  1. Evaluating the impact capabilities of Urban Planners

    Much of the work of a planner requires mediation between major facets of society: government, citizenry, and private interests. It's both policy and constructing the built environment, which has major repercussions on community psyche, health, sustainability, and longevity. For how involved planning is in daily life, it goes widely unrecognized. Can this be examined on the career page?

  4. Make this work: https://80000hours.org/job-board/feed/

    An RSS feed would be very helpful to keep track of new offers (and it doesn't work) https://80000hours.org/job-board/feed/

  6. Community College and Degree Reviews

    Hello 80,000 Hours,

    I'm Jacob. I am a community college student who constantly reads through your works to help myself decided on my educational outputs and career ideas. I wanted to make two suggestions.

    One, could 80,000 post a review on community college in their blog? The pros, cons, and 80,000 Hours overall thoughts on community college?

    Also, much like how you all have a career review page could you have a degree review page? Instead of listing out jobs it would list different BA degrees (English, Business, etc.) MA degrees, and PHDS? I know the career reviews has some…

  7. EA careers that mesh well with parenthood. Profiles of people with high impact who were also raising kids.

    There are a lot of parents (especially mothers) who take a career break or scale back on the hours worked in order to raise a family. How can these people go on to have a significant impact? Please profile people who had a large impact without neglecting their families. The first example that comes to mind is Jane Jacobs. What to do when the bottlenecks are limited time and career capital. Maybe talk about the role of volunteering in building civic society and the backbone of communities, the role of volunteering vs paid work.

  8. Great impact could be had by fostering collective impact

    Instead of focusing purely on fields that can be packed with clear evidence, people with the right skill set could have a disproportionate impact by acting as facilitators of various organisations operating in their local region towards similar goals and coordinating their efforts and encouraging collective learning and impact. https://ssir.org/articles/entry/collective_impact

  9. Add 4Ocean, The Ocean Cleanup, and Ecosia to your list of high impact companies

    Tackling the world's plastic problem should be treated as one of top priorities for the environment, our health and the whole planet. 4Ocean and The Ocean Cleanup are great companies which are both providing solutions in this area. And the environmental damage from deforestation is being addressed by Ecosia, and I believe these are all great companies to work for.

  10. 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.

  11. 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...'

  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. 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.

  17. 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…

  20. Put more females on the 80,000 hours team.

    I'm a male, but I recognize that there's a lack of female writers for 80,000 hours. A lot of the careers mentioned in the guide are male-dominated fields, and it would be helpful to have advice for females on how to progress through such fields, such as by providing links to strong female STEM organizations that can provide community and connections.
