The professions available in The Sims 3 Ambitions include: Architect, Firefighter, Ghost Hunter, Inventor, Private Investigator, Sculptor, Stylist, and Tattoo Artist. Each level in a career path for each profession also has new outfits that it unlocks for your Sim.
Architect / Interior Designer
The architect or interior design is a profession that is for those that love to redecorate their towns. It helps to have high artistic and charismatic skills and many friends to solicit your services to. Start as a “Dictator of Design" and end up as a “Dictator of Design."
A firefighter is brave and puts out fires, captures Mysterious Gnomes and is quite possibly the town hero. Sims must also maintain their fire station and their fire truck. Start out as a “Waterboy / Watergirl" and end up as a “Fire Chief."
The ghost hunting profession is all about hunting ghosts and banishing them from your town. If you are a bit on the quirky side and perhaps like to hang around in the graveyard, this is the job for you! Start out as a “Tarot Card Reader" and end up as a “Paranormal Expert."
Inventing is a hobby and a profession introduced with Ambitions. With this profession, you work when you want to and can discover and invent (and blow up) many new things, even make your own SimBot! The highest rank as an Inventor is as a “Fourth Dimensional Architect."
Private Investigator is a profession that is great for Sims with high logic, charisma and athletic skills to solve cases. Sims start out as an “Eavesdropper" and end up as a “Private Eye."
Sculpting is a skill that may be also be a self-employed career. Sims can sculpt whatever type of sculptures they wish and sell them for their job! Sims start as a “Questionable Potter" and end up as “Master Sculptologists."
The fashion career is a fun new profession that is perfect for those Sim players that are always changing up their Sims fashions. Now, they can makeover the entire town! Start out as a “Fashion Fledgling" and become a “Fashion Phenomenon."
Tattooing is a “hidden skill" added to Ambitions. Sims can now have tattoos that are fully customizable with up to five layers placed on their upper, lower, or full back, ankle, chest, neck, stomach, shoulder, bicep, forearm, or wrist.
If your Sim doesn’t like to work in a conventional sense, they can become self-employed simply by going to City Hall after they have at least one point in a skill career.
* Teaching is a new career track that was added, and the Medical career track also received new features.
