Jobs For Students

Base GameUniversity Life

With three ‘degrees’ out, and a fourth in development, I thought it was time I released the first Opportunity Pack!

With the Simbridge University program, I intend to release several ‘packs’ of opportunities for your University students to enjoy. The first in the series is “Jobs for Students”.

There are 20 opportunities in the pack, giving the ability for your students to earn money while completing their studies. These work like skill opportunities; so you can have one running alongside any opportunities for the degree.

This mod requires Late Night, University Life and Island Paradise to work as intended. The majority of the opportunities are base game compatible, however.
This mod also requires the Check For Work In Rabbitholes mod by Gamefreak130. The mod allows you to search for opportunities at any rabbithole in the game and this is the only way you will find these opportunities. They will not come through the phone. Instead, you can find them on any rabbithole by selecting ‘Check For Work’.
