Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

I worked at a career and tech school (one of those ones that change name/ownership every few years), first time, teaching a juvenile delinqurency course for criminal justice students at $25/hr. I have a master's degree.

I just got a contract with a local college to teach a 6-hour workshop at $30 per hour. I have a master's degree, but the class is a community interest class...

Terrible. Do not get involved in this racket.

2,000 per a class.

The students are ignorant on this issue, those outside the academy love to glory in it and those within the academy want to escape from it.

Don't enter the contingent faculty prison. Once in, it is hard to get out.

Alan Abel in Brookfield, Connecticut said: As a professional lecturer over the past four decades ("Using Your Wits To Win"), I started out earning $50 and lunch for my first two-hour performance plus Q. and A. Presently, my fee is $7,500 plus all expenses. Not bad for a graduate of Ohio State University with a B.S. Degree in Education . Here is a link to a segment of my lecture before a video class in Troy,NY.

I am an adjunct for 4th year nursing students. For a 6 hr class I earn $3800.00 for the semester. I'm very pleased with my salary.

I urge anyone involved in adjunct work to join New Faculty Majority and check out SEIU's Faculty Forward Network.
