It’s not a great time to be looking for work, according to everything I have heard. And I really want a full-time position so that we can pay for our oldest son’s college. (Well, not if he goes to Wharton, but…) I doubt SLAC will be looking for full-time people this year. So CC2 is looking (+1hr) and one alma mater is looking (1 hr 15 m).
Should I apply? I don’t actually think I would get the AM job. It’s an area of specialty that I have been out of for years. I think I could do it and I could come up to speed, but it’s not something I’ve done. (Unfortunately.) CC2 isn’t really what I want to do, although I can do it and I enjoy doing it. It is a clear challenge. But I really want to enjoy teaching and I am not sure I will if I do that.
So there are two jobs available, but not good travel time and not great fits.
I need to think about it, though. I may be sorry I didn’t apply. But I expect that AM will have plenty of candidates and will have a pile of resumes to sort through… I wish I could throw my hat in the ring with confidence, though. Even with the commute, it would be fun.
