80,000 Hours provides research and support to help students and recent graduates switch into careers that effectively tackle the world’s most pressing problems.
We’re a Y Combinator–backed nonprofit funded by philanthropic donations, and everything we provide is free.
What we offer:
- Our online guides — our career guide, which covers our core advice, as well three other guides which cover which global problems are most pressing, ideas for new high-impact career paths, and how to make a career plan
- Our podcast — in-depth interviews about the world’s most pressing problems, and how you can help solve them
- Our job board — with current opportunities to work on big and neglected problems and build skills
- One-on-one advice — which helps our most engaged readers enter the paths that are best for them, by helping them make an individual plan and by making introductions to mentors, jobs and funding.
