The "Get to Work" expansion pack in Sims 4 introduces three new professions for your Sim to explore - the doctor, scientist, and detective careers. As these are dedicated career paths, they don't split into different specialties. Yet, you have the power to fast-track or slow down your Sim's professional progress through these cheat codes. 

Career Cheat Codes

Boost your scientist Sim's rank:
careers.promote adult_active_scientist

Set back your scientist Sim's career:
careers.demote adult_active_scientist 

Advance your detective Sim in their field:
careers.promote detective

Demote your detective Sim:
careers.demote detective

Push your doctor Sim towards professional success:
careers.promote doctor 

Roll back your doctor Sim's career progress:
careers.demote doctor 

Baking and Photography Cheat Codes

Originally, the "Get To Work" expansion added two unique skills to the game - baking and photography. Over time, photography has become a fundamental skill, leaving baking as the exclusive skill for this expansion pack. For each skill, you can manually define their level using a cheat code, where 'x' is the required level. Baking is a significant 10-level skill, and photography is a minor 5-level skill. 

Assign your Sim a Baking Skill level (1-10):
stats.set_skill_level major_baking x 

Determine your Sim's Photography Skill level (1-5):
stats.set_skill_level minor_photography x

Retail Business Cheat Codes
