Excel file with job details

I started working at this on April 8th and published above summary table on April 11th 2020 sourcing data from Finished writing all job details on 17th April, and updated later with new jobs added by expansion packs.

Note: The Sims 4 development is still undergoing as 2022, new expansions packs may be released anytime, including new jobs. Beside this, Fandom Wiki is made by volunteers and there may be a delay until all info is added (Freelancer career is missing info) or mistakes that will be corrected over time. I do not intend to buy the game myself, and even if I would buy it, I do not have time to play and check myself each job to correct possible errors.


  1. so, lemme get this straight…you’ve taken freely available data from a wiki maintained by fans of the series, put it into an excel file…and you’re charging people for it? for information that they could very easily get for free?
