How do you seek work as a college professor?

I will be going back to school in the fall for my Masters in Fine Art. I would like to teach at the college level when I'm finished. I know plenty of professors who have enough professional experience to begin teaching with only a Bachelor's degree. I have worked in my field for over 10 years. How do you seek a professor job?

Can I start teaching while studying for my Masters?

Talk to the placement office in the University you will be attending. Find out from a FA professor there or at your present college where teaching jobs are advertised. One place they are is the Chronicle of Higher Education. You can set up a search engine on the CHE site. "
