  1. Native advertising

    Hello! I am a Media Business Analyst at Qwertize and I noticed that you do not have native advertising. It brings additional quality content to your website that looks completely native to the configuration. It increases digital advertising revenues by attracting more viewers to your page!

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

  2. Verification of links and update of research

    I have noticed that a few of the links provided on the career guide do not actually work, I advise for all of them to be checked as it appears that some of the original articles have been moved to new addresses.

    Another suggestion is to update the articles on the website in general (and the statistics mentioned). I noticed that many were written in 2016, which is recent, but I think many could benefit and be even more convincing if they were updated with the newest statistics (or maybe new research is necessary).

    It also seems that the feedback…

  4. Jobs board

    Can you put in search filters for the jobs board? If I'm only interested in South or England based health/biorisk/development roles at a certain level then it would be great to regularly get emails or check for these in the same way that many other niche recruitment advertisers offer

  5. Target audience

    So you're use of examples such as UK specifics are great for a UK citizen like myself, but your target audience can be a little off sometimes. It often seems as though you're focusing on people who already have large amounts of career capital and can move easily, or those who have significant earnings already, not those at the start of their careers. You often tout most people as earning $40,000 a year, this is pure nonsense for most graduates in the UK. A lot of us (i don't know the figures) end up in menial entry-level jobs, if we…

  7. Congress can mandate labor union cert/recert elections at every private workplace

    Biggest US neglected problem: 80% of US workforce are “price takers” not “price negotiators” — due to near total de-unionization (down to 6% in private economy).

    Easy solution: our coming blue wave Congress needs to mandate union certification and re-certification elections at every private workplace; every one, three or five years, plurality rules on the latter.


    Why Not Hold Union Representation Elections on a Regular Schedule? Andrew Strom — November 1st, 2017 https://onlabor.org/why-not-hold-union-representation-elections-on-a-regular-schedule/

  9. Expand to France !

    You should definitely expand your public to European countries, translate your research, and build partnerships with meaningful companies you might have identified.

  10. Would be great to have a career guide for bioengineering research and applications

    Bioengineering in the past few years has made tremendous progress and can be an extremely high impact option for engineers, physicians (working in medical applications of bioengineered devices) and even graduates of biological sciences. Things like neural prosthetics could undergo major advances. Please consider making a guide for this field!

  11. One option for med students is to work on Brain machine interfaces, this way they can work on the AI control problem also.

    Brain computer interfaces have potential clinical applications in many diseases, such as paralysis following a stroke, or epilepsy. However, it can also help solve the AI control problem (described on this site as one of the most pressing problems to work on). As Elon Musk has described, by increasing the bandwidth of communication between the brain and the computer, effectively a symbiosis may be created between humans and AI, and we will not lose control over it. Secondly, a Brain computer interface may also help AI learn about human intelligence and emotions, which can help improve its decision making process.

  12. Translate 80000 hours to other languages

    ...starting with the content and languages that would have the most impact, of course. Why not opening a section for that in your website?
    I would gladly volunteer for translations to the languages I am fluent in.

  14. Account for Introverts/Extroverts

    As somebody in their fifties who has never found fulfilling work, the core problem was that the things i trained for did not account for the fact I am very introverted and cannot work happily with other people. The pressure (and hence my training) was directed at helping others to the exclusion of my own core personality and this caused me health issues and massive stress and has left me as a long term unemployed person in poverty, which I am sure isn't anybody's dream! Also please be aware that there are many bars to succeeding if your pursuit counters…

  15. serious diversity problem

    Your founders, core team, and advisors are all white-looking men. The women are all apparently relegated to support positions and are also mostly white-looking. How can you possibly know anything about doing good in the world if you have such a serious problem with your own in-house diversity issues? There are gzillions of wonderful folks from less-represented groups doing great philanthropy and development work!!!! You should have figured that one out a LONG time ago!!!

  17. "Work with us" page is outdated

    The only oppurtunity listed links to a page which talks about a 2015 or 2016 start date. The page itself says it was last updated 2014.

  18. Add hotjar to your web analytics stack

    Hi guys and thank you for existing.

    If you have not already done this i think you, in order to improve the 80000 hours website, should get hotjar in there and do the hotjar action plan.

  19. Noncommunicable disease

    Hi there,

    Thanks for all the great work and analysis you have been doing at 80000 hours. I was just wondering if you had thought about analysing noncommunicable disease as a 'most urgent global issue', particularly the role of malnutrition (undernutrition and overweight/obesity), which has strong links to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer?

    Using your own framework:
    -Scale: This is a massive global issue, which affects all countries around the world. The latest Global Nutrition Report has found that malnutrition directly affects 1 in 3 people around the world. Overweight and obesity is projected to increase in all countries worldwide,…
