Our everlasting pressure when we choose to take up academic profession.

Being a college teacher used to be a decent and admirable job in the past several decades, but who knows the pain of college teachers? It is very tired to teach classes and simultaneously do scientific research. And the pressure of publishing academic papers makes me exhausted whenever Iím at work or out of work.

It is difficult. My husband is one. He works very hard, and has worked very hard as long as i've known him. When he was an assistant professor in the US, going up for tenure, he seriously thought about throwing in the towel. But he didn't. I can't imagine him doing anything else, either. For some people it's worth it.

Re: Our everlasting pressure when we choose to take up academic profession.

I think its just deserts for spending the whole day doing something you enjoy.

There are many much easier - and often better paid - jobs that simply involve enduring eight hours of boredom, misery and futility each day.

I know which I'd choose.

Yeah! I totally agree with you. I suggest Scientific & Academic Publishing for your academic articles publishing. My article was successfully published there. I think it is a potential publisher, offering comprehensive service to scholars in any scientific fields.
Is it true? where i can find it?

There are also much harder jobs that pay much better...

Harder?

You realise this is a thread for lecturers and teachers, don't you?

What would we do with hard work?

With regard to other jobs, can you give some advice in detail?

If you're in Switzerland or planning to move here, yes.

If you're in the United States, no.
