Getting a full-time faculty position is a difficult feat to achieve these days. There are many factors that have led to the increase in the ratio of adjuncts to full-time faculty that are unlikely to disappear in the near future.

Also, I am not trying to knock the adjunct lifestyle, but it is certainly not easy or dependable.
