        Business Outlook


        The faculty in my department (Writing Studies) is very friendly and supportive; within certain parameters, the department leaders are open to and encouraging of fresh ideas in teaching, They have strong respect for the students, many of whom are minorities and/or the children of immigrants.


        The pay for adjunct professors -- at any university -- is abysmal. At MSU, adjuncts can only teach two classes per semester, so many are employed at multiple universities, trying to make ends meet. The difference in pay between tenured profs and those who teach most of the classes (the adjuncts) is ridiculously large.

      Project Manager

      Hey everyone, Just needed to vent a bit about this job hunt. It's been a wild ride, to say the least. Lately, it feels like I'm sending my applications into a black hole, and I'm not alone in this, am I? Interviews seem to be the rarest gems, and job postings seem to disappear as soon as I hit 'apply.' Anyway, I'd love to hear your experiences. What's been your biggest frustration as a job seeker? How do you stay motivated in this crazy journey? Any words of wisdom or empathy to share?


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests


      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
