Startup Jobs and Opportunities

So you’ve been laid off

I have heard (apparently not unfounded) rumors that lots of brilliant, hard-working, dedicated people who are financially comfortable enough not to need to work have been getting laid off from unappreciative companies.

I’ve seen on several job boards suggestions that you start companies of their own. That’s very hard. Generally requires a wide collection of skills, only some of which you have and many of which you have no interest in acquiring.

So instead of creating your own, I will suggest you consider joining an existing early stage company.

The Founder Institute Alum Job Board lists jobs at our startups.

Or else joining a company very likely to make an important positive change in the world.

The 80,000 Hours Job Board has large well vetted lists of the best of the best of those opportunities.

And if you don’t want a job at all, we’re always looking for more mentors.
