Forecasting, institutional decision and community.

Also storytelling, theology, puns.

I would like to chat. Book a call here:

  • because you want to and I'm giving permission
  • to talk about something that interests you that I posted about
  • I'd love to hear about a project you're thinking of running

I'm equally active on twitter @nathanpmyoung

Is it no longer hard to get a direct work job?

I think a clearer picture of how easy it is to get jobs would be really useful. Like there could be a job survey people fill out about how many jobs they applied for and what their skills are. Then we could have better expectations.

What advice would you give to an EA org that's hiring?

Consider where EAs are and post in those places. Whether on twitter, the EA jobseekers slack, newsletters, etc etc.
