BitLife’s Highest Paying Jobs & Careers

Show me the money!

If you're looking to make a bunch of cash on your next Bitizen, then you'll want to make sure you pick the right job or career that will get you all the loot. This can be a bit tricky because there are a lot of jobs in the game, and some of them require you to go to a certain type of school or start out in a particular job and work your way up.

Here, we list the career choices you should make if you want to become rich in BitLife. If you're looking to keep all of your money and not have it be taxed, then you'll want to make your character in countries like Monaco, Sweden, or the Bahamas.

Highest Paying Careers

The highest paying job in BitLife is either Lead Actor or Singer. These careers both get you the fame bar, which can also be used to get a lot of money. The careers themselves have a high salary, but you can also use the Fame tab to write a book, film a commercial, and pose in a magazine. These will all net you additional cash, particularly when you are at high levels of fame. You can also gain a lot of followers on social media and promote products to get more money!


Becoming an actor or singer is your best bet to gain a whole lot of cash. You can even follow this guide to becoming a billionaire in BitLife by being an actor. To become an actor, you will need to start off young and take acting lessons. After mastering your acting skills, head over to the Special Careers tab and start trying to get gigs as an actor.

To become a singer, take singing lessons instead of acting lessons. After you master singing, try getting gigs as a singer via the Musician tab under Special Careers. That said, you can become famous in a lot of different ways, and these careers usually pay quite a bit. You can also become a Porn Star or a Writer, which will also get you the fame bar.


Now that the Sports Update has been added, you can become a professional athlete. You will need to make sure your character has a high athletic stat. To get a high athletic stat, make sure to go on walks and take up martial arts in your younger years. Continue to do this until you hit High School, and then join the sport of your choice.

Once you graduate, you can either go to college and attempt to get drafted, or you can go right out of High School and try out for a team. Either way, you can make quite a bit of money if you are in one of the top positions on your team. You will usually get a big contract once you are out of your rookie seasons.


This isn't really a job, but if you are part of a royal family or marry royalty, you get a lot of loot. Rather than having to work for it, you will just be rich by default, which is a pretty nice way to live.

To become a royal, you will need to be born in one of the countries that have royalty. This is random (unless you have god mode), so you might need to create multiple characters to get it. You can also marry into the family, which is usually just as random. As a side note, if you have God mode, you can just set your character as a Royal.

Political Office

While this career by itself does not pay particularly well, if you can make your way to something like Mayor or Governor, you can get yourself a bribe for a whole lot of money. This is usually in the millions of dollars, which makes it a pretty lucrative option if you don't have a problem with taking some money under the table. If you can get to the presidency, then there's even more cash to be made!


If you want to go a more traditional route to making money, just become a doctor of some sort. This will require you to do very well in school and go to Medical School, which takes a long time to complete.

However, if you can make it through all of the classes, you should be pretty well paid right out of school. You eventually want to get to Brain Surgeon, which is the highest paying career down this path!
