stay up for 24 hours straight? Then this is the career for you.
-10/hour
8.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

2. Bar Stalker ~ Do bars quiver at your very presence? Do bartenders duck when they see you? Do staff members run and hide when you walk through the door? Yep! You're a Bar Stalker.
-15/hour
6.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

3. Bouncer ~ Are you good at turning people away? Can you be a ?Yes? or ?No? man (or woman)? Are you in good shape? Well, you'd better be. You know how they can get after having a few too many.
10/hour
5.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

4. Barback ~Are you ready to restock the bar, wash glasses, refill cherries, lemon and lime slices, clean up empty glasses and more? Can you have the bartender's back? Then being a barback is for you.
15/hour
4.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

5. Bartending Moonlighter ~ You are finally away from being under other bartenders wings. No more are you a servant. You are in charge of your own destiny now. Well sort of, for at least a couple of hours anyway.
25/hour
7.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

6. Bar Psychologist ~ Do you love to talk, but mostly listen? Do you love helping people with their problems? Can you give good advice? Then you have what it takes to succeed in this position.
50/hour
5.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

7. Mood Master ~ Can you tell what people need when they walk up to the bar? Got what it takes to help people wash away their sorrows? Can you bring people up when they are down or down when they are up? Then you're perfect for the job.
75/hour
5.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

8. Creative Creator ~ Do you have a wild imagination? Can you mix any drink and make it taste good? Are you a mad scientist of drinks? Why not give this a try?
90/hour
5.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

9. Master of Mixology ~ Do you know all the latest drinks? Can you make any drink asked of you? Is no drink too impossible to learn, make or master? Do you have a broad knowledge of drink combinations? Do you dream of making drinks in your sleep? Well, then you are a master of mixology.
105/hour
4.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

10. Professional of Bar Drinks ~You finally made it. You are at the top now. You came a long way. A lot of hard work and drinks, but it was all worth it. Now you run the show and sometimes you are the show (with all those fancy tricks you learned along the way). Congratulations. Relax and make yourself a drink for a change.
150/hour
6.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Thursday, Friday, Saturday

The Opportunities



Translating
I'm not fluent enough in any other languages to translate, so if you're interested in translating this career into your own language, please download the Language Strings file and open in up in Notepad.

<KEY>Gameplay/Excel/Careers/CareerList:Example</KEY>
<STR>Translate This Text</STR>

Do this for the entire file, then attach the translation to a comment and I'll update as soon as possible.
The career has been tested but if you do run into any problems, don't hesitate to let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Ah fantastic! Now I don't have to sit at the bar at the Grind for hours so my sim can earn his living from just taking over the bar.
Awesome hours too, perfect for my vampire bartender!

If you downloaded this one within the last few months, then they're exactly the same. If it was longer ago than that, then the addition of the opportunities, snowflake day bonus and removal of the boss at level ten are the big updates.
