[NEEDS INPUT] [GF] Career rewards not unlocking with Career Hopper perk

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? 日本語
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.48.94.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions and game packs, some stuff packs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Join a career, go to work and wait until a random event text menu pops up, asking you if you would like to instantly jump to the maximum career level. Choose YES and after confirming that you have jumped to Level 10, check your inventory if you have received all the career reward items. If you have skipped from say level 6 up to 10, look if you have received the rewards for levels 7, 8, 9 and 10.
What happens when the bug occurs? I took the instant career jump within the Entertainer/Comedian branch from level 6 to 10, with the result that all the reward items inbetween (for levels 7 to 9) were missing. They are still locked in build mode at this time.
What do you expect to see? When you hit level 10 in a career, I would expect to receive all the rewards that lay inbetween as well, regardless if there had been a career jump or not, especially when that jump was offered by the game and not forced by using mods or cheats.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

This time, the infamous "Connections Reward Bug" had nothing to do with this occurance. It works just fine, as well as the recently introduced Get Famous perk "Career Hopper" which provides you with all the "skipped" reward items. Unfortunately, the new career event choices (the big text boxes that pop up in the middle of the screen, asking you to make a career-related choice; I'm not quite sure how and when this was first introduced though) which are supposed to reward you with bonuses are not functioning as well as intended.

 

BTW, I am playing the Japanese version of The Sims 4, but I don't believe this is a language/localization related issue.

Ok, this is a follow up to my post above. Today I was using the same character, giving it a second try in the Entertainer/Comedian branch. After hitting Level 5, the same event box popped up (presumably one of the new ones that came with Get Famous) while my Sim was at work and this time I was paying attention and captured some screenshots which I have attached to this post. In addition, I added English descriptions as I am playing the Japanese Version (not a commonly understood language, I know). Please Keep in mind that I never played the English version, so the terminology (event titles, item names etc.) may be out of place.
