The highest paying job long term is athletic but if you are looking for the quick promotions with little friends and good money, you should go military. you do have to work on body a bit though.

I realize it's been a few years since the posts on this topic, but I went ahead and did some research, and in case someone else Googles this and is directed here, I'll share what I did.
The following includes Seasons and University, but does not include the Free Time expansion pack careers, nor did I include the required amount of friends for each path.
The starred items indicate the careers that college is required for. The second column shows the number of days worked a week multiplied by the daily pay. I hope this helps somebody out there, and if anyone notices any mistakes or discrepancies, my apologies.
