Hello all, So recently I was discussing my plans of obtaining a MSCJ from Troy University so that I can teach online as an adjunct when a friend of my wife chimes in saying that it is a pipe dream. She said that college positions are so competetive that unless you're already teaching, getting your foot in the door is next to impossible. Okay.......but I'm talking adjunct. She then says that they do hire adjuncts, usually the ones they've hired in the past and that they will generally have over a 100 resumes per position. (She works as an English Comp. instructor). So is there any validity to this claim? The only reason I am pursuing a CJ degree at the graduate level is because: A.) It is interesting...........but not THAT interesting that I wouldn't just as soon take an MSM or MBA that I could use in management (which is what I do). B.) Mainly, I'd really like to teach part time. So my questions are: 1.) Is what she says true? 2.) If not, just how difficult is an adjuct position to attain? 3.) Lastly, is teaching CJ that competative?
