About 80,000 Hours
80,000 Hours provides research and support to help students and graduates switch into careers that effectively tackle the world’s most pressing problems. We’re a nonprofit, and everything we provide is free.
80,000 Hours started in 2011 when our founders, Ben and Will, were about to graduate from Oxford, and were wondering what to do with their own careers. They wanted to make a difference, but the standard advice didn’t have much to say about which paths would be highest impact. So they started doing their own research, and eventually founded 80,000 Hours.
Their aim from the start has been to provide the advice they wish they’d had: in-depth, based on the best research available, and taking seriously the question of how to do the most good.
Since then, we’ve gone through Y Combinator, spoken to hundreds of experts, read all the relevant literature we can find, and conducted our own analyses of many career paths. Over 1,000 people have told us they’ve changed to higher-impact paths due to our advice. Read more.
