The idea this week: your career choices may be much more important than you think — and we have a lot of resources to help you think them through.

Your career is one of your biggest opportunities to make a difference in the world and also have a rewarding and interesting life.

That’s why we wrote our career guide — to help people create a career plan that’s aimed at having a positive impact and a fulfilling career.

But there’s a lot of ground to cover, so we couldn’t do it all in a single book.

That’s why we wrote our advanced series. It covers our most in-depth research on questions like:

  • What does it mean to “make a difference”?
  • What is “longtermism,” and why does it matter?
  • Is it ever OK to take a harmful job?
  • Can we balance doing what we love with having a positive impact?
  • What role should finding your personal strengths play in your career?
  • How should you coordinate with others when trying to do good?
  • How long should you explore different career options?
  • And a whole lot more!

We hope the articles in our advanced series help you tackle these questions and accelerate you along your path to an impactful career.
