Custom Career Ideas

So, because I'm a complete crazy person who can't stop starting projects, I've been thinking about making some custom careers lately. I know my way around SimPE pretty well, so I don't think I'll have trouble creating them, but I figured I might as well workshop the ideas a bit before really jumping into the custom-career deep end.

Current ideas are as follows...


Software Development
Because really, this is one of the biggest, most lucrative fields these days.
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Logic, Creativity, Mechanical
Networking Requirements: ~8 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided, starts at Intern or Tech Support and goes up to Tech Entrepreneur. Possible mid-levels include QA Tester, Coder, Startup Founder, and Project Lead.
Can Roll As LTW For: Knowledge, Fortune
BACC Unlock: university degree in Mathematics OR own all buyable computers (not including Humble's if you have the nohumble mod).


Finance
For when you get sick of the Business career fluff.
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Logic, Charisma, undetermined (probably Creativity)
Networking Requirements: ~8 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided, starts at Bank Teller, but I'm not sure where it should end. Probable promotion levels include Personal Financial Advisor, Actuary, and Stockbroker.
Can Roll As LTW For: Fortune
BACC Unlock: Finance is open to any Sim with a diploma or the Financial Advice For Cash aspiration benefit.


Engineering
You have that Mechanical skill, so use it!
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Mechanical, Logic, Creativity
Networking Requirements: ~6 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided.
Can Roll As LTW For: Knowledge
BACC Unlock: Tinkering hobby plaque or gold Robotics badge.


Veterinary
Animals need doctors too!
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Logic, Cleaning, possibly Charisma
Networking Requirements: ~7 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided, earliest levels are probably Pet Store Cashier and Veterinary Receptionist, high levels involve managing an animal hospital and might turn your Sim into Doctor Doolittle or something, because this is a game with mad scientists, dinosaur cloners, space pirates, and superheroes.
Can Roll As LTW For: Family, Knowledge
BACC Unlock: a position in Veterinary opens for every 10 playable pets.


Nonprofit
For the philanthropic and opinionated.
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Charisma, Creativity, undetermined
Networking Requirements: ~15 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided, starts with things like Pamphlet Pusher and Protest Sign Designer, ends up with Philanthropist.
Can Roll As LTW For: Family, Popularity
BACC Unlock: undecided


Retail
A career to inflict upon Sims you hate.
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Charisma, Cleaning, Body
Networking Requirements: ~10 family friends
Promotion Levels: Night Crew Janitor, Stock Associate, Cashier, Shift Lead, Assistant Manager, Floor Manager, Union Organizer, Human Resources Representative, Store Manager, District Manager.
Can Roll As LTW For: Nobody. Nobody rolls LTW's for retail.
BACC Unlock: one position per Sim owned retail business that opens, plus one for each one that reaches level 10.



I might not do all of these, of course... but I'd still like any feedback or suggestions you guys might have!

These are really neat, I like the BACC requirement. For the Vet one you could do fish tank scrubber/algae scrubber as entry level, that's what we used to make interns do at work.

Oh, these sound really cool! I'd love to have the Veterinary career in my BaCC, as well as the Retail one. :D
