Education (Unleashed)
Introduction

If your Sim is a bit lazy, gets along with kids very well and doesn't need a lot of money, then perhaps the Education career is something for him. The working hours are pretty steady, and your Sim won't have to work at night at all. Just 9 friends and 2 skills maxed will be enough to reach the top. It's not an exhausting job like some others, and nearly anybody can go this way. The only downside is the salary, which reflects how easy it is to get to the top: sometimes you'll have to train relatively much to get promoted, with only a minor increase in salary. It'll only be halfway through the career that you'll start earning enough to be able to afford some luxury.
1. Playground Monitor
"While you won't exactly be molding the minds of tomorrow, at least you can control them on the playground. The kids are a pain and the hours are early, but at least the pay is half-way decent."

2. Substitute Teacher
"Your ability to control unruly children on the playground has not gone unnoticed. Now let's see how you do in the classroom. You'll need to teach craft classes and help with lunchtime snacks, so remember to work on the appropriate skills."

3. Kindergarten Teacher

4. Junior High Teacher
"Finally, you can come in a bit later and the kids are more mature, but you're still a glorified baby sitter with a salary to match. Union leaders are watching you now, so put on your thinking cap, play along with their so-called "educational reform," and you'll go far."

5. High School Teacher
"The last teacher in your position quit in disgust...can you take the heat? Know-it-all teens can be a "challenge," when they aren't ditching class that is, and you'll be forced to teach everything from algebra to art classes, so be prepared."
