Odd Jobs is a gameplay feature introduced in The Sims 4: Island Living. Odd Jobs are a one-time job Sims can complete in order to earn more Simoleons.
Accessed from the phone under the "Work" tab, Odd Jobs is a panel with a selection of ads posted by NPC Sims asking for help and offering a sum of money upfront or by the hour, depending on how the Sim did the job it can increase or decrease their relation with the other Sim. Odd Jobs can require a skill or not.
There are two types of Odd Jobs:
- Needed By - Odd Jobs with a "Needed by ___" will require the Sim to do something from their home lot or neighbourhood.
- Begins ASAP - Odd Jobs with a "Begins ASAP" will require the Sim to leave their lot at a set time for a few hours just like normal careers.
Every Sim is rated in stars out of five and every Odd Job completed will add up to the Sim's star rating. The more stars a Sim has the more Odd Jobs they will be able to take on.
