Bio

I'm Director of One-on-one Programmes and Job Board at 80,000 Hours.   I work in four areas:

  1. On the job board
  2. On the "one-on-one" team that has conversations with people about their social impact and career
  3. On special projects (like the longtermist survey)
  4. On org-wide strategy

Yep, kudos to Will for the huge effort he’s put into the launch as well. I understand that many of the key media pieces came as a result of relationships he’s developed over the years.

I think  Abie Rohrig  and the broader team have been crushing it with the launch of What We Owe The Future.  So so much media coverage and there are even posters popping up in tube stations across London! 

In case it's helpful, the first thing below the title on the job board says:
>Some of these roles directly address some of the world’s most pressing problems, while others may help you build the career capital you need to have a big impact later.

I'd be interested in any ideas you had for communicating more clearly that a bunch of the roles are there for a mix of career capital and impact reasons.  Giving our guess of the extent to which each role is being listed for career capital vs impact reasons isn't feasible for various reasons unfortunately.  

>it kind of worries me
Is that because you think the job board shouldn't list career capital roles,  because it wasn't obvious that the roles were career capital-related, or something else?

I agree with this and I appreciate you writing this up.  I've also been mentioning this idea to folks after Michelle Hutchinson first mentioned it to me. 

I think linking to organisations' AMAs on the EA Forum is a neat idea!  Thanks for sharing.  I've added it to our list of feature ideas we might build in the future.  

Hey Yonatan,

Thanks for building this! I’m excited for people to play with the job board data and explore alternative ways of displaying it.  It’s both helpful to job board users, and it also helps the job board team prioritise which features to build next. 

(One very minor comment is that the !Org and Org fields are redundant, so you might want to just show !Orgs by default?)

Excited to see future iterations. 

Neat!  Do you want to make a graph using the inflation-adjusted data?
