Thinking of those who freely choose to leave a tenured faculty position at a traditional college/university but may want to eventually return, please consider the following transitions.
From which position is it most difficult to return to a tenure-track position?
junior/community college professor
high school teacher
non-academic but related position (e.g. Dept. of Education analyst)
non-academic, unrelated position (e.g. small business owner)
None of the above is necessarily more difficult than the others to return from; it depends on other factors.
