I don't know why people keep downvoting my posts. I agree that they could be better, but I don't think my post's karma accurately reflects their worth. I am biased, however.

My name is Wes Reisen. I’m currently figuring out career stuff/life plans. I’m relatively new to the EA (I started interacting with it on July 12, 2023) 

How others can help me

Sometimes, I might ask for help with research. Also, if you know any good internship or volunteer roles, or any good job boards, or are hiring, please reach out! (Public résumé: https://www.canva.com/design/DAF2mR33vuE/4-qki-V4l87yNrkkI2oXdA/edit?utm_content=DAF2mR33vuE&utm_campaign=designshare&utm_medium=link2&utm_source=sharebutton) (One piece of vital and relevant[1] information about me is somewhat private[2], and is available upon request).

How I can help others

I’m pretty good with numbers(I feel comfortable thinking about (e^(1/0)), so if you have any questions about math, I’m happy to help!

I can also help with work and productivity tips (e.g., to stay awake, do something actively. Pause your all-nighter, play one round of Call Of Duty, and then get back to work. It’ll keep you up and productive all night long.)

I can also provide research assistance, summarize information, check things for errors (Not very well though), and more. Feel free to ask if I can help with __, and hopefully, I’ll say yes!

I also have connections with Kim Lewis, so if you'd gain from that, feel free to reach out, and I'll see how I could help with that.

I’m also quite passionate (though 80,000 hours points out that there are more pressing & tractable matters) about ageism/rights of youth, so if you have any questions about that, I can help with that too.

I recently found a huge public database of databases, and I figured I'd share it here.

I didn't know about this, now I think I have a new netflix shot to watch! thanks!

On the topic, I hear season 7, episode 5 of young sheldon is abput a dangerous AI. Edit: I watched the episode, it's not.

  1. you do bring up an interesting point that this should be factored into where nets are distributed.
  2. (this is a very draft-stage idea) maybe if the nets weren't that water-proof, this issue would be solved? (cons: flooding, rain, potential pollution if, in the water, it dissipates, and less durability)
  3. Maybe mention this to someone at givewell? idk tho

Although I’m no expert, maybe next you could try to be able to convert/download posts into google docs? Super cool btw.

I have a few ideas:

  1. (some of these jobs are less stable, especially at newer charities) https://www.charityentrepreneurship.com/our-charities You could apply to Charity Entrepreneurship’s charities, and I think it’s easier to get into the newer ones, since they often don't yet have as much of an established workforce as older ones. In addition, there’s going to be a swath of new ones soon, and there is a bunch of n We oner around every 6 months.
  2. If you haven't seen it already, there’s always the 80,000 Hours job board (https://jobs.80000hours.org/?jobPk=9524&utm_source=job-board-alerts).
  3. The EA opportunity board: https://ea-internships.pory.app/
  4. List of EA & EA-adjacent institutions to potentially apply to: https://ea-internships.pory.app/orgs
  5. if you’d like, I can link more specific opportunities - but for that please specify a few requirements (such as a broad salary minimum, general work hours, languages of fluency, and as many as you’d feel comfortable sharing.)
