This is a set of global mods that change a few things about jobs.
Some of this stuff may have been done before, like uni jobs in Inteen, as I've heard. But I love job related mods and couldn't help making them. Some of them still may be useful. Pick and choose. Separate packages should make it easier.

Mods in this set:
Updates
17 Feb. 2018: YA-work-wants-fears updated with new lifted want restrictions (enter career track).

If you have been testing these mods earlier, please remove testing package before adding any of these. I think, it's called "job-options-lamare.package".
Thank you!

Choose part-time or full-time career type
Features:
  • Adults, young adults and elders can choose between part-time and full-time jobs. A dialog pops up when your sim is about to use computer or paper to find a job.
  • Teens are still limited to part-time jobs.
  • One more thing in AL version: Debug interaction on a newspaper provides choice as well (by Shift-click with cheats enabled). Young adults, adults and elders see both part-time and full-time menu options.
Versions (choose one):
  • choose-career-type-AL
  • choose-career-type-P
Requirements:
  • AL - Requires Apartment Life or Mansions and Gardens
  • P - Requires Pets or later (but since I'm on UC and can't test it, be careful and test).
  • Don't download if your latest EP lower than Pets.
Compatibility:
  • Both versions should be compatible with Pescado's Harder jobs and Cyjon's Job Stopinator.
  • Both versions probably conflict with InTeen.
  • AL version conflicts with Pescado's no-age-discrimination.
  • This mod may conflict with mods that use the same resources:

Ask before promoting
Features:
  • Promotions are mostly offered instead of being pushed on sims and pets. A dialog pops up for player to accept or decline new position.
  • Regular promotion offer for job performance:
    • By default, the chance of getting it is 100%, provided sims qualify for the next level, but it can be altered with lower promotion chance mod.
  • Promotions on special occasions:
    • When a random boss's cousin promises promotion (networking bonus), after the next work day, sims are presented with an offer.
    • When a colleague pulls some strings (good relationships or love?), sims get an offer.
  • Better promotion deal:
    • Sims have a 40% chance of getting second offer, after they decline the first one, provided they qualify and have good job performance.
    • Better promotion deal takes sims to even higher position (skip level), but never to the top.
  • Goes without offering:
    • all kinds of penalties, demotions, firings;
    • promotions caused by chance cards.
  • This mod applies to full-time, part-time and pet career tracks.
Versions:
  • ask-before-promotion
Requirements:
  • Requires Apartment Life or Mansions and Gardens
Compatibility:
  • Should be compatible with Pescado's Harder jobs and Cyjon's Job Stopinator.
  • May conflict with Pescado's jobfixes. Looks like it's for OFB jobs. Haven't played them much, so don't know what is wrong with them and what jobfixes fix.
  • This mod may conflict with mods that use the same resources:

Jobs in University 'hood
Features:
  • Sims and pets can work while being in university 'hood.
    • Sims from teen to elder, including young adults, can find a job on computer and newspaper.
    • Sims can find a job for their cats and dogs living with them on campus.
  • The game processes jobs properly on University lots (for example, checks for being late) and shows you job-related notifications.
  • Working sims and/or pets get carpool to work.
  • Note: If you get "no more offers" message, try again and you'll get job offers. It may happen when you've just installed the mod or just moved in (some stuff needs time/nudge to update).
Versions (choose one):
  • jobs-in-uni-for-all - for sims and pets
  • jobs-in-uni-only-sims - for people only
  • jobs-in-uni-only-pets - for animals only
Requirements:
  • Requires Apartment Life or Mansions and Gardens
Compatibility:
  • Probably conflicts with InTeen.
  • This mod may conflict with mods that use the same resources:
_

Young adults want and fear work
Features:
  • Young adults can have wishes and fears about work: find a job, go to work, get a promotion, etc.
Versions:
  • YA-work-wants-fears
Requirements:
  • Requires any EP from Nightlife or higher (but I only tested on UC).
Compatibility:
  • This mod may conflict with mods that use the same resources:
