The truth is out there: The number of tenure track faculty positions is shrinking relative to the number of eligible candidates. 

Adjuncting may be viewed as a stop gap for departments who need instructors and candidates who are timing the job market, but these positions aren’t meant to be long term. For many scientists, this eventually crystalizes their decision to leave academia and pursue roles in industry. That’s great if you want to keep doing science, but what if you want to teach? What if you still love education?
