I've been struggling on temporary work (part time), trying to get a permanent position. I've been going out of my way to get noticed, giving presentations, etc. In the past, there has been a 15% faculty cut, two departments are now online only, and there was a long time hiring freeze. Now, a faculty member said there are talks about removing her position. I'm scared too!
I'm very low on cash. I've been living on the generosity of others (sometimes sleeping in the video room). I don't have money to move again. I really had high hopes for a promotion.
If there's another cutback, how would I start over with no cash reserves. I was laid off & without a job nine months (& search across state line) before finding this job. How does one emotionally cope? And, what would be some practical steps for starting over again & again (but now with zero money)?
I'm seriously about to scream and start crying
