This happened to me after the most recent update.
Got a child sims getting calls, for eco gigs and decorating gigs. No one in the family is in those career paths. I do play with mods, but nothing that messes with careers and I do keep them up to date.
Same here, I get it twice in a row every single day in every single game. It's annoying the heck out of me!
I get them for dream home decorator, acting, and freelancing. My sim is living off the grid and trying to do shipwrecked challenge but at least twice a day my actions I tell her to do are interrupted by these messages. I cannot accept any of those jobs and neither can her toddler that also gets them.
This is happening to me as well, in every single one of my played households where I have a sim who has raised the Fabricating skill.
I compared the dramanode tuning file for the maker gigs to some of the other freelance careers and the tuning file for makers is missing the line that checks for the hidden trait designation of freelance maker, which all the other drama nodes do have.
I am also experiencing this issue! It started popping up after the latest patch. My sim is not a freelancer, she is a space cadet and owns a clothing shop. I do meet the fabrication requirements to complete gig, i am just not able to select it.

Yeah, I just got a popup for my unemployed Sim (she's a farmer!) to look at Interior Decorator gigs.
Interestingly (to me?) she's from another save where she was a freelance crafter. I'm not sure if she was imported here from before or after she had the job, though...
Her wife is a freelance artist in addition to farming.
Hilariously enough, I've been getting reminders on one save file for the dog to take gigs, even when the freelancer in the house is on a gig at the time
Apologies for the necroposting, but I am now experiencing this issue (28/08/2022)…..NONE of my sims have had a freelance career or a career at all yet. My entire household gets this pop up daily (sims days) including toddlers?!!!
I’ve experienced this for the last 5 (human) days.
is EA actually going to fix this bug at any point ?!
Over 2 years later, still getting this. Every single sim - dog, cat, toddler, even newborn babies - regardless of job orientation, gets these obnoxious calls every single morning. If I've got a full household, I have to click "cancel" 8 times each morning. None of my sims are freelancers.
