    Pros

    Flexible hours, good experience with lots of room to grow. Worked on a lot of projects that I learned a lot from.

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of bureaucracy with little room to move up. Clients were hard to pin down sometimes but they were great people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing and things will continue to grow and get better. Lots of freedom to make PSU a better place.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Portland State University (Portland, OR) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I reached out to the Accounting Department at the School of Business Administration. I was relocating to the Portland metro area and wanted to keep teaching accounting in post-secondary education. The department chair told me she might have a course I could teach and to come by her office to meet. She emailed me the adjunct faculty application and put me in the "bullpen". She emailed me in April with a course that she needed to cover. I'll be teaching at Portland State this fall.
