Apply for a job by clicking on a business shown at the Town Map or use your PC to search for a fulltime-job. Once you reach level 4 or 5 there will be 4 career performance requirements available in the career tab. You have to fulfill each of them until you get the "Outstanding" smiley. All 4 need to stay at "Outstanding" until you leave work. Karma Powers such as Super Satisfy are recommended. Law Enforcement Career and Business Career seem to be the easiest jobs for the achievement.

Tips for all career performance requirements:

You need to reach a specific level in a specific skill. The "Quick Lerner" Lifetime Award and the Genius Karma Power will make this easier. Read books and elaborate the skill by performing certain actions (e.g. writing a book, painting, fishing, gardening, cooking, etc.) until you reach the required level.

As soon as you're employed you'll be informed about your boss. Throw a party or call him/her and invite him/her to your home. Use lots of friendly and romantic interactions until you and your boss are friends, good friends or best friends. The lifetime reward "Attractive" and traits like Charismatic, and Friendly are recommended.

Use the Karma Power "Super Satisfied" to be in the best mood possible. You can also use the Moodlet Manager or you make sure that your Sim eats enough, sleeps enough, has lots of fun (play videogames), is clean, goes to toilet before you start working and has enough social interactions.

When you're at work press B and A and you'll be able to choose how your Sim works. Choose to hang around with your partner/co-workers to get the outstanding smiley. Alternatively you can invite them to your home in your freetime and use friendly interactions.

Make sure to fulfill these extra requirements several times until you get the outstanding smiley. Switch to the career tab and press X to see what you have to do. Usually you only have to interact friendly with NPCs and write something about that / ask them for money / etc. Often it's also possible to fulfill these extra requirements whilst at work (press A and B and perform the required task as long as necessary).

If you don't want to read this block of text then just skip to the bullet points at the end.

I got this by getting my sim up to the top level in the Science career. To do this you need to level up fishing, handiness and gardening. I found the easiest way to do this was to cast 'Stroke of Genius' on my sim and then put then reading a skill book for handiness or gardening. There are no skill books to help with fishing, so for that I cast 'Stroke of Genius' and 'Super Satisfy' and set them fishing at the Misty Branch Fishing Hole at the right side of the town map. Then all you need to do is make sure your sim has outstanding mood and you must keep it at outstanding for the whole time they are at work! I cast 'Super Satisfy' on my sim, when fully upgraded this gives your sim a moodlet which stops any of their needs bars from dropping for around 14 hours. I then sent them to the day spa for the top treatment, which gives them +75 mood for a few days. I didn't realise that the day spa treatment would take a few hours, so they ended up being very late for work (they finish work at 3 P.M., they went to work at 1.30 P.M.), but when they got home I get the achievement, so if you're having difficulty with this you don't need to be on time for work!

So in summary:

-Get your sim to the top level in the Science career (have level 10 in handiness, gardening and fishing.)
-Cast the karma power 'Super Satisfy'
-Get them a treatment from the day spa.
-Send them to work, their moodlets must be outstanding when returning home! They can be sent to work late, e.g. An hour before work ends, and you will still get the achievement.

Note: You will know you're Sims career performance moodlets are outstanding when the face next to them is the same as the ones in the achievement pictures. (To view this tab, press RB or LB while in Live Mode until you get to the career tab.)

Please feel free to post any questions you have and i will do my best to help you out. Happy gaming :)

Everything is correct from the post above, but what you need to remember is that your sim has to stay outstandingly happy from the time they go to work until they come home over wise you won’t get the achievement
Or 4 green smiley faces when they go to work and 4 green smiley faces when they return from work.
