We think in the future there is going to be a shortage of adjuncts in the market place, which is why a lot of schools have been ramping up the number of part time staff.

ScholarlyHires.com has posted approximately 300 ads for part-time adjunct positions in community colleges and four-year universities across the country. Because the positions are part-time, schedules are flexible and are ideal for people who are retired or who work multiple jobs. Adjunct faculty hiring has seen significant growth since the beginning of the year and colleges are turning to ScholarlyHires.com to fill their open positions.

"We're seeing a significant growth in adjuncts partially due to the Obama administration's push for higher education at the community college level," explained ScholarlyHires.com president Rick Friedman. "We think in the future there is going to be a shortage of adjuncts in the market place, which is why a lot of schools have been ramping up the number of part time staff."

Many schools post ads for adjunct teaching jobs online to create "adjunct pools" by identifying a certain number of adjunct faculty and keep them ready to go at a moment's notice. Once the need for a class opens up, they simply assign the best-fitting adjunct from the group to teach the course without having to do extra recruiting. Online courses are growing in popularity at many schools, and many are taught by adjunct faculty.

"Colleges find us and they post the jobs to our site; it's what the highest demand is right now, and we're expecting this number to increase as the year progresses," Friedman stated.

"What separates us from the competitors is the ability to post adjunct pools for six months, which is helping us grow significantly," Friedman explained. Because ScholarlyHires.com allows recruiters to advertise adjunct teaching jobs online for up to six months without additional fees, they are becoming recognized as a good place to recruit candidates for adjunct pools. With larger diversity reach, greater applicant flow, and regular increases in the number of job postings, ScholarlyHires.com is enjoying significant company growth.
