    Part time Adjunct Lecturer

    Nov 9, 2015 - Part Time Lecturer in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Parsons is one of the best fashion schools on the planet and has amazing resources and immense talent, both in its faculty and staff. There is a Union for the part time faculty, so that after 1 year you can sign up for great health insurance and a retirement account.

    Cons

    There is no training, even with experience teaching, you're expected to just jump in and do it! There is no job security. You can find out 6 weeks before the semester starts that you are teaching. The pay is average for the US for an Adjunct Lecturer, you only get paid for 'contact' hours, no extra hours for preparing lectures, grading, etc. The pay should be higher because we're in New York City, one of the highest costs of living in the US. Many part timers at Parsons have to teach at several schools just to survive, and so are exhausted and have no time for working on their own businesses.
