Due to many requests, I changed some of the levels. Thank you, gcybill, for the suggestions on the last three levels.

Never in my life did I think that I would use a manga to help me make something for sims! But it looks like it happened.
A mangaka is a person who writes manga. There are also many, many other people that help them, like editors and such.

Career is EP compatible.
Job icon:

1. Observer
As an observer, your job is to watch the real mangaka do their jobs. If you take your notes, then maybe you can become a mangaka some day!
M, T, W, Th, F - §115 - 9:00-15:00 (9am-3pm)

2. Gofer
Your job is to run around and get whatever your boss wants you to! So be prepared for whatever he may throw at you, because the job is tougher than it sounds!
M, T, W, Th, F - §228 - 7:00-15:00 (7am-3pm)

3. Coffee bringer
Now your job is to bring coffee to your co-workers. Although it may seem like a demotion, this job is very important! Your co-worker's well being depends on it!
M, T, W, Th, F - §287 - 9:00-15:00 (9am-3pm)

4. Secretary
Your job is to take calls and such for your boss. It is a bit of a stretch from your last job, but keep at it, and you may get a promotion soon!
M, T, W, Th, F - §385 - 8:00-15:00 (8am-3pm)

5. Editor
You've proven yourself worthy in the world of manga editors. You just need to earn a bit more trust, and you'll be on your way in no time!
M, T, W, Th, F - §475 - 8:00-15:00 (8am-3pm)

6. Head editor
Now you are at the top of your game. But being an editor just isn't good enough! You want to get your hands on some real manga!
M, T, W, Th, F - §668 - 8:00-15:00 (8am-3pm)

7. Proposal manager
Your job is to sell your mangaka's manga to a publisher. The job is much tougher than it sounds. Hang in there!
M, T, W, Th, F - §874 - 8:00-15:00 (8am-3pm)

8. Beginner Author
As a beginner, you haven't quite gotten the hang of this whole writing thing: But keep at it, and some day you could be a famous author!
M, T, W, Th, F - §1168 - 8:00-15:00 (8am-3pm)

9. Rising Author
Your name is starting to get out there, and you are really getting the hang of writing manga! Just a little more work, and you could be at the top of it all!
M, T, W, Th, F - §1460 - 9:00-17:00 (9am-5pm)

10. World-known successful mangaka
Now you are a professional! You get to spend your time writing all the manga you please! Just be sure to meet your deadlines, or there may be trouble.
M, T, W, F, Sa - §2350 - 7:00-17:00 (7am-5pm)

Great idea.

Somehow its title for the Top position looks less fascinating. It should be like.. World-known Mangaka or else  Rock

Maybe you could consider some adjustment on your career path for example to put:

8. Beginner Author
9. Rising Author
10. World-known Successful Mangaka
