Hi, I'm Holden Karnofsky. AMA about jobs at Open Philanthropy
I'm graduating from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) with an Honors History degree this year. This gave me a nonstandard amount of experience with literature reviews and research for an undergraduate student.
However, I've seen that OpenPhil generally prefers its candidates to have non-humanities majors.
1) Is the latter claim true?
2) In general, how does OpenPhil rate research experience that is not in the field(s) currently being explored?
