While I would love to use you all as an outlet to vent about what has driven me to seriously start looking for a new job, but that would be unprofessional and I would probably get into a lot of trouble.
Basically, I’m just tired of feeling like I hold myself to a higher standard than my superiors do; and the general feeling that I could leave tomorrow and no one would notice. That’s not how you want to feel at the place you work; especially a place you pour your blood, sweat, and tears into.
So, I’m working to finish up my CV (a type of resume I had never heard of until last week) and polishing up the questions (that my buddy Sara has been super nice to help me with) to apply as an adjunct professor for an online college/graduate program. Now, it’s an open application system, so there isn’t a guarantee they will have anything for me, or even pick me at all, but I feel like this is a good move.
I have always thought about teaching higher ed. with my degree, but haven’t really seen an opportunity for it. Since this is online courses, it’s convenient not only for the students but the professors too! I really hope something comes out of it, they even have an archives studies class, and as I am currently working as an archivist, that could be really cool to teach.
So keep your fingers crossed for me!
