Making money can be tricky in The Sims 4. Of course, you can just use cheats and plant simoleons right into your game, but doing it the old fashioned way, through hard-work and a daily job is harder, especially when you’re not sure which jobs in the game earn the most money.

Here is a list of the top 10 highest earning careers in The Sims 4!

If you’re looking for a list of all the careers, check out my Ultimate Sims 4 Career Guide!
