    RA masters + NA grad certs to teach at RA school?

    Hello! Am asking this for a friend who has an RA master's in (general) administration and two NA graduate certificates (one in human resources management and the other in healthcare management ). He has significant management experience in a variety of fields and would like to apply for an online adjunct teaching position at an RA community college or a private 4-year university.

    Would listing all graduate programs on his resume make him more appealing (i.e., able to teach more courses) to hiring departments (I suppose undergraduate departments in business or management), or given the current bias against NA programs, would the NA programs "taint" his qualifications and he'd be better off just mentioning his RA master's degree?

    How would you look at his credentials if you were the hiring chair? Thanks!

    He should mention all of his credentials. Why not? He is applying for a public entity position. Government positions (employers) like to see lots of certs, etc. He should not sell himself short.

    P.S. I see that you mentioned public or private. I would proceed the same either way.
    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."

    I do not agree. I teach at an NA school and they did not want to see non-RA degrees listed in my posts to the class during intros.


    ** Note: I am not a hiring manager for adjuncts...for now....

    I would definitely agree in not putting NA degrees on an RA teaching application. However, the OP mentioned certificates. In that case, I would be more inclined to list them, even if they are from an NA school. It is quite common to have certificates that are not RA, including non-credit certs. Just keep them separate from your degree. I have a "Certifications" section on my resume for those things (mostly tech certs).

    My university only allows RA degrees to be listed. What kinds of NA "certifications" would you like to list with your RA employer?

    Flattered I hope, your educational background is an inspiration, I mean it. Sorry if I offended you, I can assure you it was not my intention.
