Who are we?
We started 80,000 Hours because we couldn’t find any sources of advice on how to do good with our own working lives. Since then, we’ve been on a mission to figure out how best to choose a career with high social impact.
Some people we’ve helped:
Jess was considering doing a PhD in philosophy, but was concerned it wouldn’t make a difference. Instead, she switched to behavioural science, has worked with an organisation advising the UK government, and feels like she has far more options to have an impact.
“80,000 Hours has nothing short of revolutionised the way I think about my career.”
“80,000 Hours helped me think more critically about my career choice, which has had a significant impact on where I am today.”
