Community College Alums Have An Edge in Hireing

Questioner asks:  "is being an alumni from a [community college] will give me somewhat of an edge in getting a good tenure track position in a few years [at a community college]"
Ansswer: Yes

"Having a cc degree in your own background can help immunize you against suspicions of covert snobbery. If you can make a convincing argument to the effect that teaching at this level is your first choice, and you say that knowing the realities of the setting, you may come across as the best of both worlds: the amply-credentialed candidate who actually wants to be here."
