Here’s The Sims 4 Freelancer career guide explained

To begin this career, click on the career tab in the lower left corner and then choose the Freelancer option. Once you do this, the game will ask you which specialization you want. You can choose between three options, Programmer, Writer, or Digital Artist. All of these branches require your Sim to have a computer, however, for being Digital Artist you will need a digital sketchpad.

To perform gigs, go to the career panel and select ” Check for Gigs,” and pick the gigs you want to do. You will also notice that a lot of the gigs are going to be locked behind a certain level requirement.

Although you can change your Freelancing trade whenever you want, it is not at all recommended. As once you change it, all of the progress you have done in the previous trade will go away.

So, don’t be a jack of all trades, and rather try to make sure you choose only one specialization to master. Timely complete the gigs that you take on to increase your performance bar.

For this branch, having Creative, Perfectionist, or Bookworm traits are definitely going to be very useful. Your daily tasks are going to be writing books, editing, and chatting with a client. Your Sim is going to be spending most of its time in front of the computer. As the majority of the tasks are going to center around writing fantasy books or ghostwriting.

Try to take a writing job that will require you to give only one write-up, as your Sim will also need to get the approval from the client, thus, it becomes very troublesome if there are multiple write-ups in the one gig you are performing.
