Types of career advice research

One proposed typology of research on career advice distinguishes between career choice research ("Which career paths are especially impactful?"), career success research ("What strategies are best for succeeding in a career?"), and career intervention research ("What can be done to help people pursue impactful careers?"). Within career success research, a further distinction may be drawn between generic (or movement-level) and specific (or individual-level) research, depending on whether the research aims to identify the most impactful careers in general or whether it seeks to determine whether a career is a good fit for a particular person or group of people.[1][2]

Organizations within the effective altruism community providing career advice include 80,000 Hours, Animal Advocacy Careers and Probably Good.
