Careers Week

  • Athena Hotel 36 York Street Blackpool, England, FY1 5AQ United Kingdom (map)

Five days of career workshops, life planning, and socialising. If you want to make a positive impact with your career but don’t yet know how, this is the place to be!

There will be workshops during the days that will provide you with a structure for finding an impactful career. We will walk you through the 80,000 Hours career guide, and include group discussions, individual work, and reading. Alternatively, we will provide you with space to work by yourself. In either case, there will be EA career coaches at your service, who will be able to provide advice and materials. Evenings will be dedicated to socialising and fun. We are still working on the exact schedule and we expect to update it during the week itself, based on your needs, feedback and intuitions about what would be most useful.
