How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? When I search for a party or look at invitations from friends, I notice that only one icon is ever shown: my oldest sim's hobby. But not her career. Even when I know that there are career items matching hers at some of those parties. With my 2 newest sims, neither their careers nor their hobbies are showing when I search for parties. I suspect that the items available at my house are not showing when other people see my party invitations either, and that is why my parties are now poorly-attended and much harder to get to 10.
What do you expect to see? What I expect to see is a visible display of my sims' achievements when I make a selection of which parties they should attend. I also expect other players to be able to see what is available at my house. Basically, parties is broken at the moment.

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? When I search for a party I notice that out of my 3 sims, only one hobby icon for only one of my sims is showing! Also, my own parties are very badly attended now and it is much harder to get my parties to 10. I suspect this is because none or virtually none of the achievements of my current sims or my previous generations of sims are showing when my friends and other people search for parties!
What do you expect to see? I expect to see icons for one hobby and one career showing up for each of my 3 sims when I search for parties - or at least when I find a higher-level party. Especially when I am looking at party invitations from friends, when I happen to know that there are hobby and career items in their houses which match my sims!

Re: Missing Career/Hobby Icons on Party-Search: Low-Achieving Parties

Same issue here. On top of that there are no bubble signs on some of the career or hobby items. I've noticed piano doesn't have it.

Party Icons Don’t Appear for Dance or Business Careers

★★ Guide

Product: The Sims Mobile
Platform:Apple iPhone
List the specific devices you play with (e.g. iPhone 6s Plus, Samsung Galaxy S7) iPhone X
OS Version 12.4
Player ID: (Find your Player ID in Sims Mobile: https://help.ea.com/help/the-sims/the-sims-mobile/find-your-player-id-in-the-sims-mobile )
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1) Place a sim in the Dance or Business career. 2) Ask a friend to host a party and have them place the primary items out for those careers (or any/all of the items for these careers, as it won’t make a difference), 3) Look at the party invite and see that the briefcase icons don’t appear.
What do you expect to see? The briefcase icon (regardless of color) indicate that the host has the primary item out at the party for your sim’s respective career. If the host has the primary items out, then I expect to see the briefcase icon appear under my sim, signaling that the host has the career items. The briefcase doesn’t appear for either of these careers.

Additional feedback (It would be great if the icon system was reviewed in general, since none of the newer careers got added to the party themes, thus turning icons gold. Or if the icons made a significant impact on parties, like they earned more points, or something, when using the career items at the party, but that’s for another day).

Every career in TSM (except ASOS, Surgeon, and the Hairdresser career) has career collection items AND what my friends and I call “primary items.” Please see my friend’s guide below to see which items we’ve identified as primary items. They are in the first tier and they unlock solo interactions at parties.

Whenever those primary items are out at a host’s party, then the guest sim in that respective career will see a briefcase appear under their picture. If the host does not have the primary item out at all at the party, then no briefcase appears at all. 

 

Two careers in TSM do not show the briefcase icon under the sim’s picture, despite the host having the primary items at the party. These two careers are the Dance career and the Business career. 

 

Here are screenshots to show you what I’m looking at:

 

1) My female sim in the Dance career attended a party where the host had the Checker Me Out Dance Floor out at the party. However, my sim, (who had no hobby assigned at the time), did not appear at all as an ideal attendee. If the icon worked as it should, then my sim’s picture and the briefcase icon would have appeared.

2) My male sim in the Business career attended a party where the host had the Classy Beverage Shelf out. My sim’s writing hobby icon appeared (and since it was a studio party the icon turned gold); however, no briefcase icon appeared under my male sim’s picture for the Business career. Had it been working as it should, then the beverage shelf would have prompted my sim to have a briefcase icon appear.

@Phantomlover1717 

 

The title of this thread suggests that there are missing hobby icons for parties. That hasn’t been my experience. 

 

The host of the party has to have the primary item for the hobby in order for the hobby icon to appear. For some hobbies, like the piano and internet icon, those are seen less because fewer players have those hobbies and primary objects out at their house. 

 

But if other players aren’t ever able to see a hobby icon and it’s missing, then that’s news to me.

@simmerdownMAL 

The title is "Missing Career/Hobby Icons on Party-Search". I think that covers it quite well. Could it be you're looking at the Re: when replying?
This shows the original title. I change the titles to reflect the issues before adding to the bug list. But often the title when responding shows the old title. 
There seems to be both missing bubbles and missing items (see earlier reply by me in this post).

@Phantomlover1717Wow, players have been noticing this for quite a while. Someone on this closed thread (https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Closed-Certain-careers-hobbies-not-classified-properly-for/td-...) by the name of Greatlyn said exactly what I said back in October. Maybe that thread should be re-opened and linked into this one?

 

Edit: but I think icons showing up (or not showing up) on the party search bar is a separate issue from purple party interactions showing up (or not showing up) while at a party. These threads with their separate issues are hard to follow. At least they're hard for me to follow.
