    400 new full time online positions

    A large for-profit that I adjunct for (not UoP and I will not disclose the name) just announced they will have 300 new full time online positions. Could this be a move away from adjuncts? I am sure no one is forecasting that much growth.

    WOW really? That's about $18,000,000 in salary costs alone per year. Is my math right? That can't be right. $45k per year average brings in 18 mil. Holy cow.

    If I had to take a guess, I'd say they aren't necessarily adding 400 new positions. Rather, they've had to dramatically cut back adjunct hours due to Obamacare and are having to hire new adjuncts to take up the slack. I really don't want to turn this into a political thread, but it's been widely reported that schools are reducing adjunct hours across the board to get under the 30 hours per week limit to keep from having to buy healthcare for them. Here are three articles I quickly pulled up so you can see what's going on...

    Randell, are you sure these are full-time positions or 400 new part-time adjunct positions?

    I can believe a large for-profit would move teaching load from adjuncts to full-time instructors*about now. Especially if this responded to concerns from their accreditor.

    My university is hiring four full-time CJ faculty this year (it shall remain unnamed). I don't know about the other disciplines i.e. education , business, etc.

    I speculated that they did a cost analysis and figured that it would be marginally cheaper and more reliable to hire four full-time CJ faculty, instead of trying to increase the number of adjunct faculty who are willing to work fewer hours (under the Obama limit).

    MY MISTAKE - it is 300 positions, not 400. Here is part of the email:

    ... creating up to 300 full-time faculty positions at.....

    Okay, through my amazing resources I have discovered that the non-profit that is hiring 300 new full-timers is Everest Online. The only reason I'm making it public is because we're in a crap economy right now and there might be some who could use the work. So, there you go...Everest Online.

    Nice. Their search for job opening seems to not work in Firefox. When I tried in IE and selected "work from home" is seems to think that both Texas and New Jersey on-site are "from home."

    I think the magic words here are "up to"... don't forget that could mean 1-300. It doesn't guarantee that 300 will be hired.

    That feels kinda rude.

    Well, I will not confirm not deny it but if the positions are open to internal employees first, anyone not already employed could not apply. And you are right, there might be someone that could use the work but applying for a position that is not created might not do a lot of good. I will be more selective about sharing any future information.

    It was never meant to be rude. We are, indeed, in a crap economy right now, the worst I've seen in my lifetime. Europe is headed into an unprecedented triple-dip recession and things aren't looking so rosy on my side of the pond. Fact is, people need work right now. If I can do some small thing to help others find a little work, I'll gladly do it.

    I'm sure you didn't think I was asking you to justify a bad economy again. I meant, that choosing to out someone's employer who asked for privacy in the thread sent you to scour your "amazing resources" at light speed and post the results in this thread. THAT, feels kinda rude.

    No one here REALLY expects anonymity, but if you'd found the info, and felt it worthy of sharing, why not create a new thread announcing the job posting- including a link- and posting it? That way, you share the information and let others connect the dots on their own? In option two, you facilitated information and preserved anonymity.....option one is kinda middle schoolish.

    Good news for those with doctorates looking for opportunities for full time work.
