How we can help

Whether you’re changing career or are already on an impactful path but have questions or uncertainties, we’d like to talk. Here are some ways we can help:

Review your plan

We’ll use our research to look for blind spots and to ensure you haven’t missed a great option. We can help you analyse which career path is best for you, compare it to your other options, and find the best options within a path.

Introductions

To help you succeed, we can introduce you to mentors, funders, and collaborators. We can have a greater impact if we work together as a community.

Job opportunities

We work closely with many of the organisations working on the problems we think are most pressing, so we can tell you about relevant job and funding opportunities.

For more on what speaking with us is like and how we can help, listen to this podcast with one of our advisers.

How it works

1. Apply

Fill in our brief application form, which should also help you structure your thinking.

2.Prepare

If you’re accepted, we’ll send you a link to schedule your advising session and guidance on how to prepare.

3.Have a 1:1 call

Your advising session lasts about 45 minutes and usually takes place via video call.

4.Stay in touch

We’ll keep in touch with you and provide further assistance via email or additional calls.

Who we can help

We’re most helpful for people who:

  • Take an analytical approach to social impact and career choice.
  • Aim to use their career to do the most good, and take seriously the idea of promoting welfare over the long term. You can read more about what we think it means to help others as effectively as possible on our key ideas page.
  • Are interested in the problems we think are most pressing, which you can read about in our problem profiles.

If you’re unsure whether to apply, we recommend that you do; it doesn’t take long, and many people say the application form helps them reflect on their plans. You’re always welcome to apply again if your situation changes. We speak with roughly 1 in 3 people who apply. If we don’t speak with you ourselves, we may be able to put you in touch with someone else to answer your questions.
