So, I'm getting to the end of my job search and have been unsuccessful. A few bites, but no offers for a tenure-track gig. Now I am seeing more temporary positions popping up (sabattical replacement, visiting, full-time temporary). Are these worth pursuing?
I eventually want to find myself in a tenure-track position, but I am thinking my ABD status may be preventing me from landing something this year— given the strong competition. Do you all think finishing my Ph.D. and getting one of these positions would be better for the long haul (i.e., hitting the market harder next year)?
