Universities and colleges choose to hire visiting professors for various reasons, i.e. to fill a short term positions or to get a subject specialist onboard. A visiting faculty member is a calculated move to cut the costs but with the current hiring process it may become a headache for hiring team, the candidates and of course for the students when it takes longer.
Current hiring system is fragmented for both the universities and professionals; so there’s a need to bridge the gap. ProfHire is bridging this gap by connecting educational institutions and professionals looking for part time positions.
Individuals looking to join as a part-time faculty member complete only one comprehensive profile that is evaluated, vetted, and presented to higher education hiring managers. Further, the skills testing, compliance training, and onboarding can also be provided through this platform.
Hiring managers do not need to screen tons of profile; as ProfHire forwards them only 3 to 10 curated and vetted candidates for one position. This means, ProfHire pre-screens the candidates and provides the hiring managers with the best and they only have to interview a handful of already vetted candidates to select for their next hire.
In modern economy time is money for just everyone and ProfHire saves time of both the universities and professors.
ProfHire in Their Own Words:
More than half of college and university faculty are part-time and non-tenured. The current process for employing part-time faculty (aka adjuncts) is ineﬃcient, ineﬀective, and fragmented for both the university and the individual. Part-time faculty are frequently hired with little vetting, their teaching ability, and ability to handle difficult situations in the classroom becomes known only after a semester of employment. This means that the students’ education could suffer.
ProfHire is a single-source hiring and onboarding solution that provides an efficient and accessible method for hiring vetted and curated scholars and industry professionals. The system benefits both the applicants and the hiring managers. Individuals seeking part-time faculty positions complete only one comprehensive profile that is evaluated, vetted, and presented to higher education hiring managers. Skills testing, compliance training, and onboarding can also be provided through this comprehensive platform.
