Section Intro: Jobs

Most adjuncts want full-time work; there are few adjuncts who would turn down offers for tenure track. Tenure offers those aspects adjuncts most desire: job security, benefits and insurance, reasonable pay, and support for research. Given the current volume of graduate degrees being produced, the shrinking tenure system, and current corporatization of universities, there are more, not less, adjuncts. In short, this means we are competing with one another for work. However, if we are able to make the interview and hiring process as transparent as possible for the various institutions (two year, four year, and R1), it is likely we, as a pool, will not only be better prepared for our applications and interviews, tenure review and careers, but also that we can and will apply to the appropriate schools to which we are best suited.
