The ethics of choosing careers and jobs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Probably the most common reason students pursue a college degree is to improve their professional prospects. In fact, important choices students make about college, such as which institution to attend or what discipline to study, are often guided by their desire to improve their professional prospects. But our professional choices don’t just affect ourselves. They also affect others, thus making it reasonable to ask how ethical considerations should shape such choices. Before I explain the view I’ll defend about such choices, we need some basic vocabulary.
