The Open Philanthropy Project has 5+ job openings right now, which are an especially exciting way for people in the EA community to have an impact. Holden Karnofsky, Executive Director of the Open Philanthropy Project, would like to hear your questions about these jobs. He will host an "Ask Me Anything" session about the openings and what applicants should think about, here on the Effective Altruism Forum. He'll be answering questions Monday, March 26 from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm Pacific time with a break midway through.
I hope you'll join in with any questions you have about these jobs! See his interview on the 80,000 Hours podcast for ideas.

Possible suggestion (for Julia): Posting the thread a day or two in advance will allow people to submit questions early (and vote on which questions they want to see answered), so that Holden's time can be maximized by giving him more questions to answer on Monday. So that he's not waiting on Mon, ready to answer questions but with no unanswered questions available.

(This only applies if you think that otherwise there might not be enough questions posted to fully utilize the 3 hours)

Thanks! We'll consider that for the future.
