I have my master of science in Financial Engineering and about 10 years of professional experience behind me in the field and I am looking to get into teaching. Any suggestions on how best to go about it? Thanks!

Jake, I wish I could be more help. but it varies by state and university. A former instructor of mine did not have a PhD, but had a lot of experience in his industry. As such, he was allowed to teach Master's level classes at Rutgers. he also mentioned that as a Doctoral student and TA, he was compensated more than an adjunct prof. So part of it would depend on if you were going to pursue a higher degree while teaching, but being an adjunct may not be so bad if you just want to commit for a semester or two as a "temp job."

Is there some sort of network for finding academic gigs? a monster.com for professors?
