Now your teenage Sims can drop out of high school and get a real job. This mod is broken up into three parts: High School Dropout, Adult Jobs for Teens, and Adult Career outfit for Teen unlocks.

Updated for 1.36
Redownload and relpace old mods


New High School Dropout method
Due to the 1.30 update my old method of dropping out of school caused Last Exception errors. Luckily for all of us CardTaken has a quit school mod that still works with 1.30. Download Child and Teen can Quit or Rejoin School (NEW: No Auto Enrollment) (don't forget to click thanks) and remove any of my old No High School mods. Note that CardTaken's mod is in two parts a .package and a .ts4script and both are needed to work. Once installed select your teen and using their phone select Quit Job and select High School; or use the cheat careers.remove_career highschool



Adult Jobs for Teens


Install the "Telford - Adult jobs for Teens BASE GAME" package and your teens will be able to join all the base game careers in addition to the regular part time jobs. Be sure to also install one of the no high school mods and quit any part-time jobs your teens may already have.

Install "Telford - Adult jobs for Teens GET TO WORK" to unlock the Get to Work careers for your teens. This will allow your teens to join the Scientist, Medical and Detective careers introduced with the Get to Work expansion. This package only unlocks the Get to Work jobs and can be safely installed along with the above Adult Jobs for Teens packages. (Requires Get to Work)

Install “Telford - Adult jobs for Teens CITY LIVING” to unlock the City Living careers for your teens. This will allow your teens to join the Social Media, Critic or Political careers introduced with the City Living expansion. This package only unlocks the City Living jobs and can be safely installed along with the above Adult Jobs for Teens packages. (Requires City Living)




Adult Career Outfits for Teens


Some career outfits from Get to Work were not flagged for teen use, so for teens to wear the right outfits install the "Telford - Adult Jobs for Teens CAS overrides GET TO WORK 1.29" package. This mod fixes any CAS part not flagged for teen.

Base Game and City Living have all of the adult clothes already flagged for teens and does not require a mod. The old CAS override mods causes problems with sims changing into random career clothes and have been removed, if you experience this problem remove the Base game and City living mods and update the Get to work CAS mods.





Install Instructions
These mods have been updated to work with version 1.30. Some of the mods require expansion packs to work, check the mod description before installing.
To work properly at least two packages need to be installed:

1) Install CardTaken's mod Child and Teen can Quit or Rejoin School (NEW: No Auto Enrollment)

2) Install any of:
  • Telford - Adult jobs for Teens BASE GAME
  • Telford - Adult jobs for Teens GET TO WORK
  • Telford - Adult jobs for Teens CITY LIVING

3) If Adult jobs for Teens GET TO WORK is installed also Install:
  • Telford - Adult Jobs for Teens CAS overrides GET TO WORK 1.29

I followed the instructions completely. I downloaded CardTaken's mod called Child and Teen can quit school. Then I downloaded all 4 of your files. I have all expansion packs. Some of the jobs show up but not all of them. Are you planning an update for the other jobs? I know Actress is one of the missing jobs but there seemed like a lot more was missing too. Also I haven't tested to see if my teen actually goes to work but I know she can accept them from her phone. I love the mod but I'd love for the other jobs to be listed as well.

It would be awesome if someone could make a mod that isn't specifically jobs for teens or adults, but gives the option for teens to work the evening shift and weekends instead. Working at a retail store is a job for both adults and teens, just most teens only work eve/weekend. Allowing us to choose our own shifts makes the game a lot more realistic!

So anyone know of an alternative mod to this? It seems like it's not going to be updated again, and it's messing with the freelancer career.

if you are wanting just the freelance careers for teens theres another mod that allows teens to work in freelance careers by msqsims on her blog site than you will click all mods and under gameplay mods.
