Quest to find an old game

So I was kinda day dreaming today and I was remembering this old game I used to have back when I was probably 13 or 14, and now I can't stop thinking about it.

The point of the game was to find a good job. It was a two dimensional board game type layout, kind of like looking at a monopoly board. You started out with a character named Jim or Joe (honestly I can't remember what the name was but these seem to ring some type of bell). The game's title had the name in it as well. There would be businesses you could get jobs at, a school you could get an education at(so you could get a better job), places to eat, an apartment to rent and then once you had enough money you could buy a house. And with all this you only had, I think, 12 or 16 hours to go around the board and then you had to go to sleep, and start the next day at the beginning of the board.

Anyone every play this game or know the name of it?

Try The Game of Life, I'm not sure but I think it's pretty old and similar to what you're talking about.
