How hard is it to find short-term work at a university?

I'm interested in working at a university after graduating (as a researcher and a professor), but I'm still unsure if I want to do that for the rest of my life or settle down in one place. Are there a lot of jobs for people who only want to teach for a limited time? Or do universities generally prefer professors to stay at one university? #academia #university-teaching

Whether teaching experience in graduate school is necessary or at least optimal for securing a post-graduate teaching position at a college or university?

As a newly minted graduate student, I was wondering whether colleges looking to hire post-graduates for teaching positions generally place extensive weight on teaching experience? Once I finish coursework in graduate school, is it advisable to teach classes while working on a dissertation or on comprehensive exams? Or is it recommended to focus on the exams and dissertation singularly? It is unlikely a graduate student will have extensive teaching experience upon completion of the degree, but I am unsure whether schools are generally looking for at lease some if not a good deal of teaching experience. #university-teaching #graduate-school #dissertation

Should I pursue my passion or what makes the most money?

For years I've been working with kids in elementary, middle, and high school. I have a knack for teaching as I tend to have a very strong conceptual grasp on many subjects, especially math. My parents even said I should become a professor when I grow up. My mom works at a university and she has introduced me to a few of them for internships. However, as much as I like teaching and have a lot of legitimate experience with it, I don't know if I want a career in it. It makes me happy, but it's not a very well respected or high paying profession. I, like many others, have always had the dream of never having to worry about money and having nice cars and houses and such, I'm a junior now and soon I'm going to have to make a decision and I want it to be the right one. #teaching #university-teaching #school #college

Is it wise to apply to more than one college?

I intend to study in Singapore, so I would prefer an answer relevant to the Singapore context, but I'm open to answers related to university applications for other countries. #university #university-applications #university-teaching

How difficult is it to transfer to UC Davis?

I am currently a biology major in community college and I was wondering, from first hand experience, how difficult was it for a majority of you to transfer into UC Davis, and how much time did you devote to it? Was the teaching style different from college to university? #college #biology #university #college-admissions #college-transfer #university-teaching #transfer

What is the best strategy for tutoring peers?

Some of my classmates struggle with concepts I'm familiar with. I'd easily be able to help them, but don't want to seem too forward. What's the best way to offer assistance without coming off as condescending or otherwise? #teaching #student #university-teaching #tutoring #peer-tutoring
