This chapter aims to reveal the efforts of teachers working in private and public schools to adapt into their career. It employs phenomenology, one of qualitative research designs. The study group was composed of 20 teachers working in high schools. Maximum variation sampling, which is a type of purposeful sampling, was used in this study. While teachers working in public schools found teaching restricted as a career, those working in private schools thought they had a more dynamic profession. It may be stated that teachers working in public schools and in private schools encounter different types of difficulties and that they have differing strategies to cope with the difficulties. A new career system, in which teachers could specialize in their careers and routines could be avoid, could be introduced in both public and private schools.
