If you want to help solve the world’s biggest problems, making the right career choices is one of the most important things you can do. But these decisions are difficult and conventional advice can only help so much. You might be wondering: Should I study philosophy or law? Should I work for a big corporation or a small non-profit? What careers do the most good?

For help working through these types of questions, come along to this workshop, hosted by Effective Altruism: UoM. The workshop will be targetted to university students, but anyone thinking about how to have an impact in their career is welcome. It will be a mixture of short talks and exercises and at the end you will have a list of next steps.

We will be mostly relying on research from 80,000 Hours – an organisation that provides evidence-based career advice for people interested in high-social impact careers. 80,000 Hours is also part of the broader Effective Altruism movement, which is trying to solve the world’s biggest problems using reason and evidence.

You can find out more about these organisations below, but there is no required knowledge for this workshop – everyone looking to do good with their career is welcome.

There will also be free vegan pizza!
