I am looking to utilize it in a full time job. It is hard to get a teaching position without a PHd and even though I am an adjunct Faculty it does not pay the bills. What options are out there? Is stopping at a MA level a bad idea. I have two young kids, I don't think I will be able to go back to school any time soon.
I am a junior majoring in sociology and my career goals include teaching sociology at the community college level. Is getting my M.A. in sociology the best way to go about this? Are there M.A. programs specifically for people who plan to teach at a CC? Does it make a difference?
What exactly is it like teaching at a junior college? What is the difference between a full-time and adjunct faculty?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I want to get an MFA in Creative Writing and become a professor. I know the jobs are highly competitive and I'm willing to move if I have to. But what helps your chances? Getting published? Working as a TA? Cutting off an ear for them? What? Lol.
If so, what is the percentage? If not, what keeps colleges from hiring only adjunct faculty?
What about a technical college? They don't have ranks such as professors, associate professors, etc...
I would like to begin teaching online college classes. What educational requirements do I need? What are some good resource sites for finding jobs and networking with others with the same interests?
Thanks Toronto, but I'm not impressed with your claimed internet identity, you are obviously unemployed or underemployed to have that kind of free time.

I'm interested in teaching at a community college. I'm a CPA and would teach accounting. I'm curious if other accountants have done this and enjoyed it or not. How do people do this with a full time job? Has anyone made the transition into doing this full time after working in industry?
I recently earned a PhD in Education. Is it possible to adjunct for various colleges and make a decent living (65K or more)? Because my husband works a lot and we have small children, I was "drafted" to stay at home with them.
Any input will be appreciated.
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? It's not as if those types of jobs are posted. Would you contact the college directly and send a resume? Is there a place where these types of things are advertised? Can I start teaching while studying for my Masters?
I would love to teach at the college level. I have taught in workshops, community classes, etc. However, every teaching experience wants someone with teaching experience. How can I get the experience unless I am hired to teach? I have a masters in Business and working on my PhD in public policy.
My boyfriend received his Bachelor's degree in law, his Masters in law, and his Bar at Law, from the UK, and has some experience as a lawyer. If he has a work visa (which he does), is he able to apply for a job as a lecturer / instructor / adjunct faculty member in a US law school?

What subjects are most needed to be taught in colleges, and which professors (subject-wise) are the ones with the most job security?
I have done BE (Electronics & Communication) and MBA (Systems & Finance). I have 5 years of experience and am working in Business Process Management field. I am also ITIL Foundation and Six Sigma Green Belt Certified.
I want to study further. Kindly suggest some course or certification that I can take up which helps me in my job and boosts my career.
I am a PhD student and I am ready to graduate. I have studied Health and love teaching. There is one problem though: I hate research...Do not get me wrong: I love the thirst for knowledge and knowing more, but just can not do research AS A CAREER.
I love to teach and spread the knowledge. Will there be jobs in university or colleges for just teaching courses? I am well versed in teaching...
What other sort of jobs do you suggest for me?
