  1. Workless Work?

    Are jobs that mostly only require one's presence in the repertoire of possible job suggestions? Such jobs can be a good way of earning a living while doing independent research and writing. I, for example, am a security guard and spend about 75% of my work time reading. I also make a decent enough salary that I can donate a substantial amount of my income.

    • 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.

      • The video in the "take a break" page of the decision tool is not available in Canada

        ...and probably other countries. Maybe you should replace it with a video that is available everywhere?

        • "Work with us" page is outdated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.

          • Career planning tool date field is backward for americans.

            In here:
            "When are you next going to review your plan?"
            The date field is DD/MM/YYYY, which Americans will find backwards. The international standard that avoids this is putting year first YYYY/MM/DD

            • What to do when you don't have "options" in Mind?

              The career guide / quiz seem to assume a lot more clarity of options and purpose going into this than I expected. Almost like I need to be most of the way to deciding before I bother with 80000.
              I don't know what options I have, because it's a fine line between none and so many vague / weak hopes or ideas. Without clarity of my options I can't even begin to gain value from your guide/quiz.
              What will you change?

                I would love to be able to read 80000 Hours via the Apple News app. It'd be nice to have all my consumption in one place.

                • Text Display

                  (On chrome, 100% zoom, HD monitor) In the standard font, there is no gap between the dot and rest of the letter 'i', making it look like 'l'. This makes it much harder to quickly read through text. Zooming in for example fixes this, but why should the user have to do that?

                  • Page display issue

                    On the completion page of your newsletter signup, your download link buttons display with 0 margin (Chrome v50), so they are right on top of each other. My guess, based on the styling of the bottom button, is that they originally displayed side by side (the mobi download links has an element style with a left-margin attached to it, which is causing it to display out of alignment with the button above it).

                    Suggested Fix:
                    CSS
                    .btn-primary {margin-bottom: 1em;}

                    and remove the left-margin inline style for the mobi download button.

                      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.

                        • Meaning/helping people

                          A very interesting read: "I could do anything, if I only knew what it was" by Barbara Sher.
                          In relation to step 1, meaning and helping others, this book gives a perspective that helped me letting go of beliefs about 'passion' and the idea of being selfish when pursuing things for myself and not 'for helping others'.

                          "You have to forget whatever you were taught about 'meaningful work' and start noticing whatever has meaning to you. [...] The very first step to finding work that fits you is to understand the connection between doing what you love and doing something…

                                      • broken link

                                        Found a broken link on this page: https://80000hours.org/career-reviews/tech-entrepreneurship/

                                        The link with the text "You might also like to read about our approach to rating careers" leads to an outdated page.

                                        • Twitter links on pages don't have pre-written text!

                                          Every time I try to share your article through twitter (by clicking the tweet link above the article), I get a popup ready to post to twitter with the link to your article, BUT THERE IS NO PRE-WRITTEN TEXT (like a copy of the article title).

                                          I know it's not much work to copy/paste the article title, or to write my own text, but I suspect there are many people who want to share your post on Twitter but are too lazy to write in something.

                                          I think you're missing out on some re-tweets ;)
