Odd jobs are one-time jobs Sims can complete in order to earn Simoleons. Odd jobs were introduced in The Sims 4: Island Living.
Odd jobs are accessed from the phone under the "Work" tab. These jobs appear on a panel that displays a selection of ads posted by NPC Sims. Wages for jobs performed are paid either upfront or by the hour. Some odd jobs require specific skills, while others do not. Depending on how well the Sim performed the job, it can increase or decrease their relationship with the other Sim.
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 neighborhood.
- 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 typical jobs.
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.
