Please send good thoughts and prayers my way. . .

Last edited Thu Sep 15, 2016, 03:02 PM - Edit history (1)

In the next couple of days, I should be hearing about whether I got a new job. This is HUGE for me because it means that I would no longer be an adjunct going from school to school. It's for a full-time 9 month contract and would incorporate every skill sets I've acquired in the last 20+ years. (Our colleges start late here.)


Update:
Thank you, everyone, for all the good thoughts. Unfortunately, I did not get the position. The start date would have been today and I have heard nothing. I'm really tired of the adjunct life. It's no way to live, so I'm re-considering my career options at this point.

4. Hear, hear.

Being between jobs is never easy, especially in these trying times.

Things are getting better; but we still have a ways to go. All the best to Citizen Blues - and to you, Karmaqueen, for being such a good soul.

Adjunct positions are horrible, they don't pay well and they are totally abused by universities. Good luck!!!!

11. From a fellow adjunct: Hope and (humanist) Prayers!!

Good luck from somebody who is all too familiar to know what it means to be "part time" in academia!!
