Adjunct professors teach college classes on a part-time basis. These individuals will usually teach one class per semester. They teach at night and the subjects are usually quite specialized. Adjunct professors do not hold a tenured role at the college and they are usually paid a smaller amount of money than full-time professors.
Skillset: Adjunct professors need advanced practical knowledge in some subject. Part of their job involves the ability to contribute real-world experience to the academic setting. They must be good teachers with the ability to connect with students. They should be very organized to keep up with students and their files.
Education: Most schools require their adjuncts to have at least a college degree. People who want the best chance at these jobs should pursue graduate education, as well. These jobs are quite competitive, so having the best education will give a person a leg up on the competition.
Career Path: These teaching jobs are all about experience and expertise. Adjuncts teach on the subjects that they know the best. This means they will need to establish a track record in the business world. From there, it gets much easier to sell one's self to a university that needs a teacher.
