The Sims 4 Island Living: Lifeguard Career Guide

Presented by EA Game Changers

The Sims 4 Island Living comes with four new careers including the part-time Lifeguard career. The Lifeguard career is perfect for your beach loving Sims too! This is just one of three new part-time careers that your Sim can join.

As with any career, your Sim can join the Lifeguard career simply by sitting down at a laptop/computer, using their cell phone or by the career tab on the user interface.

Note: Your Sim can have more than one part-time job, providing that the shift times do not conflict with each other.

Note: As part of The Sims4 update on 18th June 2019 your Sims can now have part-time jobs. Some of these will let you select a shift pattern which is either morning or afternoon/evening. Once you have selected on you can not change the shift time unless you quit the job and have your Sim rejoin again.

There are only three levels to the Lifeguard Career as opposed to the ten levels you see in a standard career. Each level of the career will have a promotion task that will allow your Sim to advance to the next level of the career. The Lifeguard career does not have any work from home assignments either.

Like most of the careers in the game, your Sim will go to work and return at the end of their shift.

The Lifeguard career also comes with a couple of interactions that you can do outside of work. Patrol for Danger where your Sim will observe their surroundings while occasionally standing in a more serious pose. The second interaction that your Sim can do is everyone’s favorite Beach Flex. It’s like dabbing only more Sims like! Both of these can be accessed when your Sim is not at work simply by clicking on the ground for Patrol for Danger or by clicking on another Sim when you want to show them your Beach Flex.

  1. yeah be cool if you can actually go on location as a lifeguard. Seeing your Sim rescue others, or do slow motion Baywatch style jogging. Cool stuff overall.

  2. Hey! I’m not sure if you reply to your comments, but I believe I’m having a bit of a glitch with the new island living pack and would love some help/someone else’s opinion on it:) thank you.

  3. yeah it would be better if it was more like the sims3 lifeguard career where you actually had to save people and interact more with your sim.

  4. A very disappointing career, especially when you’ve played the sims 3 version. …
    Kind of pointless to have them just go to the rabbit hole and get two boring interactions.
    Hope they rework that. Cause there’s not much else i find interesting in that pack.

  5. I would want to see lifeguards in action on sims 4 like they did on sims 3 Island Paradise when you swim towards a drowning sim, rescue them and give them CPR. Unless they’re doing a update for it.
