  1. Career reviews index broken

    The career reviews index page (https://80000hours.org/career-reviews/) is broken in Chrome on Android decives. The career titles overlap with each other. As a result, the titles are unreadable and some cannot be clicked on.

  2. Article on Outsourcing

    Hello 80,000 Hours,

    After reading your article on here about web designing I have become interested in it. However, it seems to me that is a high risk job to be outsourced. Will all web designing, web development, and programming jobs be outsourced or will those jobs always exist in the USA and the UK?

  3. 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

  4. Which ideas were considered but discarded?

    Would love a list of "trashed" ideas, and reasons why they were trashed. It would also give us a fuller view of the careers already covered by 80,000 Hours.

  5. Contact effective idea-explaining channels in Youtube

    Contact idea explaining Youtube channels like Vox, big think, VSauce or any that explains stuff to their audience and that align with your views to explain your organization and your research to them to convince them to explain those things to their audiences in their characteristic ways

    Basically reach out for groups or persons that have larger influences to try to believe in your views and spreads those ideas further, either online or in person (although it's arguably easier online)

    Or try to get their followers interested and make them ask for that content from the content creators
    Or even…

  6. 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/

  8. Potential typo on https://80000hours.org/career-guide/introduction/

    In paragraph 3:

    'To answer this question, we set up an independent non-profit and did over five years alongside Oxford academics. Our only aim is to help you have the greatest possible positive impact.'

    You may have intended 'did over five years of research alongside...'

  10. ( @Peter Hartree: Wiki spam page: http://wiki.80000hours.org/index.php/Special:Contributions/Welix8

    http://wiki.80000hours.org/index.php/Special:Contributions/Welix8

    Very low priority.

    Peter Hartree or another of the three wiki operators⁽¹⁾ (Ben Todd, Carl Shulman) should delete user “Welix8” and his ‘contributions‘.

    (Found this via http://wiki.80000hours.org/index.php/Special:AllPages, as might someone else in the future.)

  11. Using an emerging personality system in career guidance

    There is a research team based in Portland, Oregon that has been working on a personality system for the past five years. They are known under the name Objective Personality. You should look into using some of the research from their system in career guidance. Their system has huge applications in AI, institutional decision-making, and career guidance. They have a YouTube channel called DaveSuperPowers.
