Hi @jk-olsen

I tested this in my game and had no issue with it.

Did you try repairing the game and did you also delete your localthumbcache file after removing the mods/cc ?

I was having this same issue that the button under the career tab just was not working. However I realized that when I clicked the work tab on her phone, I had the option at the top to 'cancel gig' even though she didnt have one. I did that and suddenly the check open auditions button was working again. 

Not sure if this will work for you, but it's worth a try

So, Deleting Cache/localthumbcache and reparing the game did not help, however, cancel gig from phone worked.

Can't Join a Gig

★★★★ Novice

Continued from https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-PC/I-can-t-join-my-sim-on-their-gig-on-the-acting-career/...

 

I couldn't join a gig originally because I removed a household member. I solved my problem by moving the sim back in.

 

After finishing a gig finally, though, I can't join or search for another one: it creates a queue in my sim's action bar but quickly disappears. Restarting the game does nothing.

 

Any help is appreciated!

 

(I have no mods.)
