Our Values


Everything we do is ultimately in pursuit of making the world a better place. If 60,000 Hours is no longer the best project for us, we’ll shut it down.


We always look to the best available evidence to underpin our advice – ideally scientific consensus.


Your choice of career is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make, so want our advice to be astonishingly in-depth, and believe that careers advisers should be more professional than doctors.


We make clear how we reach our conclusions, and also any mistakes we made along the way.
