I've now had two sims, both female, who suddenly cannot go to work. Any "Work" command immediately disappears. I even had one of the two try changing jobs and still couldn't/wouldn't go to work. I tried resetsim, but no luck there. Any suggestions?

Try teleporting your Sims to work but you will need a cheat to enable teleportation.
- Hold down the keys Ctrl + C + Shift as this will bring up the cheat bar (the blue line running across the top of the screen.
- Type in the cheat without the apostrophes
Now find your workplace and shift and click on the ground near your workplace and select 'Teleport Here'. Then your Sims should teleport.
If your not keen on using the cheat, try buying the Teleportation Pad lifetime reward for 75,000 lifetime reward points. You can also use the testingcheatsenabled cheat for more LRPs but you need to type in the cheat in the main menu.
Hmm, I could try that, but I'm not sure it would work. Even if my sim is standing next to the building, she still won't enter. Heck, she's in the political career, so I told her to tour the building, then tried telling her to go to work while she was in there, and the action was still cancelled out. :\
Ankur: Mod or custom content cache: scriptCache.package
Ankur: New Sims and skin cache: simCompositorCache.package
Ankur: Look for a folder that says Thumbnails. Delete anything inside of it.
you: ok working
you: the other package files like challenge.package and socialcache.package don't matter right?
Ankur: remove custom content or mods:
Ankur: Go to The Sims 3 in your Documents folder:
Ankur: XP: C:\Documents and Settings\"username"\My Documents\Eletronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages\
Ankur: Vista or 7: C:\Users\"username"\Documents\Eletronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages\
Ankur: If you wish to get rid of them completely, delete anything within the "Mods" or "Packages" folder.
you: There isn't a folder called Mods for me.
you: Or packages.
Ankur: Okay, the above steps should resolve the issue.
you: Let me sec here a second.
you: It didn't work
Ankur: ..., please post the matter at game forum as that is what we could try here rest our game expert would look into the matter & provide you information at game forum.
you: Ok will do.
Ankur: Thank you for contacting EA.

So what I've done is deleted my game (saving the character of course) and pasting them back in with the lot and everything intact. This is a way to clear it up, but it only seems to last for so long. I'm going to give it another go I suppose and see if another career will do anything to help. Otherwise I guess my work around is best :/
