Jobs: Lots of Adjunct Positions-Pt. 1



It seems like lately there are a zillion adjunct and part time positions out there. I am sort of surprised, as from ewhat I’ve been hearing U’s were pulling these spots and making the full timers teach more classes. But, perhaps another way this is happening is that searches for full time positions are suspended and instead it’s cheaper to hire a few adjunct for now while the dust settles fro the economic meltdown. Anyway, I’ll be posting handfuls of adjunct positons throughout the next few weeks. I’ve done lots of adjunct teaching. Often it doesn’t pay great. But, it is a good way to pocket a few grand, update your resume, try out teaching a new type of course for you, and polish your lecture curriculum development skills. Also, I imagine for people without  much in the way of teaching experience, it is a good route to get some on your CV before job hunting for full time positions. That way your CV grows, and, you get to test the waters to confirm you like teaching before diving into full time.
