Some words about how careers work

Each day at about /91:760 (midnight CEST) is payday for your current career. You can switch careers at will and pick up where you left off on one earlier, but your career at payday is what gets another day in rank and paid in credits and bonds. Look at the page on your career that is linked from this page to see which tasks leave you at risk of ending up in sickbay or the brig if you fail.

Old Rank Needed Days in Rank Needed Tasks Completed
1 2 about 50
2 4 unknown
3 8 unknown
4 16 unknown
5 32 unknown

To advance to the next level of the career you must have the proper number of days at your current level, do enough tasks to earn experience towards the next level, and do at least one task after achieving the correct number of days. For your first career it is unlikely there will be a problem doing enough tasks before you get enough days to move on. However you can game the system for secondary careers and achieve the days in rank first and then do just enough tasks to move on. This will allow you to spend most of your task focus on higher paying tasks from your primary career.

As an example. after you you achieve a decent rank in your primary career you can start to work on a second one. Change to be the second career just before payday, and switch back afterwards. Use your focus for high paying tasks of the primary career. After you have completed enough days in rank, then do just enough tasks to get promoted. This way you can move on to higher paying jobs as soon as possible. If you have not increased in rank and already have the correct number of days, apply the new day to your primary career or start another one, but don't waste a day on a career that does not need it.

If you really want to use focus on all 5 stats, you can switch careers several times in a very short time to do tasks from multiple careers.
