I would like to get a "feel" of the number of jobs lost in EA in a pandemic situation and the type of jobs being lost.
Did anyone get fired from an EA org or similar? Are orgs hiring less due to Covid than what they had planned in Jan 2020 (by how much)? Are there any changes for plans in 2021 in hiring than initially planned because of Covid?
I would like purely concrete examples.
Hypothetical Example Answers
- "I (or My friend) lost job from OPP as they told me they did not have funds to support me. I have 1 year Exp in EA doing research. Meanwhile I found a job in Data science."
- "We at GiveWell wanted to hire 5 researchers this year, but ended up reducing that to 1".
- "We at OPP have not fired anyone this year".
EA orgs or similar
GiveWell, OPP, Rethink Priorities, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, AMF, Open AI, Giving What We Can, TLYCS, Give Directly etc.
P.S Any other ideas on estimating/"understanding" this question, looking at other proxy data is also welcome. I know of this website for tracking the layoffs of US startups
