Ultimate Teen Career Set
*** Created and tested with Get Famous (not required) and Game Version 18.104.22.1680 – December 20, 2018 Update (November patch definitely required) ***
PLEASE NOTE: You WILL need the newest Neia Career Commons file (included in download) also!
Also, just as an FYI (because I thought it was a bug and was about to completely embarrass myself on Neia’s forum)
as of the last patch, EA removed the “ideal mood” for rabbit hole careers.
Oh… You knew that already… Soooo… It was just me? Okay then…. Carry on.
I noticed a few people requesting teen careers on some of my previous downloads. I’m FAR from a modder, but changing an adult career to teen turned out to be really easy to do. So, here we are.
Ultimate Teen has eight original careers; Camp Counselor, Dog Walker, Lifeguard, Movie Theater Operations Person, Pet Store Associate, Spa Front Desk Associate, Tutor, Parking Valet and as a bonus, Retail Associate. I consider Retail Associate a bonus because there is already an EA Retail teen career (which I didn’t realize when I started… oops), but I left this one in because… really, who pays a teenager $33 an hour… like ever?
Couple of things (please read):
These are rabbit hole careers (so you won’t be following your teens to work).
They don’t build skills or fame, or do anything special really, but get your teens out of the house for a bit and give them a change to earn some pocket change (kinda like a real teen job ).
No expansions are required for these careers to work. IF an expansion is required for advancement, I’ll notate it in the career details below. You can still use these careers if you don’t have the expansion or stuff pack though, you would just need to use the cheat to advance.
Pay levels are lower than teen EA. I mean really, those pay levels are HIGH for a teen first job.
The cheats say “Adult” but that’s because I changed the careers to teen after exporting them from the career creator tool. I’ve tested each of these with no ill effects.
And lastly, all of the downloads are separate (which is really going to be FUN to update later… but if you want them all in one file, that’s there too.
Whew… that was a lot. Thanks for reading though it! And, now on to… The Ultimate Teen Career Set

Parenthood game pack recommended but not required. Cheat will be needed to advance.
Love kids? Want to be a role model (or just boss around impressionable small people)? Have a blast leading after-school campers through homework, toy building activities, hikes, swimming, group field games, and singing silly camp songs!
From the Camp Crystal Lake training booklet: Little people (also known as children) are a huge responsibility. Your job here at Camp Crystal Lake is a lot more than babysitting. You’ll be molding young developing minds! And getting paid for it! Win and win!

You’re now a full-fledged Counselor! Every day you get valuable transferable skills for later in life like: education (confiscating cell phones during homework period), sanitation (hosing down the Legos table), physical fitness (running those kiddies down for a good nap) and even nutrition (those PB&Js aren’t going to make themselves you know)!
Objectives: Charisma 2, Handiness 2, Guitar 3, Fitness 2
Assistant Camp Director
Congratulations! As Camp Director your job is herding… the other Counselors! You make activity plans (for the approval of the Camp Director) and meal plans (your upgrade to strawberry jam was groundbreaking). The kids love you, the counselors… well tolerate you and this is going to look great on your college apps!

Pet Store Associate
If you LOVE animals, and… don’t mind people. This is a dream job. You’re the welcoming face that people see when they come in the door. Are you organized, and can you handle a busy environment while staying cheerful? Keep the animals and the store clean and presentable so these adorable critters can find their forever home!
Time to dig in and learn the store. Learn valuable lingo like, “Shaffer.” No one wants to hear about dead animals while shopping for their new best friend. So, you manager might ask you to Shaffer tank 7 instead, ie: clean the dead hamster out of tank 7 before his tank mates eat him! Sure, it’s gross, but you’re learning valuable transferable skills!
Objectives: Handiness 1, Charisma 1, Logic 1
Pet Store Associate
You made it. You’re now a full-fledged Pet Store Associate! The customers love you. Those animal habitats sparkle under your watch. The animals are well fed, healthy and practically squeak with joy when you come near. Excepts for the rabbits. Rabbits bite and are evil, but you still manage to love them too… Mostly.
Objectives: Charisma 2, Handiness 2, Logic 2
Senior Pet Store Associate
Your first promotion! You thought you’d missed your chance for sure when you almost lost a rare parakeet while cleaning his cage. Turns out the manager admired your determination in hunting him down (and the raise almost makes up for that viral video of you chasing him through the mall). Now you direct others to Shaffer and clean while you… well we’re not sure what you do, but you have a title and a raise so… good job!

Spa Front Desk Associate
Spa Day game pack recommended but not required. Cheat will be needed to advance.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Are you centered? Do you love fitness or yoga? Okay, you’re qualified! Also, you’ll probably get a discount on classes or maybe even free use of the facilities. Not mention being paid to sit behind a desk and use the computer all afternoon.
Front Desk Trainee
Sooo… the Front Desk Associate also leaves the desk to restock towels and supplies. Um… ok. And the computer is locked and allows intranet only? Right. This first foray into real life isn’t going to as fun as you thought, but on the bright side, spas smell great! Am I right? Am I right?
Objectives: Charisma 1, Logic 1, Wellness 1
Front Desk Associate
Well, it still beats that manual labor gig the job site sent you. Pays more too! The spa is warm and calming. The towels are warm and fluffy, and your boss (also warm) doesn’t mind if you sit in at the back of the classes on slow days. The customers are… surprisingly demanding and needy for a WELLNESS center, but you can’t have everything!
Objectives: Charisma 2, Logic 2, Wellness 2, Programming 2
Front Desk Associate and Appointment Specialist
Your skills at the computer have not gone unnoticed (fortunately your hacking to get outside web access has!). You’re now married to the desk as you take calls in your best soothing spa voice, greet customers and make complicated green tea blends all day. THIS is living!
Objectives: Charisma 4, Logic 4, Wellness 4
Cheat: careers.promote career_Adult_SpaFrontDeskAssociate
Retail Sales Associate
This is the job where you’ll learn to hate everyone and gain respect for every retail worker you interact with for the rest of your life. This is a highly worthwhile job for anyone who loves clothes and people. You’ll get discounts on trendy outfits while also walking away with some interesting tales about customers.
Unbox, fold, stock, hang, stock repeat. The manager is a pain. The hours are brutal. The pay is even worse, but those sweet sweet store discounts and you looking like the fashionista you are. Smile and stock. Grin and grovel. Next season is right around the corner and having first pick of the new stock is a bonus in itself!
Objectives: Charisma 1, Fitness 1
Can you say promotion? Your feet are killing you, but badging and bagging beats tagging and tabling any day. In your mind you’re shopping and styling… for yourself. You pretty much hand your paycheck back to the store every week. BUT, your closet has never looked so trendy!
Objectives: Charisma 1, Fitness 2, Logic 2, Programming 1
Your eye for style, and way with the customer has not gone unnoticed. You’re wasted behind that register. Or maybe your boss just took pity on your spending habit and gave you that promotion. Whatever. You make this store look good!

This is as close to “Super Hero” as it gets as you’ll get. You learn how to save lives and keep people having fun at your local pool or water park. While some swim-related establishments offer CPR training, not all do. Before you apply, check the places you’re hoping to work to make sure you’re qualified.
Lots to learn when your job is saving lives. Swim the 300 and then laps on your back holding a 10lb weight. Swim with it on your side using only one arm. Rescue maneuvers and the basic first-aid and CPR. So much CPR.
Objectives: Fitness 2
It was totally worth it. This. Is. The. Best. Job. Ever. Sit in a chair all day and hope nobody does anything stupid in the water. Stop little kids from running and big kids from rough housing. Flirt with other lifeguards. Yeah… this is living.
Objectives: Fitness 3
You had your moment. You saved Malcolm Landgraab, local rich kid and notoriously poor swimmer. Your boss loves you. You got your name in the paper and a promotion! Now you’re a Senior Lifeguard. So… pretty much like being a regular Lifeguard… but you make the schedules. Hello weekends off!
Objectives: Fitness 4
Cheat: careers.promote career_Adult_Lifeguard
Movie Theater Operations
Here it is. The beginning. Your first step closer to stardom (probably not). But no better way to begin learning how cinema works than in a movie theater. You’ll have to remember where all the theaters are, stock the candy shelves without eating all of the candy and be ready to prepare and serve snacks. And, think of all the free popcorn!
OMG! Who knew there’d be so much to remember?!? The register has so many buttons! The popcorn has to be handled just so. The hot dogs have to be just the right temp… and no one wants to get you started on the smell of burnt popcorn. And free movies aren’t half the trade-off you thought.
Objectives: Charisma 1, Cooking 1, Programming 1
Cashier and Usher
Well, that wasn’t so hard. You’ve mastered the booth and the counter. Now, you even have your own trainees to terrorize. Register? No problem. Ticket booth? Piece of cake. Rowdy customers? Not your problem. That’s what the shift leader is for.
Objectives: Charisma 2, Cooking 2, Programming 2
Along with your raise comes a lot of new responsibility. The hours are later, and you get called on to solve problems with courtesy and efficiency. Making sure all the other teens are in their places and working hard doesn’t make you very popular, but rank has it privileges. Weekends off for the win!

Valet Parking Attendant
As long as you’re capable of not getting into a car accident at 10 mph, this is a job for you. There’s also a chance you’ll get to sit in some sweet rides. Oh! You also need a driver’s license and a good driving record. You’re definitely going to need both of those.
Sitting in a freezing booth and counting out correct change isn’t exactly a thrill a minute. But you’ve got to get a little seniority under your belt before anyone trusts you with the keys to a sweet ride. Smile and be polite. Get the change right and earn the managers trust.
Objectives: Charisma 1, Logic 1
Well, it’s a step up. Taking the tickets and greeting customers is your job now. Be polite and make sure the customers keep coming back. Keep those tickets and keys sorted (maybe trade in that learners’ for an actual license too). Tips are a nice perk, but a gear head like you really wants to get behind the wheel!
Objectives: Charisma 2, Logic 2, Handiness 1
At last you got your break. One of the valets called in sick on a busy Friday night and after one look at your parallel parking skillz the manager promoted you on the spot! Now you make the big bucks and drive the big cars. Life is good!

Pets expansion recommended but not required
Walking dogs for a living is more than just pulling on a leash and getting some exercise. Point blank, the easiest way to start making money walking dogs is to join an agency. Sure, we take a cut of the money, but you’ll get experience and we handle the legal mumbo-jumbo!
Trainee dog walker? Yup. Apparently at Paws Around the Park, that’s a thing. Handling multiple pets is tricky. Scooping poop not so much so, but sanitary disposal is a big deal. You’ve got to learn it all before you can take the leashes on your own!
Objectives: Fitness 1, Dog Training 1
You love dogs… and it’s a good thing you do. Controlling sometimes several dogs at a once takes strength and a firm hand. Walk those dogs and don’t let them walk you! Nobody handles a leash like you! Maybe you could work for yourself after all.
Objectives: Fitness 2, Dog Training 2
Entrepreneur Dog Walker
Going into to business for yourself was a big decision. But with the help of your parents you got insured and went out on your own. You’ve got to keep track of schedules. Be firm with the dogs and still friendly enough to charm the owners. But you have NO overhead and all the profits are yours!
Objectives: Charisma 1, Fitness 3, Logic 2
Cheat: careers.promote career_Adult_DogWalker
Pretty good at a certain subject in school or just plain good at explaining things? Helping someone else learn something strengthens your understanding of that skill. That’s a pretty sweet return gift for helping someone out.
Helping your fellow students after school earns you a few pennies. Soon you have your own after-school study group and you think hmmm…. Maybe there are some actual tutor jobs out there I can do? Practice those skills and hit the job boards!
Objectives: Logic 2
Math Plus is seeking passionate, dedicated exceptional math students to join their group of instructors. You show them your references and your advanced grades and you’re in! With the group size and static curriculum, this can be one hard gig. And you miss that one-on-one student relationship.
Objectives: Logic 3, Charisma 2
Tutor for You seems like the perfect fit. You get to teach advanced classes one on one in your favorite subject. TfY even matches students based on tutor qualifications, location, and teaching style. Now, as a tutor, YOU choose which students to accept and determine your own weekly schedule.
