At this point I am not wedded to staying in the faculty track, and have been applying for admin positions as well as faculty ones.

Would you pay to have a temporary SME?

My pitch to a company with open positions: You have a job opening, I'm [overqualified] for that job, but I can start as a consultant immediately and since I'm already experienced in that role I can hit the ground running.
